Pulsatile Tinnitus is due to vascular abnormalities which are not directly related to Menopause. Hence no direct nor indirect link. Hope this helps.

Not everybody suffers the menopause. Some women find it a transitional phase that does not last very long with very mild symptoms. Others find it a lot more difficult and may have a few or many symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, tiredness, sleep and mood disturbances, skin or hair changes, sexual dysfunction, difficulty in concentration etc. You need to wait and see how you feel, but rest assured there is plenty of expertise and experienced specialists in menopause care who can help you if you need it.

Oestrogen and progesterone are the hormones that play an important role in a women's body. It is the fluctuating levels of these hormones that cause the physical and emotional symptoms of the menopause-such as hot flushes, night sweats, loss of libido and sometimes anxiety or mood swings. Oestrogen is the hormone that regulates the release of eggs from the ovaries. It has some other functions such as controlling bone formation and bone density, vagina dryness and skin temperature. It's important to remember that the menopause is not an event that happens (the date of the last period). Rather it comes in several phases, usually over several years. We have written a blog on the DoctorMatt.co.uk website that has a lot more information. You might find it useful to read this.
