Own Your Health with Facts and Feminism
Just as she did in her groundbreaking bestseller The Vagina Bible, Dr. Jen Gunter, fearless advocate for women's health, brings you empowerment through knowledge by countering stubborn myths and misunderstandings about menopause with hard facts, real science, fascinating historical perspective, and expert advice.
The only thing predictable about menopause is its unpredictability. Not two experiences are the same. Factor in widespread misinformation, a lack of research, and the culture of shame around women's bodies, and it's no wonder women are unsure what to expect during the menopause transition and beyond.
Menopause is not a disease--it's a planned change, like puberty. And just like puberty, we should be educated on what's to come years in advance, rather than the current practice of leaving people on their own with bothersome symptoms and too much conflicting information.
Frank, funny, and filled with practical, reassuring information, The Menopause Manifesto debunks misogynistic attitudes and challenges the over-mystification of menopause to reveal everything you really need to know about:
• Hot flashes
• Sleep disruption
• Sex and libido
• Depression and mood changes
• Skin and hair issues
• Outdated therapies
• Breast health
• Weight and muscle mass
• And much more!
Undoing years of silence and cultural conditioning, this essential book will revolutionize how we experience menopause - including how our lives can be even better for it!
