With modern treatments and evidence-based knowledge, women shouldn’t have to suffer or “just about” manage the menopause.

‘The M Word’ is a complete one-stop guide that covers everything from understanding symptoms to managing relationships to which treatments really work. Discussing HRT as well as self-help and lifestyle tips.

This fully updated edition of the bestselling book includes new sections on:

  • Menopause and cancer
  • Menopause, strength and weight
  • Menopause and the brain
  • Less common menopause symptoms
  • An expanded section on HRT including discussion of the shortages

We’ll be hosting a live, interactive session on 4th July 2023, 8-9PM to discuss the book and highlight key learnings for practice, followed by a live Q&A with the author, Dr Philippa Kaye.

“I’ll be recommending this book to my patients – an eminently sensible and evidence-based guide for everyone to understand the menopause.”
