Menopause is not a disease--it's a planned change, like puberty. And just like puberty, we should be educated on what's to come years in advance, rather than the current practice of leaving people on their own with bothersome symptoms and too much conflicting information. Knowing what is happening, why, and what to do about it is both empowering and reassuring.
Frank and funny, Dr. Jen debunks misogynistic attitudes and challenges the over-mystification of menopause to reveal everything you really need to know about:
• Hot flashes
• Sleep disruption
• Sex and libido
• Depression and mood changes
• Skin and hair issues
• Outdated therapies
• Breast health
• Weight and muscle mass
• Health maintenance screening
• And much more!
Filled with practical, reassuring information, this essential guide will revolutionize how women experience menopause--including how their lives can be even better for it!
