This year approximately 60 million American women between the ages of thirty-nine and fifty-three will be perimenopausal. Nearly half will evidence clinical depression and anxiety disorders associated with the onset of perimenopause.
"The Fifth Decade" offers women and their families a lucid, accessible guide to the phases that define the turbulent years of perimenopause, as well as seasoned insight to navigate the intense, unpredictable emotional swings that define ‘The Change.’
