On Sunday, November 17 at 5 pm we will review the book "The Vagina Bible" by Jen Gunter, MD.
So many important questions, so much convincing, confusing, contradictory misinformation! In this age of clickbait, 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? OB-GYN 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
Genital hygiene, lubricants, and hormone myths and fallacies
How diet impacts vaginal health
Stem cells and the vagina
Cosmetic vaginal surgery
What changes to expect during pregnancy, after childbirth, and through menopause
How medicine fails women by dismissing symptoms
…And so much more. Whether you’re a twenty-six-year-old worried that her labia are “uncool” or a sixty-six-year-old dealing with painful sex, The Vagina Bible is a comprehensive guide that is sure to become a lifelong trusted resource.
