Hormonal induced insomnia affects millions of women especially those who are going through perimenopause and menopause, but can occur at any age past puberty. Women who have been suffering from insomnia for over a week or who battle frequent bouts of sleeplessness should see their health care provider immediately.
In sharp contrast to premenopause which involves the few days (or weeks) before a woman stops menstruating for life, perimenopause accounts for a much longer period of hormonal transitions.
The thing about perimenopause is that it can even span over many years (more than 10 years in fact) and could relatively be silent until the last few weeks before menopause sets in. With both conditions having similar symptoms, it is easy for women to generally mistake perimenopause for premenstrual syndrome and vice versa.
The symptoms of perimenopause are considered to be more intense than those experienced during PMS.


More than the physical symptoms of perimenopause (including night sweats, hot flashes, profuse sweating, heavy menstrual bleeding, shorter menstrual cycles, vaginal dryness, joint stiffness, muscle pain, fatigue, insomnia, decrease in libido, and frequent urination etc.), it is the emotional side of the condition that needs to be dealt with carefully.
The emotional symptoms of perimenopause are erratic enough to disrupt an otherwise normal life.
Of course with all the perimenopausal symptoms wreaking havoc in your brain, there is no way you would be able to concentrate on your work or even the simplest of things around the house. Transient insomnia usually lasts one week or more while acute insomnia can last one month or longer. This in turn would lead them to believe that they are not experiencing perimenopause but something else. Even though both conditions are caused by elevated estrogen and progesterone levels in the body, in the case of PMS, the symptoms vanish right after the completion of the menstrual cycle.


There are several causes of insomnia such as diet, lack of activity, illness, medication and hormonal fluctuations. Not so with the case of perimenopause, the symptoms of which seem to persist irrespective of whether a woman has had her monthly cycle or not. This in turn would cause other issues like headaches, stress, body pain, migraines and disturbances in your sleep patterns. And each woman going through perimenopause may experience symptoms that are unique to her body condition.
