The physical changes that occur after women turn 40 are unavoidable - and can be unnerving. Menopause affects every aspect of life, from sex and sleep to mood and mental clarity to weight and body temperature. While there are a number of resources available, many are confusing and contradictory. Now, Manhattan gynecologist Dr. Tara Allmen, an experienced, nationally board-certified menopause practitioner and the recipient of the 2015 Doctor's Choice National Award for Obstetrics & Gynecology, shares her knowledge to help women be their happiest and healthiest and turn this challenging time into an exciting one.
Written in her effervescent yet assured voice, Menopause Confidential provides simple strategies and cutting-edge information on:
Hormonal changes and the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause
The health risks associated with midlife - from cutting through the conflicting opinions and advice about health screenings (do I really need a colonoscopy? How often should I get a mammogram?) to common medical conditions, such as osteoporosis
Various remedies, both allopathic and natural, to combat symptoms and empower women to make the best choices for their individual needs
Practical tips and resources for mitigating the effects of menopause
Fifty-one-year-old Dr. Allmen knows firsthand what women are going through and shares stories of her own personal travails and solutions. Women can't turn back the clock, but they can take control of their health and flourish in midlife. Menopause Confidential encourages them to be informed, be proactive, and be their greatest selves.

Read this book!
This is the first book I've reviewed. I did my research before deciding to read this particular book on menopause and women's health. I liked that Dr. Allmen is a practicing physician and has studied menopause specifically for many years. I had already been to several doctors about my premature menopause symptoms and was not happy with the options I was given. After reading this book, I decided to become an actual patient of Dr. Allmen. I thought the treatments she outlined in her book were based on extensive research and at times contradicted what other Gynecologists had told me in the past. It was refreshing to see that there are other treatment options out there for me. It's unfortunate though that most women I know are unaware of these options. I will be personally spreading the word! Lastly, I truly enjoyed Dr. Allmen's wit throughout the book. It was a great listen. I look forward to my upcoming appointment.

So many wonderful points in the story... Dr Allmen's ability to connect with us on a personal level and professional level with humor and fact shines throughout this program! What did I like best? Each of us will find a story in this book that resonates with us, Menofog, dementia, hotflashes, no rest for the weary !
What about Tara Allmen’s performance did you like?
Humor for sure...personal connective stories and professional facts make you happy you took the time to listen to this book!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It could be... but I listen to audiobooks during long runs so I wanted to preserve some chapters for later runs because it was so interesting, I was able to listen and run, learn and laugh at the same time.
