So many important questions, so much convincing, confusing, contradictory misinformation! This book, written by a women's health expert, answers them all - and some. Whether you're a twenty-six-year-old worried that their labia are 'uncool' (they're not, BTW) or a sixty-six-year-old dealing with painful sex, this comprehensive guide is sure to become a lifelong trusted resource.
So many important questions, so much convincing, confusing, contradictory misinformation! In this age of click bait, pseudoscience, and celebrity-endorsed products, it's easy to be overwhelmed-whether it's websites, advice from well-meaning friends, uneducated partners, and even healthcare providers. So how do you separate facts from fiction?
Obstetrician Jen Gunter, an expert on women's health-and the internet's most popular go-to doc-comes to the rescue with a book that debunks the myths and educates and empowers women. From reproductive health to the impact of antibiotics and probiotics, and the latest trends, including vaginal steaming, vaginal marijuana products, and jade eggs, Gunter takes us on a factual, fun-filled journey. Discover the truth about the vaginal microbiome, how medicine fails women by dismissing symptoms, how diet impacts vaginal health and our favourite topic: the full glory of the clitoris and the 'myth' of the G-spot (plus so.much.more).
