The Menopause Companion


A Beginner's Guide to Owning Your Transition, from Peri to Post

An indispensable primer on menopause that reads like advice from a close friend, co-written by a medical doctor and expert in reproductive health.

It’s one of the most important, least discussed events that happens for half the population. It’s a physiological and psychosocial event, a cultural construct, and a deeply personal experience all woven together in a jumbled knot. It’s menopause. But why is there so much mystery surrounding the topic? This accessible and to-the-point guide makes the entire landscape of menopause—not just the physiology—more transparent.
