You could be experiencing unexplained weight gain, fatigue, mood swings, loss of libido, fibroids, tender or lumpy breasts, endometriosis, PMS, infertility, memory loss, migraines, very heavy or light periods, cold hands and feet, or a combination of these symptoms. You may have been told they're nothing, or stress, or menopause—and then offered surgery, antidepressants, or prescription hormones.

But the startling truth is that you may be suffering from premenopause syndrome, and there are simple, safe solutions. When John Lee wrote the groundbreaking What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause, younger women started asking if natural progesterone could help them too. With women's health expert Jesse Hanley, MD, Dr. Lee now brings you a revolutionary, nonprescription "Balance Program" to restore your gynecological health, energy, and sex drive. Learn how to slow the aging process before menopause and beyond.

Publication: 1999.

Really helped me June 10, 2015
Reviewer: Chrissy from Harrisburg, PA United States  
I read this book because my Neurologist said my daily migraines were hormone related.  My OBGYN disagreed because I was on the Birth Control pill, which regulated my hormones.

This book was so educational, a little over my head at times but I learned A LOT!!  I learned that I was very Estrogen Dominant and I have now been off my BC pill for five months and have been taking a natural Progesterone Cream that Dr. Lee recommends in the book.  My periods had not been regular since 2010 (now 2015).  Within 2 months of stopping the BC pill and starting the Natural Progesterone Cream, my period became regular.  My migraines only come the week before my period, not every day like they used to.  

I am also now on a much better daily vitamin and calcium supplement that is more tailored to my needs based on Dr. Lee's recommendations in this book.  Even better, they are natural without any synthetic chemicals and are in vegetable capsules.  

I am so happy I read this book!
