Product description

Highlighting how and why the concerns of lesbians are often overlooked during the "change of life," this book draws on lesbians' menopausal experiences to illustrate how menopause can be a time to rejoice, not despair. Hormone replacement therapy, health services, body image, and homophobia are some of the topics discussed in this illuminating guide that doctors, heterosexual, and homosexual women will learn from and enjoy.
