Publisher's Summary

The Secret Pleasures of Menopause is a groundbreaking work that is long overdue! Christiane Northrup, M.D., delivers a breakthrough message that will help millions and millions of perimenopausal and menopausal women just like you understand that at menopause...life has just begun! It is the beginning of a very exciting and fulfilling time, full of pleasure beyond your wildest dreams! Dr. Northrup believes that it's time for you to step forward and learn to enjoy the best years of your life!

Even though studies show that menopause doesn't decrease libido, ease of reaching orgasm, or sexual satisfaction, the majority of menopausal women aren't experiencing the pleasure and sexual satisfaction that is their birthright. It is a long-held misconception that menopause signals "the beginning of the end", but nothing could be further from the truth. In this fascinating work, Dr. Northrup candidly guides you toward experiencing life after 50 as the most pleasurable time of your life!

Important Messages for all

If you could sum up The Secret Pleasures of Menopause in three words, what would they be?

Relief. Makes sense.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Pleasures of Menopause?

Menopause is not a sign of a woman's body in decline.

What does Christiane Northrup bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Christiane has a confidence that is expressed more clearly through her tone and word emphasis that really come across in the audio. Her voice is soothing, comforting and reassuring. I can really tell that she is down-to-earth and in touch with everyday concerns of women.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Great to hear, from an experienced doctor that is also a woman, that menopause is a normal process can be much better than what most people say it is. Thank God she says a lot of what goes through my own mind that, "God don't make junk!" Sorry if that is a Southern expression with bad grammar.

Liberating

I was introduced to Dr Northrup by a dear friend who was telling me about Bio Identical Hormones as an alternative for HRT for my wife.
The more I looked into this womans amazing work the more blown away I was by the wisdom, love and encouragement she uses in her delivery of the material.
I listened to this and then recommended it to my wife who is also wrapt in the content and the suggestions for seeking pleasure.
Although this is a book primarilly for women, I encourage men to read it as well because the more you know about the mystery of your woman the better your life with her will be.
Life without sex is no life at all. Life with amazing sex is a life lived to the fullest potential because the joy and bliss will flow to all other areas of your life as you awaken to the possibilities it offers.
Enjoy your liberation and embracing of the pleasures life has to offer

Ridiculous book

To me, this book was ridiculous. I chose this book because I was going through menopause and was searching for ways to manage the symptoms. This book is more or less only about sex.
It is very goofy and corny and nauseating. It was in no way helpful regarding how to manage menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats. And the resulting sleep deprivation and so much more.
This book was a complete waste of time.

Not informative at all

Had no specific information on supplements or, really quite frankly, anything other than the nitric acid levels in your body and having a positive attitude. Very disappointing. Would not recommend. Also be wary of an author who narrates her own books

Perfect blend of western medicine; alternative medicine; science; and wisdom

A personally challenging body of knowledge but good science and wisdom ... good for self reflection with good visualizations and resources.

Sappiness

I was looking for the science of menopause. This is a "hippy-trippy love yourself better and it will all be OK" book. I kept fastforwarding to see if she said anything new after the intro. Not much. Way too sappy for me.

Not for me

A disappointing choice and wish I had not wasted money on this and do not have to see it sat in my audible library
