Perimenopausal women are a growing segment of the population, and caring for them is consequently an increasing part of gynecologic practice. Moreover, this is a clinically dynamic and controversial area with ever-evolving knowledge of reproductive endocrinology, hormone replacement therapy, and alternative therapies. Management of the Perimenopause reviews physiologic and endocrinologic changes during perimenopause, management of specific problems, preventive clinical practice, and the use of alternative therapies. The book is an excellent candidate for bulk sales to pharmaceutical companies, given the many advances and controversies related to Hormone Replacement Therapy.
