WHY NOW? WHY ME?

Today, millions of women in their twenties and thirties, many of whom are just beginning to plan a family, are receiving the shocking news that their reproductive years are already over. They are in premature menopause — menopause years before its time. Whether due to an autoimmune disorder, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or the often undiagnosed condition known as Premature Ovarian Failure (POF), premature menopause is common, increasing — and almost always traumatic.

If you are one of the women experiencing early menopause, you have hundreds of questions, but have probably found few answers...until now. The Premature Menopause Book is the first book focusing on this difficult transition — written by a woman who faced the same questions: What can I do about it? Do I need hormones? How can I have a baby despite this condition? How can I feel like "me" again?

The Premature Menopause Book provides the latest information on health and emotional issues, explores all of your options, lists resources, websites and support groups, shares the experiences and advice of women going through this experience, answers frequently asked questions and offers the support and understanding you need.

Synopsis:

Petras, who has faced the problem of early menopause, lists hundreds of resources, Web sites, and support groups, and shares the advice of women going through the experience.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 385-392) and index.

About the Author

Kathryn Petras is the bestselling author of over twenty-one books in such diverse areas as popular reference, humor, careers and fiction. After years of suffering vague symptoms and discomfort, she finally was diagnosed with premature menopause at age 38. After this devastating diagnosis, she looked for books and support groups to help her through the tough times ahead — and was shocked to find that there was virtually nothing out there, even though this condition is increasingly common.

So she began researching and writing the book she wished she had when she first learned she was undergoing premature menopause. She co-founded an online support group and currently hosts two menopause groups on line as well as a website devoted to the condition. Kathryn is married and lives in New York City, and when not discussing the latest trends in menopause (which her friends and family say she manages to inject into almost any conversation) she enjoys reading mysteries, baking, and beachcombing at Montauk.
