The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause
Dr Hannah Short and Dr Mandy Leonhardt
Support for every stage of your journey through early menopause and Premature Ovarian Insufficiency.
Finding out in your teenage years or early twenties that you are menopausal can be devastating; receiving the same diagnosis in your thirties can be overwhelming; learning that you are post-menopausal while undergoing fertility treatment in your early forties may leave you blind-sided. This is not the more natural, expected hormonal transition at mid-life that other, older women experience.
The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause offers a road-map to navigating the emotional and hormonal rollercoaster that accompanies these diagonses. Drawing on their own experiences and their clinical expertise, the authors bring together the latest research, insights and the voices of women themselves with a whole-body approach that prioritizes empowerment and health.
