Description

Timing is everything. Q. I was surprised to learn that natural menopause typically occurs between the ages of 40 and 58. That seems like a really wide time span.

First comes the overview: the beginnings of menopause, including why knowing if you’re actually in menopause can be so tricky; the stages of menopause and their typical duration; the role of hormones and the viability of hormone therapy; when and why to seek treatment, the risks involved, and a primer on pills, creams, patches, shots, and bioidenticals. Timing is everything.

It’s not your mother’s menopause. Some women live through it and never miss a beat. Others suffer so many symptoms— severe hot flashes, sleeplessness, mood swings—that they have trouble functioning. But what all women have in common is a need to know what to expect and how to understand this phase for its inherent promise: as a grand beginning to the second half of life. By poring over the latest research, interviewing doctors and scientists, attending conferences, and talking to other women, Pat Wingert and Barbara Kantrowitz offer the everything-you-need-to-know guide to menopause. IS IT HOT IN HERE? OR IS IT ME? is accessible, comprehensive, practical, reassuring, scientific, and written in the lively, smart voice of friends helping friends. First comes the overview: the beginnings of menopause, including why knowing if you’re actually in menopause can be so tricky; the stages of menopause and their typical duration; the role of hormones and the viability of hormone therapy; when and why to seek treatment, the risks involved, and a primer on pills, creams, patches, shots, and bioidenticals. Then, at the heart of the book, two essential sections: “What You’re Feeling Now,” which offers the relief of solid information on the symptoms of your menopausal life—hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings, bleeding, memory loss, and those inexplicable glitches in thinking that make you feel like a kid with ADD—plus the comfort of advice on what to do. And “Staying Healthy Forever,” a jam-packed guide to caring for your changing body: It begins by trusting your knowledge of yourself, then learning the things to do to ensure a long and healthy future, one in which you look your best and feel your best. No matter what your path through menopause, the experience is one of great change: and now for this great change, great help.

"Is it Hot in Here? Or is it me? The Complete Guide to Menopause" has three parts: "The Basics"; "What You're Feeling Now"; and "Staying Healthy Forever". The chapters in part one are called: "What's Happening?" and "The Hormone Question". The chapters in the second part are: "Hot Flashes"; "sleep"; "Sex"; "Bleeding"; "Aches and Pains"; "Moods and Emotions"; and "Thinking and Memory". Chapters in the last part include: "Bones"; "Eyes and Ears"; "Heart"; "Cancer"; "Diet and Exercise"; and "Looking Good". There are also two Appendices. The first appendix is organized by chapter and is filled with charts and graphs related to each chapter. The second appendix lists websites and books for further information on menopause. Each chapter in the book explains the subject and has a question and answer section.

"Is it Hot in Here? Or is it me? The Complete Guide to Menopause" is one of the best books on Menopause that I've read. I especially liked that fact that the authors emphasize the positive side of menopause saying it is not an ending, but a beginning and the fact that menopause is a natural process not a disease. I also liked the fact that each chapter had a list called "when to see the doctor". Each chapter is full of useful information and several of the chapters have charts or diary suggestions that can be very helpful. The book addresses the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy and alternatives to HRT. The diet and exercise section not only discusses what to eat and how much exercise to do but includes recipes and gives several exercises, with illustrations, to do. The question and answer section was very informative although there were a few times when I found there were questions that I had that weren't asked. The book also talks about which problems are caused by aging and not by Menopause. Much of the advise in the book is helpful but it's impossible to do everything the authors say when it comes to diet and exercising (who has time to exercise 30 - 60 minutes every single day?) The appendices were as useful as the rest of the book, especially the list of websites. And pay attention to the illustrations scattered throughout the book - many of them add a nice bit of humor to a sometimes serious subject.

"Is it Hot in Here? Or is it me? The Complete Guide to Menopause" is a great resource book on Menopause.

This book is written in such a basic way. It makes me think it is written at a grade school level. I was looking for something a little more substantial. I didn't learn anything I didn't already know. Very basic info.

Very basic and outdated. Publishing date on this is years ago when HRT was popular. Now that no HRT due to known dangers, much of the advice is ridiculous. I could find the same on the internet these days. I would not recommend purchasing.

This is a book that I highly recommend to anyone going through the rollercoaster of menopause/perimenopause. The format is similar to "What to Expect When you are Expecting". It has questions and then their answers. It is so refreshing to realize that there are other women suffering the same things and wondering about it too. There are lots of references in this book and it has been a very useful resource for me.

Just the facts, ma'am. Not trying to sell you on a supplement or diet or hormones, just the straight, medical truth about this phase of a woman's life. An enjoyable read, an excellent reference.
