The menopause transition affects different women in different ways, with symptoms ranging from mild to debilitating. This fact-filled workbook explains in simple language what happens during the perimenopausal years, highlights the long-term consequences of the menopause, and debunks the myths surrounding menopausal hormone treatment.

With spaces to write notes and keep track of symptoms, it is the ideal resource to help women have informed discussions with their doctors or nurses and choose how they want to manage their menopause transition.

"We are now beyond the HRT scaremongering of the early 2000s. Women need  facts and reassurance so that they can make informed decisions about HRT and maintain their quality of life around and beyond the menopause. Dr Briggs provides this information in an extremely clear, balanced and engaging book full of the relevant facts for decision making. All women near the menopause, and perhaps their GPs, should have a copy to enable them to make the correct choices."
Shaughn O’Brien, Professor in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Keele University School of Medicine, UK
