    1 thought on “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause”

    1. I originally got this book out of the library and liked it so much I decided to buy a copy for my own library. That automatically makes it a five star rating. The thing I like about this book is the tone. It talks about all aspects of being a woman going through menopause or approaching menopause. It doesn't talk like you're sick or suffering from a disease or like you're going to suffer and here's what to do. The book covers the facts about the physical processes in both 'natural' menopause and [...]

    2. As with the basic Our Bodies, Ourselves, that you need to own, every woman entering menopause should own this copy! Buy it BEFORE you start the pre-menopause stage so you can prepare yourself for that fun ride. Yikes

    3. i will want to own this one. i like the open mindedness and friendly approach. it does not treat the process as a medical condition that needs to be cured but a natural part of life, and then it helps you through the scary parts. sensible, straightforward, easy to read, modern.

    4. You can always count on the Boston Women's Health Book Collective to bring you good and solid information.

    5. I seriously wish I had read this before choosing surgical menopause. I would have almost certainly have made the choice I did, but I would have been much better prepared for the consequences.

    6. My two main thoughts after reading this: 1) This is such an important resource, and 2) I am stunned that this book was banned at one point (where/why/how long doesn’t really matter). All women and those who care about them can benefit from reading this. I feel mostly empowered—and yes, somewhat concerned—by the information contained herein. Concerned in that I am not convinced that I have the necessary social, physical, and financial resources to transition through menopause with grace whe [...]

    7. Ideally I would like my own copy of this, but finances are difficult at the moment, so I'll have to share with the rest of the library-using population. I didn't read it cover-to-cover but I did skim most of the sections, while reading more closely the parts that directly bear on my personal case. Lots of good information and advice; more than I can absorb in one sitting so I'm sure I will return to it before long.

    8. The 6th book I've read in the Our Bodies, Ourselves collection. So much information, demystification of menopause, political and patronization of women at this point in their lives. Filled with amazing information. Just like all of these books!

    9. A very empowering book on the subject of menopause. Well written and referenced, it goes a long way to dispel some of the myths that have grown up around the subject. Probably the most important thing I took from it was that the "propaganda" about menopause, the fact that society has tended to turn it into a disease, is what makes the menopausal transition difficult rather than the process itself. Warmly recommended.
