Support for every stage of your journey through early menopause and Primary Ovarian Insufficiency.
Finding out in your teenage years or early twenties that you are 'menopausal' can be devastating, and cannot be compared to the more natural, expected hormonal transition at mid-life. Receiving the same diagnosis in your late 30s is just as overwhelming; learning you are 'post-menopausal' while undergoing fertility treatment at the age of 42 can leave you blind-sided.
Drs Hannah Short and Mandy Leonhardt are GPs who not only specialise in treating hormonal imbalances and menopausal health, but also have first-hand experience of POI and early menopause. Their book, The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause, offers a road-map to navigating the emotional and hormonal rollercoaster that is a diagnosis of early menopause. It brings together the latest research and clinical advice, with a whole-body approach that prioritises empowerment and health, underpinned by the authors' compassion and empathy for where you are now.
Packed full of the most comprehensive and up-to-date information, The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause covers:
- Causes of early menopause and POI
- When, and how, to seek a diagnosis
- Hormonal and non-hormonal treatments
- Nutrition, Lifestyle & Self-care
- Sexual wellbeing, relationships and self-identity
- early menopause, education and work
With an emphasis on diversity and inclusion, and featuring numerous case studies, FAQs, guidelines and further resources, this book is the only one you will ever need if you are facing the unique challenges of menopause and POI diagnosis at a stage of life when you least expected, or wanted, it.
