What is this affliction called Menopause and why does no one talk about it? Well, I wanted to scream about it! Menopause, aging, and women's change of life has been swept under the rug for too long—especially since we'd be the ones to vacuum it up. This humorous, humble, and horrific book takes you on my personal journey of Menopause and all its gory details. I hold nothing back and I'm determined to make Menopause a daily topic of conversation, or at least a conversation every now and then.
Colleen McIntosh punches below the belt with Menopause: The Horror, Humility and Humor of it All. This unapologetic account of her personal journey from menarche through menopause is a balm of comic relief to the pain and puzzlement of life's changing seasons. As a men's health specialist I understand how isolating, painful and scary hormonal and sexual changes can be for men, so I applaud Colleen for sharing her experiences and engaging all of us in a much needed conversation. As a husband who has survived this phenomenon, I found comfort and closure in her revelations, and I highly recommend it to my brethren so they can better understand and support their better halves.

McIntosh’s Menopause is a truly honest instructional guide for surviving and thriving through menopause. This “personal account of my aging carcass” is peppered with hilarious one-liners, from her reference to menopausal hot flashes as the original climate change to her Latin breakdown of the word menopause. It might not make you ache for the day your hot flashes begin, but you certainly won’t feel alone once you get there.
