Pregnancy Hormones May Cause Memory Problems
by Pauline Go
However, when women were given simple questionnaires to fill in their second and
third trimesters, they performed a lot worse. Also, women tend to get worried during
pregnancy if they will be able to function normally after giving birth. The phase of
memory loss actually lasts for quite some months even after pregnancy.

Pregnancy causes several psychological problems like low mood levels and anxiety
disorder. It is known to cause prenatal and postnatal depression. These conditions
may be affecting the memory in women during pregnancy also.

Hormones could be playing a big role in causing memory loss. While typically
hormones get regulated in the body for the safety of the mother and child, some
hormones when produced excessively in the body may not suit the brain cells. Higher
rate of sex hormones also have an effect on the neurons in the brain. Memory is a
brain function that usually takes place in the hippocampus and it is this region of the
brain that the scientists feel is adversely affected by the circulating hormones. Mood
swings and anxiety that extend after pregnancy in the form of post natal depression
also causes memory loss after pregnancy.

However, researchers agree that more research needs to be conducted in this field in
order to definitively find out what causes memory problems in pregnant women.
