Description

An indispensable primer on menopause that reads like advice from a close friend, co-written by a medical doctor and expert in women’s health.

It’s one of the most important, least discussed events that happens for half the population. It’s a physiological and psychosocial event, a cultural construct, and a deeply personal experience all woven together in a jumbled knot. It’s menopause. But why is there so much mystery surrounding the topic? This accessible and to-the-point guide makes the entire landscape of menopause—not just the physiology—more transparent.
 
If what you need is a level-headed friend to help walk you through the litany of fears to face, questions to ask, and practical decisions to make throughout your transition, this guidebook offers no-nonsense, straightforward, medically backed information about what to expect and what you can do about it. It offers: 
  • A refresher course on reproductive system anatomy, life cycle, and physiology—what are hormones, and how do they influence my body?
  • Information on how to recognize and what to do about common symptoms—when should I see a health practitioner and how do I talk to them?
  • Context for the history of menopause medically and culturally—what do scientists actually know and what are the major myths?
  • Advice on how to get ready, notice changes, and call in support—what is available to try in terms of products, tools, medications, holistic support, or self-care practices?

A very informative book on menopause. I appreciate the summary of the female reproductive system and how they affect our moods and body. It's filled with anecdotes and I like how it explains rather than lectures you. I don't think there are enough books out there on menopause and this one is welcome addition.

Thanks to the publisher for the arc.

This is a must-have resource for all women! It is full of great strategies, advice, and easy to implement ideas. This is one I'll return to again and again. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book.

The Menopause Companion : A Beginner's Guide to Owning Your Transition, from Peri to Post is a book full of helpful advice for women at this stage of life. There seems to be no end of books appearing on the subject at the moment (like buses, they all come at once !) but this one is accessible and easy to read and digest. It summarises the female reproductive system and how it affects us in various ways. There is lots of good information, advice and resources. Overall a very helpful book.

This is a great book for anyone approaching or going through Peri-menopause to understand what to expect.
I really liked that this book was very inclusive and felt that hopefully anybody who may experience the peri-menopause would feel comfortable reading this, to get a better understanding of what is to come.
I think it's so important that we know what is likely to happen, so we can assess what is normal and what we may need to get checked out by a medical professional.
This book is very accessible and easy to read and understand, which I think is key.
