Estrogen’s Storm Season

**UPDATE** - The 2017 Edition of Estrogen’s Storm Season is now available as an Ebook (in both Amazon Kindle and ePUB formats)! Please see below for purchase details. For those who have purchased or received earlier paperback editions, we have created an insert with updates that relates to CeMCOR’s unique but evidence-based view of the phases of perimenopause. Click here to view the insert.

This fiction book begins as eight frustrated midlife women—from all walks of life—meet Dr. Kailey Madrona, a woman specialist. All are in perimenopause, the long and chaotic transition to menopause. They are as different as women can be—yet they share the mysterious experiences of perimenopause, night sweats, flooding periods or mood swings. We follow these women as they consult Dr. Madrona, learn the surprising hormonal changes explaining their symptoms, get better or worse, and try or refuse therapies. As each woman lives through her particular challenge, we begin to see how we, too, can survive perimenopause!

Dr. Jerilynn Prior tells the story of women in perimenopause through a unique blend of storytelling and scientific fact. This innovative approach to helping women earned Estrogen's Storm Season a 2006 Independent publisher's book award in the Health category (see press release).

What others are saying about Estrogen's Storm Season:

"Estrogen's Storm Season provides perimenopausal women (and their healthcare providers) with brilliant insights and practical solutions to help them weather the rigors of this important life stage."

Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women's Body, Women's Wisdom

"Dr. Prior is a caring and cautious clinician, and at the same time a most innovative researcher. She wrestles with the questions that too many doctors ignore, and has saved a substantial number of women from--for example-- uneccessary hysterectomies. How does she do this? You must read and study this highly informative book to see. To those of you who experience extremely heavy bleeds--your search to overcome them gently begins right here."

Barbara Seaman, author of The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women: Exploding the Estrogen Myth and Co-founder of the National Women's Health Network

"Prior teaches the essential facts of perimenopause through stories instead of cold medical diagrams and jargon. In so doing, she proves that complicated medical facts and debates may resonate more with women if they are embedded first in women's actual lives. Estrogen's Storm Season is an engaging and thoughtful account of the various struggles some women may experience with perimenopause."

Kathleen O'Grady, Research Associate, Simone de Beauvoir Institute, Concordia University, Director of Communications for the Canadian Women's Health Network, Past editor of "A Friend Indeed", the newsletter for women in menopause and midlife (Women's Health Clinic) and co-author of Sweet Secrets: Stories of Menstruation
