ABSTRACT Sleep disorders in the menopause are common. Although these disorders may be due to the menopause itself and / or the associated vasomotor symptoms, the etiology is multi factorial and includes a number of other associated conditions. They may simply arise as part of the aging process and not be specifically related to the decrease in estrogen levels, or alternatively, because of breathing or limb movement syndromes, depression, anxiety, co morbid medical diseases, medication, pain and / or psycho social factors. The most commonly encountered sleep disorders in menopausal women include insomnia, nocturnal breathing disturbances and the associated sleep disorders that accompany the restless leg syndrome, periodic leg movement syndrome, depression and anxiety. This review article addresses sleep and the sleep disorders associated with menopause and briefly the role that hormone therapy may play in alleviating these disorders.
