Overview

      

The Secret Pleasures of Menopause is a groundbreaking book that is long overdue! Christiane Northrup, M.D., delivers a breakthrough message that will help millions and millions of perimenopausal and menopausal women just like you understand that at menopause . . . life has just begun! It is the beginning of a very exciting and fulfilling time, full of pleasure beyond your wildest dreams!

Dr. Northrup believes that it’s time for you to step forward and learn to enjoy the best years of your life! Even though studies show that menopause doesn’t decrease libido, ease of reaching orgasm, or sexual satisfaction, the majority of menopausal women aren’t experiencing the pleasure and sexual satisfaction that is their birthright. It is a long-held misconception that menopause signals “the beginning of the end,” and nothing could be further from the truth.

In this fascinating book, Dr. Northrup candidly guides you toward experiencing life after 50 as the most pleasurable time of your life!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

For many women, hormonal fluctuations accompanying menopause cause a variety of unpleasant, sometimes debilitating symptoms-hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, night sweats, forgetfulness, osteoporosis, and diminished sex drive. Yet the end of a woman's reproductive life can also be a time of "personal rebirth," an opportunity to "experience unlimited pleasure that creates vibrant physical and emotional health," writes Northrup (Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom; The Wisdom of Menopause). Her goal here is to demonstrate "how pleasure heals the body," and she argues that living life as a sexual, sensuous woman "will enhance every aspect of your health." Northrup offers a variety of techniques for cultivating pleasure: personal pampering, engaging in creative activities (repainting the bedroom; keeping a journal), letting go of the past, practicing forgiveness, and exploring the "Seven Secret Keys" that enhance sexuality and sensual pleasure. Not all women will appreciate Northrup's breezy girl-talk writing, and some may find the self-help techniques reminiscent of junior high. Recommended for comprehensive women's health collections.

    Christiane Northrup is like your best friend. She will tell you like it is. She has experienced what she is writing about and as a doctor she is more than qualified to teach others about the all phases of menopause.

    I have had the pleasure of meeting and hearing Dr. Northrup speak. I read this book and will be giving it to all of my friends. Everyone can get something out of the book.

    Single menopause gals read this book at your own risk!!!

    While I agree with Northrup's views on sex in general, her suggestions are often followed by, "If you have a partner," which as a single perimenopaual woman I find extremely hurtful and offensive. What she fails to recognise in this book is that the overall menopausal experience, and more specifically sex, is different for the single menopaual woman. Her suggestions, while well intentioned, mainly apply to women with partners, what little she does offer to the rest of us, is very limiting because, HELLO there's no intimacy behind them. If you are one of the lucky few that is happy to stay single and let that part of your life fall by the wayside, then congrats, but that's not all of us!!! And for you menopausal women who gripe about their partners, look at things from our POV: You all can look foward to the nice stuff that comes before and after. Single menopausal women don't get that, well except for the ones who have no reservations about picking up a different guy for every night of the week, LOL! Here again is another book about menopause that was written for one group of women -married or in LTRs, while unfairly ignoring the issues and concerns of single women. I get so tired of people like Doctor Northrup who write from such a narrow minded POV! Maybe if she wrote a book specifically for single menopaual women I might be more forgiving. I will say however that she is not the only person promoting this bigotry, almost all of the menopause books and materials I've read with the exception of two, write from the same viewpoint. It sucks and IMHO makes me feel excluded, left out, and less than because of what I don't have.

    Highly Recommended

    I really enjoyed reading this book because it was direct, straight to the point without being obnoxious or cheesy. I too am going through the "change of life" and do appreciate that I could just pick up this book and have most of my questions/reactions answered by someone who has gone through the process.
