Fast Facts: Menopause is a concise handbook designed to provide an overview of menopausal and postmenopausal health issues and their management.

Although effective therapies for symptoms are available, controversies surrounding some of the available treatments have made potential users wary. In the second edition of this succinct and practical text, two eminent specialists review, in detail, the causes and consequences of menopausal symptoms, and the options available to women today.

The text is evidence-based, drawing on the results of the most recent research to provide general practitioners, specialist nurses, gynaecologists and other healthcare professionals with an increased understanding of the physiological and psychological effects of the menopause and to contribute to more effective management.

Stages, effects and implications; Vasomotor function; Osteoporosis; Urogenital changes; Neurological symptoms; Sexuality; Symptom management; Types of hormone therapy; Side effects of hormone therapy; Endometrial bleeding with hormone therapy; Risks of hormone therapy; Tibolone; Alternatives to hormone therapy.

'This is a neat and compact aide-memoire that will not readily lose its worth...particularly helpful for specialist trainees in gynaecology, general practitioners and specialist nurses... I have no hesitation in recommending it.'. Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, 2007

'Refreshingly, the book does not take a partisan approach to hormone replacement therapy but offers a rational résumé of the options available. Written in a good style, the text flows sufficiently well to read at one sitting. Time is taken to describe symptoms carefully and systematically.' The Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care, 2007

'Of particular clinical value is the chapter dealing with the risks of hormone therapy... the authors clearly discuss the results of pivotal studies in the area. ... this book brings together much useful, authoritative information on menopause in an easy-to-read format'. Australian Doctor, 2006

'...a useful handbook for general practitioners, practice nurses, gynaecologists, family planning and well-women doctors and nurses, and others involved in women’s healthcare world-wide'. Journal of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health.
