Into the Wild


For decades, millions of women have relied on Our Bodies, Ourselves to provide the most comprehensive, honest, and accurate information on women's health. Now, in Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause, the editors of the classic guide discuss the transition of menopause. With a preface by Vivian Pinn, M.D., the director of the Office of Research on Women's Health at the National Institutes of Health, Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause includes definitive information from the latest research and personal stories from a diverse group of women.

Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause provides an in-depth look at subjects such as hormone therapy and sexuality as well as proven strategies for coping with challenges like hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats. In clear, accessible language, the book dispels menopause myths and provides crucial information that women can use to take control of their own health and get the best care possible.

Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause is an essential resource for women who are experiencing -- or expecting -- menopause.

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...

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...

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.

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 c...

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...

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!
