A reassuring book covering all aspects of the menopause and perimenopause by Britain's most popular media doctor
The menopause can be one of the hardest changes that a woman has to adapt to in her life - but it can also signal a new and positive beginning. Here in this frank and all-encompassing book, Dr Hilary Jones examines all the potential problems and dilemmas associated with this time. Amongst other topics, he discusses how physical symptoms such as osteoporosis can be alleviated; the benefits and side effects of HRT, providing easy tests to help readers decide if it would work for them; and the effects of the menopause on a woman's sexuality. With chapters also dedicated to the psychological issues that many women can find hard to deal with, A Change for the Better gives its readers all the information they need to cope with their menopausal years.
