Summary

Menopausing is more than just a book, it’s a movement. An uprising.

Menopause affects every woman, and yet so many approach it with shame, fear, misinformation or silence.

Why is no one talking about this? Who has the correct information? And how can we get it?

That’s how this book has come about. We are going to tell you the truth, so you can make an informed decision about your life and your body…mic drop.

For too long, women have had to keep quiet about the menopause—its onset, its symptoms, its treatments—and what it means for us. Menopausing will build an empowered, supportive community to break this terrible silence once and for all. By exploring and explaining the science, debunking damaging myths, and smashing the taboos around the perimenopause and menopause, this book will equip women to make the most informed decisions about their health…and their lives.

Menopausing will also celebrate the sharing of stories, enabling women to feel less alone and more understood, and talk openly and positively about menopause.

  • No more scaremongering: just evidence-based info
  • No shame: real women, real menopause stories, real empathy, real community
  • Honest, no-holds-barred advice: Dry vagina? Zero sex drive? Hair loss? We’ve got it covered
  • The start of a movement: to get everyone talking about the menopause in every home, GP surgery and workspace

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Every UK GP should read this!

So much information that makes me feel normal and not a depressed hyperconcondriac (who can't spell!). Thank you for hope, the giggles and TMI along the way. Thank you to everyone involved in this book giving me the confidence to stand up for myself!

Life Changing. Literally.

Every lady's best friend has formed an elite team and written the Menopause Bible. If you have only the vaguest of notions that you're not your 'usual self' - maybe you're more tired/in pain/emotional/forgetful/murderous than normal - read or listen to this. Then give your GP a copy.
Thank you Davina 🙌❤

Excellent but ....

The book was good to listen to, but the actors voices where really annoying. Also the fact you kept saying go to your Gp, Get help and go to a Menopause clinic. Trust me I have tried and then to say go private it is £250 plus for the first appointment and then any tests etc are etc. We need more investment into this and at least we are speaking about it. I did offer to send this book to my boss but he already knows about it he goes thru it with his wife and me.

We need affordable treatment not silly money even Dr Naomi Potter charges huge amounts to see her,

Awesome! Massively empowering, informative, upbeat

and funny. I've so enjoyed listening to this book - it's moved me to tears as well as making me laugh out loud. Davina McCall has been candid about her own menopausing journey and Dr. Naomi Potter has explained the how/when/why of menopause. I've now ordered 3 hardback books for friends who I think will benefit from the knowledge. It's such a shame that our Mum's and Nan's didn't have this support and information. We can, however, make a difference to the females in our own lives. Thank you so much 💞

Fab resource!

Brilliant book. Incredibly informative. The science info and explanation of symptoms and treatment options is second to none and it was after watching the documentary that I pursued treatment and this has added to my knowledge.
The personal experiences are really interesting and add to the narrative but I did find the use of actors to provide the case study ‘voice’ was a little grating (mainly because of the questionable regional accents). I do understand that to get everyone of those people in a recording studio would have been impossible but I think it would have been better for the authors to read the case studies.
However, this is a minor gripe and perhaps triggered by the ‘Welsh’ accent.
Excellent resource that I am now listening to for the second time to check I have all of the info. Well done all involved.

A Must Read For Every Owner or Previous Owner of a Uterus

This book is a godsend and really helped me to better understand what I’m dealing with and how to meet it head on. It empowered me with information, dispelled myths, made me laugh, and I felt so seen listening to the Introduction that I cried. Davina and all of the narrators do a beautiful job of making this book feel much like a visit with a caring and witty friend. I have already recommended it to all of my friends over 38. 10/10! I know I will be going back to listen again as i continue on this journey.

I realized I was in perimenopause at 40. I’m 44 now and, with the encouragement of this book, just started HRT this week. There is hope. Love to all as you bloom into your Second Spring! Get. This. Book.
