Katie's Take

Although it may be a bit TMI, I think for women my age this is worth sharing: about 6 in 10 of us have trouble sleeping, and the problem may be related to menopause.

I must admit, over the past year I've had a few nights of staring at the ceiling around 3am.  While I've found that I can get some of my best work done in the wee hours, I'd rather be fast asleep.

What are the links between sleep and estrogen levels?  Is this related to age and menopause?

In this episode I have a frank conversation with OB/GYN Dr. Becky Brightman.  I hope you find her information and her tips helpful, and be sure to send me your thoughts, as well.
