Dr Louise Newson is one of the UK’s leading medical experts on menopause and perimenopause and has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of women and their families through her work. Louise has been described as the doctor ‘who kick started the menopause revolution.’
And now Louise has written the definitive, accessible and evidence-based guide to the perimenopause and menopause. It is the result of years of work in this field – combining not just her expert medical knowledge but the understanding and wisdom she has gained too.
The Definitive Guide to the Perimenopause and Menopause covers the key facts about hormones, their importance and their effects on our bodies. It explores family histories and their effects on menopause, the complete guide to HRT, libidos, mental and physical health, how menopause affects our careers and relationships and so much more.
Bring your questions on symptoms or treatments, and Louise will help you feel informed, empowered and confident about getting the best menopause care, regardless of age, background or health history.
