Night sweats, hot flushes, anxiety, insomnia, exhaustion, itchy skin, low libido, painful sex ' Any of these sound familiar? Ninety per cent of women experience these symptoms some time between the ages of 40 and 60, but shhhhhh ' just suck it up, princess. And nobody mention the M word.

Recent research from the Nuffield Health group states that 13 million women in the UK are either peri- or post menopausal. Symptoms can last up to 15 years and 1 in 4 women will experience them as debilitating. Thanks to Dorothy Byrne's MacTaggart Lecture in August 2019 and the work of popular podcasters such as Jackie Lynch, the topic of menopause is breaking out of its taboo status in the UK, and The M Word is here to help.

World-renowned author and GP, Dr Ginni Mansberg, offers an informed, medical perspective on the facts of menopause in The M Word, uncovering the truth behind Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and ultimately giving you agency over your menopause journey.

Ginni outlines the medical science behind the menopause, explaining what happens at a cellular level in the body once key hormones begin to diminish; details the symptoms and experiences; then explores the pros and cons of various treatment options. All this is delivered with her customary good humour, sharing personal anecdotes along with evidence-based facts that will help women make informed choices about their health and well-being.

The M Word offers sound advice for women going through the menopause and presents them with a choice: what is the best solution for you? And how can The M Word help you thrive in this new stage of life?
