In brief: Yes
Menopause does cause a decrease growth of hair in several spots-legs, armpits and even pubic.
Some women get a fine mustache and others get thinning of the hair on their head. This occurs along the temples and at the crown of the head.

In brief: Yes
Menopause also causes lower testosterone levels which affect your body hair.
Testosterone is produced in the ovaries (which are no longer working in menopause) & in the adrenal glands which slow down with age as well.
