The latest medical research on menopause, and an insight into the experience of some extraordinary Australian women.
In The Other Fact of Life, some of Australia's most dynamic women reveal their experience of menopause, alongside accessible up-to-date medical advice from the experts.
The authors, physiologist Associate Professor Lilian Stojanowska and women's health specialist Dr Robyn Craven, use interviews with well-known Australian women as a starting point to explore every aspect of what women experience at menopause. Both leading researchers in this area, they take a thorough look at the key health issues for women - from medical detail to more general health concerns and the social experience of menopause. The resulting guide gives vital information on symptoms and treatments, covering hormonal and mood changes, sexuality, and all the latest on Hormone Replacement Therapy, alternative therapies and dietary advice.
This medical information is enlivened by the personal stories of well-known women including Stephanie Alexander, Jeanne Pratt, Ita Buttrose, Joan Kirner and many more. Questioned about the challenges and triumphs of menopause, and the techniques they use to manage it, these women present a remarkable range of stories and experiences.
An insight into the lives of some extraordinary Australian women and an indispensable medical guide, The Other Fact of Life is a powerful new book.
