    Yes, it most certainly does. Fluctuating hormones can definitely cause skipping heartbeats, racing heartbeats, heartbeats that can be felt all over the body and in the head. Heartbeats that will wake you up at night and cause you to get no sleep. Heartbeats that will do all kind of weird and strange things but, the craziest thing is most all doctors will look at you with a puzzled look on their face and tell you us all in your head that hormones could not possible cause all of this : ). Then they will offer you an antidepressant.

      I did want to add this....You asked if menopause could cause skipping heartbeats and the answer is yes, but I am not a doctor and I do not know what is the cause of your skipping heartbeats. You should always get heart problems checked out you by a doctor to rule out anything that could be serious.

    I am post menopausal and have had skipping heart beats. I recommend chelated magnesium it is the only thing that stopped my skipping heartbeats. I take 250 mg a day. I don't have the issue and I also cut out the caffeine. When I do indulge in too much caffeine I start to get the skipping back regardless of the magnesium. Someone on here recommended chelated magnesium and one of the best advice I was given.
