AUTHOR

I have been a writer all of my life and unlike most of my medical school colleagues, I usually preferred writing poetry to studying science. My senior college English professor challenged me to consider whether I was actually a writer not a doctor at heart, but as a former perfectionist (in recovery) I committed to doing both. Throughout the amazing years of practicing as a clinical Obstetrican/Gynecologist I never lost the sense of medicine being an art and found women and our miraculous bodies, hearts, and minds to be an endless source of fascination and artistic inspiration.

For years I took the edge off my need to write by creating employment contracts and protocols for my business (surprisingly more creative and artistic than you would think), writing journal articles, blog pieces, and always left time for some poetry. Still, I knew there was a voice that was developing a fresh idea that needed to be heard, and that a book would blossom when the time was right. What unique idea had all my years of living and loving as a woman, wife, doctor, friend and mother (combined with my 19 years of connecting with patients and hearing their most intimate secrets) learned that needed to be shared?

Several years ago I became completely fascinated with menopause, especially after having been hit in the face with it myself rather earlier than expected. I remember at age 46 sitting on the couch in my Practice Administrator’s office complaining that I felt like I had the flu but I didn’t have a fever, that I was hot and moody and irritable and wondered what kind of illness was going around. She looked at me with a sympathetic smile and said “honey, why don’t you check your hormones, I think you are going through menopause”. As crazy as it sounds, although I had already established myself as a menopause expert, it had not crossed my mind that this would actually happen to me. Sure enough, my ovaries had gone into retirement almost overnight.

“While my clinical experience along with the study results confirmed that most women in midlife are certainly struggling with these issues, and many are feeling sexless and disconnected, a much brighter possibility is revealed in which menopause can become the gateway to an even more vibrant, sexy and connected second half of life.”

With my clinical experience along with the study results confirmed that most women in midlife are certainly struggling with these issues, and many are feeling sexless and disconnected, a much brighter possibility is revealed in which menopause can become the gateway to an even more vibrant, sexy and connected half of life.
