Women's brains handle stress better than men's but only till menopause

Menopause can leave many women feeling much more emotional and prone to stress and it appears the reasons are biological.  Recent research published in  the journal Molecular Psychiatry shows that estrogen protects the brain from stress. As estrogen levels drop after menopause the activity of neurotransmitters is altered and areas of the brain such as the pre-frontal cortex do not function as well in the presence of stress.  The increased stress resiliance of women as compared to men is also thought to be due to the effects of estrogen, this protective effect of estrogen is lost after menopause.  Women making the transition through menopause need to consider ways of treat themselves more gently. It is also the time to put more attention into stress reduction skills.
