9781559585798: Perimenopause - Preparing for the Change: A Guide to the Early Stages of Menopause and Beyond

The symptoms associated with menopause can begin fifteen years prior to the onset of menopause. During that early stage, called perimenopause, many women experience bewildering symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, irregular menstrual cycles, sleeping disorders, and what some describe as "PMS all month." Perimenopause has often been ignored in the past, and even the medical community is just becoming aware of its widespread presence in pre-menopausal women. Given that fact, it is wise to learn as much as possible about this process.

In a jargon-free, reader-friendly style, Perimenopause—Peparing for the Change discusses:

· What perimenopause is, when it occurs, how to diagnose it, and what it means
· Symptoms and solutions and natural versus medicated treatments
· Wellness: stress relief, weight control, excercise, diet, and nutrition
· Finding the right doctor and what to expect during an office visit
· Fertility and infertility
· Psychology, sexuality and perimenopause
· Talking with other women: support groups and how to tell if you need them
· The pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

In order to be proactive in your health care you need to educate yourself. Menopause may have once changed women. But, when informed, women can change menopause.
