Brief Answer:
No effect on MS

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Initially it was thought that menopause worsens MS because menopausal women are often found to have been associated with other neurological diseases like Alzhiemers, dementia, etc however when a proper clinical study was done on progression of MS in post menopausal women there was no change seen.

Dont be worried, menopause will cause a further progression in MS

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
