The text is designed to be a no-nonsense, non-specialist's guide to menopause and perimenopause by its author, Dr. Ronald H. Amhauser, who serves as Director of the Division of Women's Reproductive Health at the University of Washington in Seattle. However, Dr. Amhauser has consulted to other publishers and currently serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology. ( https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jog.2017.12.018 )
This is a very comprehensive and well-written book that would be of great value to any clinic or clinical research center interested in how many women experience and cope with the menopausal transition.
The book is divided into four parts: a chapter each on menopause, perimenopause, hormone replacement therapy, and other treatment options. Part 1 begins with an overview of menopause and the physiology of the menstrual cycle. Part 2 is dedicated to the physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms related to menopause. The physiology of menstruation and the menstrual cycle is introduced in Part 3. The fourth part of the book is a chapter on hormone replacement therapy, the first chapter of which introduces a review of the physiology of hormone production and hormone receptor action. It also presents information on the various forms of hormone replacement therapy, including the effects of menopause on hormone levels and the roles of oral and transdermal estrogen as well as synthetic progestins on the uterus and cardiovascular system. The chapter then briefly reviews the use of this therapy for the treatment of menopause symptoms, osteoporosis, and coronary artery disease.
The textbook is written for the following audiences:
All practicing and non-practicing gynecologists and obstetrician-gynecologists and primary care providers
