This is an interesting and detailed book about one woman’s battle with the menopause, described through her experience and battle to be diagnosed and treated.
It is a very easy read and answers many of the questions women ask when going through the menopause. Some symptoms even I, as a 50-year-old woman, would not have related to the menopause.
This is a must read, not only for women but also for men, as it explains that it’s not only women who experience menopause but men suffer a comparable change.
It goes on to describe different ways of treating symptoms and how to access to these treatments.
Nurses of both sexes should read it as it gives details of what each sex can suffer as a result of menopause and will help them to understand and gain some knowledge of its effects.
The book includes anecdotes and interesting facts that will help readers to better understand the issues and realise they are not alone on their journey.
It would be an asset in a library for those who cannot afford to buy it or may be too embarrassed to do so.
