Voice changes

Now that I am beginning to realize that I have probably been in menopause for the past 8-9 months I am beginning to have questions about many of the things I have experienced in that time period....that I had thought were unrelated...but now I wonder if they were all connected to menopause.

But, one thing I have experienced and haven't seen mentioned is voice changing during this time.

My great-grandmother had a very odd, high-pitched, strained voiced when she aged. I have heard very few like it. Myself, my voice is kinda low for a woman. Over the years though I have lost my voice during colds and after sporting events...only in the past few months my voice actually "hurts" from doing something as simple as singing a hymn at church..or talking for any length of time. And this month when I got sick I lost my voice for nearly a week.

Are vocal chords affected by menopause. The reason I ask is that it seems hormones do affect them in puberty. Has anyone of you experienced a voice change of some sort during menopause?

Re: Voice changes

Naomi, Have you had your thyroid levels checked? These are hormonal as well. I have had problems with my voice (hoarsness and losing it) for several years and it was and is due to my thyroid. I have found that the thryroid problems and menopausal problems are sometimes intertwined. You should probably talk with your dr. about it.

Re: Voice changes

You might have something there...I have also had more problems with my heart going into A-Fib flutters lately which is also associated w/Thyroid levels. I will have that checked out. Thanks!
