Every Woman's Guide to Taking Charge of the Change

Did you know that the symptoms associated with menopause can begin fifteen years prior to its onset? During this seldom-recognized stage—called perimenopause—many women may experience hot flashes, mood swings, irregular menstrual cycles, sleeping disorders, and what some describe as "PMS all month." It doesn't have to be that way. Authors Nancy Lee Teaff, M.D., and Kim Wright Wiley offer real solutions in a reader-friendly style. Inside you'll learn everything you need to know about this important stage of life, including:

·What perimenopause is, how to diagnose it, and what it means to you

·The effectiveness of different medical treatments and natural alternatives

·How to create a healthy lifestyle through stress management, weight control, exercise, diet, and nutrition

·How perimenopause affects sexuality, fertility, and pregnancy

This book gives you the tools you need to stay healthy and feel good about yourself—before, during, and after the change.

About the Author

Nancy Lee Teaff, M.D., specializes in treating perimenopause, menopause, and infertility. She is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the Society of Reproductive Endocrinologists.
