The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Menopause

(3 customer reviews)


“Menopause is not a one woman job!” This ebook demystifies menopause.

Women are now spending a third of their lifespan menopausal, so you owe it to yourself to manage your menopause transition in an effective way as part of your everyday healthcare. This ebook will direct you to a layered approach to help reduce the impact of symptoms, and the long term consequences of hormonal decline. Plummeting levels of hormones and prolonged deficiencies, is one of the explanations for many long-term health conditions in women. Yet we are rarely diagnosed and supported in the right way through hormonal decline and beyond.

Each woman will reach menopause. It is an inevitable part of our lives. Our biology dictates that our periods begin at puberty and stop at menopause. How we get there is as unique as we are.

Whilst we tend to arrive at the point of meno-realisation one way or another, it takes us a while to join the dots. We then go hunting for information for further clarity. That’s when it gets confusing.  I spent hours on Google trying to understand what was happening to my mind and body. In addition the health concerns that can arise as a consequence of menopause, and beyond, are way more than I ever realised.

Perimenopause is the first peculiar thing to puzzle over. Is that part of menopause or a separate thing? How do you know if it’s peri or meno?

This ebook is designed to bring you the essential steps so you can make informed choices moving forward. You will not waste months or even years looking for answers, as the shortcuts are right here, right now. I also include examples of the decisions I took and some stories along the way.

The format is a .pdf and suitable to read across all devices.

Let’s end the confusion over all things menopausal and start to live the lives you deserve, full of knowledge and assurance as to what beckons in midlife and beyond. Pass it on.

    Omg i could not put this down. I have literally had my lightbulb moment when it comes to peri menopause and I am more than ready for volume 2 and facing it one step at a time. Thankyou fiona for such a wonderful book.

    October this year sees me celebrate my 73rd birthday! I have osteopenia and take beta blockers for atrial fibrillation – nothing too dramatic health-wise, nor impacting on my lifestyle too much. Ordinarily I don’t broadcast this, but on reading The Menopause Directory book, it got me thinking – big time.

    Around 53 (so 20 years ago), I visited my female doctor with what I thought might be menopausal symptoms. She told me that I’d just have to learn to cope with these. I felt uncomfortable in visiting her with this in the first place, now even more so. She didn’t want to put me on HRT, I hasten to add I was in agreement with that – dreadful thing HRT according to the press at the time. I soldered on, additionally managing flooding caused by a lemon-sized cyst on a fallopian tube, which was apparently menopausal. This was monitored with scans for 2 years, medical diagnosis being correct and thankfully nothing to worry about. My Mum had everything “osis” to do with her bones. So there was a good chance I would have something in that direction too – nobody thought about that one then!

    What an eye-opener reading TMD was! So much made sense. Possibly, had I taken HRT I may not now have osteopenia, (possibly leading to osteoporosis) nor atrial fibrillation, nor (and this is my diagnosis 😊 – beta blockers slow you/blood down) possibly would I have macula degeneration in both eyes.

    For reassurance and action, I urge any female approaching/in their 40s to read this little book, packed with facts (not scare-mongery) and such sound sense. How I wish we’d had TMD then. Well done and thank you!

    I’ve gone through my own meno-struggles, from severe depression, anxiety and heavy periods with unbearable cramps. Whether you are a novice about the menopause or you have done your own research, you’ll find topics in this e-book that will enrich and make your life more manageable. Let’s spread the word and stop whispering, but start the topic among men and women.
