Description

The only thing predictable about menopause is its unpredictability. Factor in widespread misinformation, a lack of research, and the culture of shame around women's bodies, and it's no wonder women are unsure what to expect during the menopause transition and beyond.



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 Gunter debunks misogynistic attitudes and challenges the
over-mystification of menopause to reveal everything you really need to know about: perimenopause, hot flashes, sleep disruption, sex and libido, depression and mood changes, skin and hair issues, outdated therapies, breast health, weight and muscle mass, health maintenance screening, and much more.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!

    Every woman should read this book. It addresses women's health at all ages but especially during and after menopause. It enumerates the health challenges women may face during and after menopause, including causes and potential treatments. It helps women understand what's a "normal" part of menopause and what should be investigated as a different medical condition. Most importantly, it debunks patriarchal ideas about menopause and encourages women to advocate for themselves and to seek treatment for troubling symptoms, if they desire, even if those symptoms are a "normal" part of menopause. It's an empowering book that erases a lot of confusion and helps women feel better and more confident about their bodies.

    Thanks, NetGalley,. for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    This was a really interesting book. I really enjoyed Dr. Gunter's writing. I am a little younger than the target audience, but it was nice to read so that I'm prepared. I did find it a little bit fact-heavy. There was so much just dumping of facts on the reader and not as much interpretation. It was a little hard for me to wade my way through. I think I might reread this in the future with the physical book and a pen so that I can notate questions and important things.
