iam STILL perimenopausal. (It seems like years for me and still i am not menopausal!) I was listening to a dr on this website that was talking about DIM for estrogen regulation and was wondering if any of you on this site have tried it and how did it help or not help. I am having a hard time with concentration also and would like some feedback from other women as to how they are experiencing this condition and what if anything they are doing about it! I sometimes think my brain is just skipping out on me .... anyone out there that can relate to this?
thanks cindy

Cindcurren, don't you love all those times when we feel like if we'd just eat all our vegetables like our moms always said, we'd be coming by all these nutrients naturally?

Here's an information site on Diindolylmethane, run by faculty members and research fellows at UC Berkeley:


The purpose of the site is to provide information for both consumers and researchers, so it can be kind of dry in places. But it's broken into sections with different headings, which is really helpful. Most of the effects documented on the sight are the immune-system and cancer-fighting properties of DIM. There's also a list of medical research; if one of the studies look pertinent and interesting to you, any librarian should be able to help you find a certain study.

Take care. Perimenopause is definitely survival of the fittest!

There are quite a few women on the Empowher site who have been experiencing memory loss or their brain skipping out as a result of menopause:

I am not sure about DIM supplements, but do know that Diindolylmethane (DIM for short) is found naturally in broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale (www.cancer.gov).

Can you tell us more about what you heard regarding DIM? Any side effects that you are concerned about?
