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 late thirties is 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 diagnoses. 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.

It covers:
- Causes of early menopause and POI
- When, and how, to seek a diagnosis
- Medical and surgical menopause
- Hormonal and non-hormonal treatments
- Nutrition, Lifestyle & Self-care
- Fertility
- Sexual wellbeing, relationships and self-identity
- Early menopause, education and work

Inclusive, compassionate, and featuring FAQs, guidelines and further resources, this book is the only one you will ever need if you are facing the unique challenges of menopause and POI at a stage of life when you least expected it.
