Edited by the trusted Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, this comprehensive guide to navigating life at and through menopause does more than describe and explain physical changes that occur during this life stage. Emotional, relational, and psychological concerns and challenges are also addressed with a balanced, whole-person perspective. Each topic includes empowering information and realistic suggestions for everything from exercise, to wrinkles to retirement. The book carefully explains what happens in the body during the menopausal transition, and how those changes as well as general aging affect one’s life. The discussion of hormonal treatment for the symptoms of menopause is handled carefully, and frames both the risks and benefits of hormone treatment so you can make an informed decision for yourself.
