Publisher's Summary

Menopause and perimenopause are a serious subject - but I think humor helps! I have laughed at myself, and my family has laughed with me and not at me when I have had certain symptoms.

You can listen to my personal and very open account of what I have been going through, and how I’ve seen humor in even the most serious symptoms. I hope if nothing else besides getting the information will make you smile.

I believe in delivering information clearly and simply yet in a relatable way and not scary. Just like Mary Poppins sang.... A spoon full of sugar (humor) helps the medicine (information about a dry subject) go down in the most delightful (easily digestible) way!

It is time we openly talk about the dreaded M. word, or Menostart, as I like to call it! Get a better understanding of your hormones, and how they contribute to menopause and your overall health.

Talk to your spouse, children, and friends about your symptoms and go see your doctor. Learn what physical symptoms you could experience and how to manage them. Discover if menopause can affect your mental health. Uncover the secrets of surviving as a couple through the menopausal years. Get clear information about taking control of your diet and fitness and follow my 12-week Menostart program which includes lots of information about key foods to eat and avoid and supplements you could try.

You will have lots of options of exercises, from a simple 15-minute walk to HIIT to everything in between! Learn about hot flashes, weight gain, exhaustion, poor sleep, vaginal dryness, and mood swings - follow the tips that have worked for me and others Menopause isn’t pleasant or sexy, and as a woman, you might spend one-third of your life going through it! This doesn’t mean women should have to suffer in silence without support. Be candid and honest, and let me guide you on your journey.

Informative but slow to the point

Pace of narrator slow, useful for people who have done no prior reading or awareness of menopause

Eye Opener

This audiobook is great for anyone going through menopause. I personally believe that couples should also listen to this book. I am the Husband of a beautiful Nurse, and even though my Wife isn't at the age of menopause I found this audiobook to be very valuable. I have heard the stories from women that is going through it, or went through it, or she is reaching that age. This book has added so much value to my life going forward when encountering women that are going through menopause. I finally can now point those women in the right direction. The book talks about finding support groups, which is something I haven't thought about. Support groups are a great way to get you through menopause. Highly recommended

Such an informative book!

This book has so many helpful little tidbits! I'm creeping closer and closer to this part of life, and as much as I am totally okay getting older and I am looking forward to it all, I love to get ahead of things, and menopause is just one thing I'm trying to get ahead of. I feel a lot more confident moving into this time of life and am really glad I grabbed this one.

Wow, this book has so much great information to help any woman in a premenopausal state or going through menopause. The changes in our bodies are big and knowing how to cope, get through them and understand what's happening is going to make your life so much easier.

A must listen for all women

I was seeing some changes in my body and it wasn’t till a friend of mine, in casual conversation mentioned she was going through menopause. The lightbulb went off and I wondered if I was too. I started doing some research but there’s so much information out there I decided to try a couple of books on the subject.

I really enjoyed this listen. It was full of good information the author has done a lot of research and was very knowledgeable on the information she was giving. I also thought the narrator had a great tone and voice for the subject.

I bought this book for a friend of mine who had just started her phase of menopause and this audiobook really has helped her throughout this process. She said she has learned to cope with her insomnia which is the problem she has been suffering the most. In conclusion, I really recommend this book to any women that have menopause.

Mystery Solved! 👍

Phew! A heavy weight is off my chest. I have a confession to make. Lately when my wife started acting weird and having rollercoaster size mood swings, I successfully corralled her and took her to our family doctor. What we had suspected all along was given a stamp of authority, the routine tests were ordered for my wife and a piercing look was given to me (as if I was responsible for all this) along with a bunch of fatherly advice on how to take 'extra' care of my wife (as if I would not!). When I got this book for my wife, she was very happy and wanted to know if 'I was throwing the book at her'!! Jokes apart, this book is having a positive effect on my wife and I feel that she is better equipped now to cope with this natural but monumental change in her.

The author Yasmin A. has done an in-depth research on this taboo subject which invariably unfolds in every household of the world! The author along with the great narration of Dr. Michelle Carabache has created a masterpiece for every woman going through or about to go through this natural phenomena.

What I love about this book is, the Author:
- Explains everything in clear simple language,
- Puts her point across very well that both the Husband & the Wife are in this Together and that both should have respect for each other to cope with the this,
- Has put together lots of tricks & hacks to ease the burden and the 12 Week Program idea is great.
Very helpful book to tide over stressful times. Reading this book helps the lady, her spouse and everyone in the house to prepare themselves to meet the eventuality head-on and get the better of it. Thank You Yasmin!

My wife joins in me wholeheartedly recommending this book to every couple who are or would be going through this.

Great Information and Education on the topic

I listened to this audiobook, not for myself, but for those I love who have been through menopause or are going to be soon. I had no ideas about menopause prior to this audiobook, and now I feel that I can be better at supporting my loved ones who are in this stage of life.
If you are in need of direction during this trivial chapter of life. Then this is the audiobook for you! Get yours TODAY!

It has helped me to understand the future

Luckily, I’m yet to experience the menopause. However I want to fully informed about what the future holds. While scary, it is a natural part of every women’s life. I found the audiobook was packed with useful information on the subject. It was certainly food for thought!

Exactly what I needed

A truly great book. I've been very worried about menopause but having listened to this I feel a lot more knowledgeable and confident.

It dispelled a lot of the misinformation I had learned and is clear and concise. Very happy with this.

Exactly what doctor has ordered!

As a middle age girl, let’s face it - the time is here for me to experience the next big phase of my life as a female. Menopause is something that we never actually think or talk about until it’s reared its ugly head... I’m very grateful for this book, because it gave me so many answers to so many questions, and all in one place, alongside very useful advice on how to deal with the myriad of symptoms we are all troubled with...
The book is very well organised and narrated, the author really understands how challenging this time is for us as women and I’m extremely thankful for that!

Brilliant book on the subject!

I gave this audiobook to my mum and she loved it for many reasons. It is written in a style as if a friend would be speaking to you with real examples and she felt she was not alone but compassionately understood. It is very well researched, structured and narrated. It also provides solutions and suggestions. She found it very helpful at a emotional and physical level, just all that she needed. Highly recommended!

Interesting & helpful

More women need to talk about this topic. This is a natural process for all women and nothing to be ashamed about or hide. I bought this book for my mum as she has been complaining a lot about her symptoms, but she didn’t feel confident enough to talk to anyone properly about it. The author gives a lot of tips for dealing with hot flashes and insomnia which are her 2 main symptoms. I particularly found the tips about maintaining a good relationship with your spouse during the menopause years very interesting..
Their also is a step-by-step diet plan which I find great.. overall great book, hopefully it will help my mum.

Full of detail and real examples - loved it!

There is so much I just didn’t know about the menopause and this book really helped me not only in terms of understanding what is happening but why I felt the way I do and what to do about it. It also felt great to know all the little things that worry me are ok and that I am not alone. The honesty of the author made me feel like I was listening to a friend and the focus on communication was so helpful - the funny exchanges with family members the author describes were so familiar! This book is packed with detail and it covers everything I wanted to know (and lots I didn’t know I wanted to know). For me though, it was the practical steps on what to do about some of my symptoms that I loved and am trying out. So glad I have this book!
