Long COVID and female hormones Factsheet

Long COVID affects women far more commonly than men, and women aged 40-60 are at the highest risk of being diagnosed with long COVID (although there’s no diagnostic or definitive test for long COVID). These findings are causing researchers to question if there’s a link with female hormones and long COVID. It’s worth noting that not only does there appear to be a link between long COVID and the peri/menopause, there are many women who are peri/menopausal (and have long COVID) who have never been offered treatment for their low hormones due to the peri/menopause.
