Dr. Emdur explains how estrogen can affect the way a woman's brain functions.

Dr. Emdur:
You know, estrogen is extremely important for a woman’s mental health and the reason why is estrogen is needed to balance neurotransmitters in the brain. The neurotransmitters determine our brain speed, how we coordinate things, and how we function. If your estrogen levels are low, your neurotransmitters will be out of balance and you will have trouble concentrating. You may have insomnia. You may forget where your keys are. So, by checking your estrogen level and balancing that, you actually improve your memory and brain function.
