MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Women's Health Initiative study in the 1990s upended the conventional wisdom concerning hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women. Medical writer Baxter (Simon Fraser U.) and Prior (medicine, U. of British Columbia) trace the history of the estrogen-deficiency disease paradigm of menopause. Instead of the myth that estrogen is a female hormone that needs replenishing, these self-identified feminists advocate consideration of the complexities of what is `normal' and the use of progesterone among options to ease menopausal symptoms. Appendices include further information about perimenopause, 'the forgotten transition,' and menopause management." - SciTech Book News
"In this engaging book, Baxter (Simon Fraser Univ.) and Prior (Univ. of British Columbia) combine detailed explanations of women's reproductive endocrinology and physiology with deconstructions of social, medical, and cultural narratives about women's hormones. The result is an insightful survey of current and historical dogma, scientific research, and medical practices in women's health. . . . Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice
"The book is well written, clearly laid out, and understandable to an educated reader. It points out what we now know are inconsistencies and outright errors in the previously widely accepted prescription of estrogen to normal women during their transition to menopause....I think the book offers a significant amount of information for both physicians "treating" and women approaching menopause, from both an estrogen and progesterone perspective. I'm really glad I read it....I appreciated the clarification of terminology, the effort to demedicalize a natural process, and the confidence to look outside the box at commonly accepted doctrine surrounding what has been happening to women since the beginning of human life." - British Columbia Medical Journal
"The Estrogen Errors is an informative text written for providers and women that questions the hypothesis that estrogen is the deficient hormone during the perimenopause, and that this deficiency is responsible for the varied symptoms experienced by many woman during this transitional phase. Dr. Prior is an endocrinologist who clearly has studied and researched the topic thoroughly. " - Medpedia.com
