From best-selling author of Making Friends with Anxiety and One Moment, One Morning comes a clear, comforting audiobook to guide you as your body changes through menopause.
Authored and voiced by Sarah Rayner with warmth and humor, this new edition of Making Friends with the Menopause has been updated to reflect the latest National Institute for Health and Care guidelines on diagnosis and management of menopause. Together with Dr. Patrick Fitzgerald, she explores why stopping menstruating causes such profound chemical changes in the body, leading us to react in a myriad of ways physically and mentally.
There is practical advice on hot flushes and night sweats, anxiety and mood swings, muscular aches and loss of libido, early-onset menopause, hysterectomy, and more, plus a simple explanation of each stage of the menopause so you'll know what to expect in the years before, during, and after. You’ll find details of the treatment options available and their pros and cons, together with insights from women keen to share their wisdom on a subject many still find hard to talk about.
Whether you’re worried about feeling invisible, weight gain, or loss of fertility, or you simply want to take care of yourself well, Making Friends with the Menopause will give you a greater understanding so you can enjoy your body and sexuality as you age.
