It's Not Your Imagination
For some women, natural hormonal fluctuations create little stress or discomfort, while for many others hormonal changes can cause severe, chronic suffering. The simple truth is that nearly all women will experience a hormone-related illness at some point in their lives.
In this practical, solution-filled resource, women's health educator Gillian Ford empowers women by giving them the facts. "Listening to Your Hormones illustrates the pervasive role hormones play in women's lives and reveals how to form a successful partnership with a doctor to find treatments that work.

This book is amazing and well worth a read for any menopausal woman. There's very little support for menopausal women especially perimenopause. There are far reaching health implications when are hormones go down much more than just the end of our reproductive life. Oestrogen is involved in a huge amount of body systems. This book will blow your mind.
