Menopause: recommended titles

by Lucy Neill

Menopausing, by Davina McCall

Menopause affects every woman, and yet so many approach it with shame, fear, misinformation or silence. Why is no one talking about this? Who has the correct information? And how can we get it? That's how this book has come about. We are going to tell you the truth, so you can make an informed decision about your life and your body. For too long, women have had to keep quiet about the menopause - its onset, its symptoms, its treatments - and what it means for us.

'Menopausing' will build an empowered, supportive community to break this terrible silence once and for all. By exploring and explaining the science, debunking damaging myths, and smashing the taboos around the perimenopause and menopause, this book will equip women to make the most informed decisions about their health - and their lives.
