Resources for researching pre-menopause and perimenopause?

Does anyone know where to find good information on perimenopause and premenopausal symptoms? Ways to make it easier would be a bonus, but so far every site I find is selling something.

How about visiting your local library and asking a librarian? Failing that, perhaps call up your GYN office and ask if they can recommend some books.

Also you should just talk to your doctor, in addition to ask for book recomendations. He/she can give advice specific to your situation and history.

Response by poster: I might, but it's not actually for me. The woman I'm thinking of doesn't have insurance. I can still ask mine, though.

Um, take the homeopathic remedies suggested in the first link with a grain of salt.

Following on the second link in Moira's post, don't just use the encyclopedia in Pubmed. There are literally hundreds of helpful websites linked there too.
Here's a link to a search on perimenopause.
