best selling books on menopause

After a point of time, every woman goes through menopause. This is a biological process that marks the end of your fertile years. You can consider your menopause to be official right after you complete a year since you’ve had your last menstrual cycle. As every woman’s body works differently, there is no specific timeline for menopause.

On a general note, however, your menopause can happen anytime between your 40s and 50s.  For most women, menopause marks one of the biggest transitions in their lives. This is the time, when you go through hormonal changes which are best perceived with mood swings, hot flashes,a sudden increase in weight, dryness around the vagina and many other symptoms. Owing to these mental and physical changes, this very process of transition seems to be incredibly challenging and difficult. And this perhaps the reason why you need to read the right books.

No matter wherever you are in the journey of menopause, these menopause books are going to provide you the necessary insights, information and advice about staying healthy and embracing this new phase of your life.
