About The Menopause Manifesto: Own Your Health with Facts and Feminism
“The Menopause Manifesto is the definitive guide to navigating the menopause based on science, not fiction. Between The Vagina Bible and this book, Dr. Gunter takes the mystery out of women’s health and replaces it with evidence-informed concrete recommendations. Brava!” –Dr. Lori Brotto, Canada Research Chair in Women’s Sexual Health, Executive Director of the Women’s Health Research Institute
In her follow-up to the #1 bestseller The Vagina Bible, Dr. Jen Gunter, Canadian OB/GYN and the internet's most fearless advocate for women's health, brings us 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. 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. Knowing what is happening, why, and what to do about it is both empowering and reassuring.
Frank and funny, Dr. Jen debunks misogynistic attitudes and challenges the over-mystification of menopause to reveal everything you really need to know about:
Perimenopause * Hot flashes * Sleep disruption * Sex and libido * Depression and mood changes * Skin and hair issues * Outdated therapies * Breast health * Weight and muscle mass * Health maintenance screening * And much more!
Filled with practical tips, useful information, and startling insights, this essential guide will revolutionize how women experience menopause — and show them how their lives can be even better for it.
