Everything You Need To Know About The Menopause – by Kate Muir

Kate Muir has made a career out of fighting for peri-menopausal health to be taken seriously. Because… it’s actually far more serious than most people know.

What people usually know:

  • No more periods
  • Hot flushes
  • “I dunno, some annoying facial hairs maybe”

The reality encompasses a lot more, and Muir covers topics including:

  • Workplace struggles (completely unnecessary ones)
  • Changes to our sex life (not usually good ones, by default!)
  • Relationship between menopause and breast cancer
  • Relationship between menopause and Alzheimer’s

“Wait”, you say, “correlation is not causation, that last one’s just an age thing”, and that’d be true if it weren’t for the fact that receiving Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) or not is strongly correlated with avoiding Alzheimer’s or not.

The breast cancer thing is not to be downplayed either. Taking estrogen comes with a stated risk of breast cancer… But what they don’t tell you, is that for many people, not taking it comes with a higher risk of breast cancer (but that’s not the doctor’s problem, in that case). It’s one of those situations where fear of litigation can easily overrule good science.

This kind of thing, and much more, makes up a lot of the meat of this book.

Hormonal treatment for the menopause is often framed in the wider world as a whimsical luxury, not a serious matter of health…. If you’ve ever wondered whether you might want something different, something better, as part of your general menopause plan (you have a plan for this important stage of your life, right?), this is a powerful handbook for you.

Additionally, if (like many!) you justifiably fear your doctor may brush you off (or in the case of mood disorders, may try to satisfy you with antidepressants to treat the symptom, rather than HRT to treat the cause), this book will arm you as necessary to help you get what you need.
