In brief: Yes
In young women using lupron, (leuprolide) a drug that causes low estrogen and "medical menopause" one of the most common symptoms is memory loss.
These people can't remember their name. Menopause does occur mid life when memory is naturally declining so the two may overlap, but memory loss should prompt a female to think of hormonal deficiency.
