About this book

This unique book is structured to give the reader a comprehensive view to understand the decline of hormones at midlife and the risks and benefits of evidence based hormonal treatments. The difference between bio-identical and synthetic hormones is shown.

With this book the author intends to restore the trust of the mostly positive effects of hormone treatment during menopause. In this book effective hormone treatments that may be carried on for years are discussed. Those hormones may even prevent age related diseases (arthralgia, osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases) if started at the right time frame directly after menopause, known as "window of opportunity". 

This book fills a gap for medical health providers and can be of benefit for all women searching evidence-based information and answers on hormone menopausal changes and treatments. The book provides the reader with case histories to show how different women are at the menopausal transition, and what the doctor has to consider in the choice of investigation and treatment.

Dr Löfqvist has been a specialist in obstetrics and gynaecology for more than 30 years and worked in outpatient gynaecology for the last 25 years. She has treated thousands of women with hormones during their menopause. Studies in cognitive therapy have contributed to her multi-disciplinary approach on how to meet the patient. During the last 15 years she has written debate articles and published books on menopause and hormones, targeting the climacteric woman with complaints. Her books, the first written in Swedish and published 2019, and the second in German 2021, are primarily addressed to the climacteric woman with problems and questions arising during the menopausal transition. In her books she has combined evidence-based medicine with her own practical clinical experience.
