The New Rules of Menopause: A Mayo Clinic Guide to Perimenopause and Beyond (Paperback)
Hot flashes, sleep problems, weight gain, perimenopause, menopause - none of this was covered in Sex Ed In fact, it's often not even covered in the doctor's office. This book steps in to fill that gaping hole as the definitive guide to the menopause transition, the midlife hormonal shift that sets off a cascade of physical and mental changes in women. Dr. Stephanie Faubion brings her expertise on current treatments and research together with an honest, real-world approach to help people understand how the rules of their bodies are changing - and what they can do about it. Divided into three main parts, the book guides readers through understanding menopause, managing it, and thriving in the years that follow. New and updated content acknowledges:
- The diverse menopause experiences of real women and includes historical perspective on menopause
- Discussion of the current "femtech" boom and how to be a savvy health care consumer
- Expanded information on understanding and managing perimenopause
