The Little Book of Menopause Expanded Edition
Item #: TLBOM-ExEd
Considerable confusion exists among women and their care providers regarding the biology of the menopause. Once considered a one-year problem for some women, menopause is now recognized as starting in the 40s, and for some, extending into the 70s. As such, in the past decade, this important field of women’s health has emerged as factual, structured, and formal. Why do these menopausal symptoms appear? How long do they last? What is their impact on personal lifestyle and business economics? And what safe measures can be employed to modify them? In recent years scientists have contributed significant information as to the etiologies of hot flashes, mood swings, memory loss, vaginal dryness, loss of libido, bone and heart health. Yet so little of this information is known to care providers who daily must care for these challenged women as the U.S. population ages. The Little Book of Menopause addresses the role of inflammation as the underlying cause of most of the menopause symptoms, the biologic impact that loss of estrogen plays in this process, and the role that hormone replacement serves to reduce these symptoms. Care providers in women’s health now have a responsibility to embrace care of menopausal women with the same level of professionalism as they apply to obstetrics and gynecology of younger women. Our understanding of the biology of menopause now makes both possible. Moreover, women receiving gynecologic care, by becoming more educated about menopause, can engage with their care providers in a meaningful conversation.
The Little Book of Menopause Living with the Challenges of Breast Cancer
Item #: TLBOM-BC
By Woods, Warner, Bonham. Description: Becoming a breast cancer survivor often involves menopause. Yet, every woman experiencing breast cancer care that is complicated by menopausal symptoms only wants to feel normal. She asks how to be treated for menopausal symptoms. She also may be haunted by concerns about the psychology of living with breast cancer, the role of her partner, her response to lymphedema and cognitive impairment (chemobrain), her need for exercise, and the challenge of sleep. Or, she may want clarification of how to preserve her reproductive capabilities during treatments, risks of a pregnancy after breast cancer, and whether breastfeeding is possible. Fortunately, new insights into these cancer-related questions allow gynecologists to understand these concerns and serve as part of the cancer-care team. We hope that care providers will find this Little Book contribution to the breast cancer literature a useful resource for their office and for their patients.
