As many as one in ten women experience amenorrhea -- the absence of menstrual function in women who have not yet reached menopause -- in varying degrees of severity, at some point in their lives. But there is little information available on the subject.A Break in Your Cycle offers women guidance and information about a subject that is often difficult to discuss. Written by a woman who has suffered from this condition, and in consultation with medical experts, this book includes case histories, possible causes and effects, and treatment options from both traditional and alternative medicine. It discusses consequences, both physical and emotional. The concluding chapter looks at amenorrhea as a modern affliction enhanced by stressful lives.
