Insomnia is a very common disorder that occurs to 22.8% of women in our country, and although it can occur at any age, it is much more recurrent in women over 40 years of age. In fact, it is such a common problem that sometimes we normalize it, and we think that there is no solution to our sleep problems.
Insomnia occurs from many different causes, and understanding them is the first step to avoiding it.
Age is, in general, a factor to consider when talking about insomnia, since older adults, compared to younger adults, have more problems falling asleep, more episodes of wakefulness and report less deep sleep. However, in the case of women there is another important reason that causes this loss of sleep.
Between 40 and 60% of women between the ages of 40 and 45 begin to report changes in their sleep pattern. This is because at that age the climacteric begins, a transition period between the reproductive and non-reproductive stages of women in which hormonal changes can cause insomnia.

With the progression of climacteric there is a desynchronization of the sleep-wake cycle, caused by the progressive decrease in the nocturnal peak of melatonin, a hormone produced by our brain that is responsible for marking the day and night rhythms of the body. When melatonin levels are altered, insomnia can appear.
What can I do to avoid insomnia?
Changing nighttime habits is the first step in treating this problem. Avoid stimuli such as watching television or checking the cell phone one hour before sleeping, not using the bedroom to carry out activities such as work or watching movies, creating a routine before sleeping and following it every day in the same order, and always waking up at the same time are some of the changes that can help prevent insomnia.
You can also treat it with extended-release melatonin. Consuming melatonin between 8 and 10 pm, in doses between 3 and 5 mg, can considerably improve the quality of sleep, especially in women going through the climacteric.
Sleeping poorly is not something we have to get used to, it is just a matter of finding the solution that works for you. Ask your doctor about Cronocaps the only extended release melatonin
