Summary

The internationally renowned, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Vagina Bible, Dr. Jen Gunter has been called "the world's most famous--and outspoken--gynecologist" (The Guardian), the internet's OB/GYN, and one of the fiercest advocates for women's health. Now, in The Menopause Manifesto, Dr. Jen Gunter 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. 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    Outdated therapies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, reassuring information, this essential guide will revolutionize how women experience menopause--including how their lives can be even better for it!
