I recently reviewed and was impressed a new book titled- “Menopause Matters” . Written by Julia Edelman, MD. – a practicing Gynecology specialist- it is a fount of knowledge even to me as a physician! If you want to understand menopause read this book! Menopause does impacts everyone and there are many aspects to this physiologic milestone. Any woman in tune with her body knows every aspect is related to so many others-hence it is no surprise that this authoritative book is over 350 pages. Read my review by clicking on link to NAMC.

It is worth the few minutes to read under Adult Medical Common Sense and refer to as needed.
