Women Who Go Into Menopause Later Have A Better Memory When They Are Older, New Study Shows

Many women would gladly delay the onset of menopause just to put off the hot flushes and night sweats that often come with it.

Now, a study has found that a later menopause may have another benefit – boosting the memory.Sponsored: Gambar Koala

The average woman goes through the menopause at the age of 51, but every year of delay appears to help the brain.

In a test that involved remembering 45 words, women who had a later menopause remembered an extra word compared to those who went through it a decade earlier. 

The team at University College London who conducted the research believe more years of oestrogen may benefit memory.
