In her review of the Estrogen Errors, Dr Fugate Woods brings insight from her long experience as a researcher into women's experiences of menstrual cycle symptoms and the menopausal transition, including endocrine, social and personal factors influencing symptoms. In her view, this book is "....a volume designed to stimulate thinking about the widespread use of estrogen therapy and simultaneous underuse of progesterone for managing symptoms during perimenopause." She notes " the medicalization of menopause emphasized the decresed production of estrogen and ignored the absence of progesterone as women cease ovulating."
