DVD Verdict: In 'Let’s Talk Menopause,' host Dr. Tara Allmen provides viewers with the tools every woman needs to enter this phase of their lives triumphantly.

Therein lies the first lesson: Menopause is part of a process. Menopause refers to a specific point 12 months after a person’s last menstrual cycle.

Perimenopause, which can begin up to 10 years before menopause, is the transitional time during which most menopausal symptoms occur.

Perimenopause usually begins in a person’s 40s but can start as early as a person’s mid- to late 30s.

“During these years, most women will notice early menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, sleep disturbance, heart palpitations, poor memory and concentration, vaginal dryness and … depression,” Dr. Tara Allmen explains.

There’s no better time than now to get educated - an estimated 6,000 women reach menopause every day in the U.S., and by 2025, over 1 billion women in the world will be experiencing menopause.

In this one-hour documentary special, Dr. Allmen, alongside other women's health experts, explains common symptoms, health risks and therapeutic options.

Also, women share their first-hand experiences, personal journeys and successful strategies to effectively cope with perimenopause and menopause. “We can’t be afraid to talk about it; the more informed women are, the better their menopausal years will be," says Allmen.

It is not uncommon to feel grief about the menopausal transition. Allmen says that some of her group describe feeling “old” and struggle with their identity as women. “I try to help them work through the grieving process and work toward an acceptance of what is happening to their body,” she says. “It [the transition] does not change who they are, just how they see themselves.”

Allmen always reassures her group that even though the menopausal process may sometimes seem as if it will go on forever, the stage is temporary. “There is life after menopause,” she emphasizes. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
