An up-to-date guide explaining the advantages and disadvantages of HRT for women who have experienced the menopause - whether it be natural or premature. Sadly, younger women - including teenagers - can have an early menopause, often for unknown reasons or due to surgery or cancer treatment. Women can also lack hormones for genetic reasons. Full of moving personal stories from women of all ages, this book describes the practical and emotional aspects of women's experiences and discusses the controversies surrounding the use of HRT in a sensible and reassuring manner. Some of the subjects covered include: what happens during the different types of menopause; HRT - what it is, how it works and the kinds available; osteoporosis, heart disease and breast cancer - understanding the risks; future therapies such as "designer" oestrogens; alternatives to HRT, including natural progesterone.
