Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, April 2005: What is perimenopause? What are hot flashes? Why can't I sleep at night? Is there sex after menopause? These are all questions too frequently heard from women who are leading up to and through menopause. As the authors learned, women aren't only looking for biological information; they also want to know perimenopause's relevance for, and impact on, their lives. Thankfully, women now have a resource to help "demystify the journey." Transitions, available in book, video and DVD formats, defines the terms of perimenopause and offers the most recent scientific findings on hormone therapy and menopausal women. Most important, it is based on women's own stories and concerns, and is written by women who have themselves made the journey.
