Dr. Edelman says, “I wrote Menopause Matters: Your Guide to a Long and Healthy Life, to answer the questions my patients ask me in the office every day. It is a comprehensive guide to women’s health for those ages 35 to 65 and beyond. It covers sex, sleep, changes in moods and memory, heart health, bone health, strategies to lower the risk of cancer, and how to have a more productive visit with your doctor.
