Jen Gunter’s Featured Book

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Perimenopause * Hot flashes * Sleep disruption * Sex and libido * Depression and mood changes * Skin and hair issues * Outdated therapies * Breast health * Weight and muscle mass * Health maintenance screening * And much more!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.

Jen Gunter’s Other Book

The Vagina Bible: The vulva and the vagina — separating the myth from the medicine

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER

From Canadian OB/GYN, women’s health advocate and New York Times columnist Dr. Jen Gunter: The Vagina Bible is a comprehensive, accessible antidote to the maelstrom of misinformation around female sexual health, and the ultimate guide to everything a person needs to know about the vagina and vulva.

We are well into the twenty-first century and have access to more information than ever before, yet many people don’t know that a vagina is self-cleaning, condoms should be used with a lubricant, eating sugar doesn’t cause a yeast infection, and sex shouldn’t be painful. As a physician with twenty-five years of clinical experience, Dr. Jen Gunter is all too familiar with the fears, fallacies and misinformation that abound about vaginal health. On Twitter, she hilariously exposes unscientific wellness advice and debunks potentially harmful and stunningly unnecessary products from “vagina profiteers”. Dr. Gunter knows the questions women (and men) have about female sexual health, and in The Vagina Bible, she answers them all.

For:
  •  the sixteen-year-old trying to figure out tampons;
  •  the twenty-six-year-old wondering how to avoid a UTI;
  •  the thirty-six-year-old trans woman navigating her new anatomy;
  •  the forty-six-year-old worried about the changing appearance of her vulva;
  •  the fifty-six-year-old looking into the HPV vaccine for her daughter (and maybe herself);
  •  the sixty-six-year-old experiencing painful sex;

The Vagina Bible offers a repository of accurate information based on science and delivered with wit and wisdom. This is the fact-based, inclusive, and empowering guide you deserve to advocate for your own body.
