Explanation of the Book:

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Perimenopause * Hot flashes * Sleep disruption * Sex and libido * Depression and mood changes * Skin and hair issues * Outdated therapies * Breast health * Weight and muscle mass * Health maintenance screening * And much more!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

Explanation of the Book:

#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.

Explanation of the Book:

“Perimenopause and menopause can be very difficult times for women, both physically and emotionally. This book empower[s] women with information and advice.” —Dr. Louise Newson, GP and menopause specialist, developer of My Menopause Doctor Discover new, effective remedies for menopause and perimenopause symptoms (migraines, hot flashes, mood swings, and more) in this powerful book, written by a fitness expert who experiences many—and shares her secret to thriving in good health. Includes a Bonus Training Guide with Strength Workouts for Women Over 40 At a time when menopause has become an urgent, necessary topic of public discussion, with the likes of Michelle Obama revealing their struggles for the first time on the internet, personal trainer Amanda Thebe shares the roadmap she uses to thrive during perimenopause and menopause in Menopocalypse. With funny, bold, and big-hearted writing that will be familiar to readers of Glennon Doyle, Amanda Thebe shares her menopause journey and what she learned along the way. Readers will come away from the book with: A better understanding of your own hormones and how they factor in menopause and your overall health; Confidence to speak your truth about your menopause symptoms to your doctor, other health professionals, your family, and friends; Advice for achieving optimal health during perimenopause and menopause by changing your diet, fitness routine, and more lifestyle factors. Amanda Thebe was working as a personal trainer and fitness coach when, at age 43, she began to experience debilitating exhaustion, dizziness, and depression. At the time, Thebe didn’t know it was all related to her hormones. The busy mother of two, who was used to climbing mountains and traveling the world, only knew she struggled to get out of bed. After several failed doctor’s appointments, Thebe saw her gynaecologist, who finally named the source of her struggles: perimenopause, the period of 5-10 years before menopause, when a woman’s fluctuating estrogen levels put her at risk of depression, anxiety, headaches, and more ailments related to female hormone health. Empowered by information, Thebe began her journey back to her former self, overhauling her approach to diet and exercise. In Menopocalypse, she explains how to deal with migraines, hot flashes, weight gain, exhaustion, poor sleep, vaginal dryness, and mood swings—offering tips that have worked for her and others. She shares information about hormone therapy. She even shares her own strength-training routine, complete with a suggested workout schedule, easy-to-follow instructions, and pictures of herself doing the exercises, so you can feel empowered, fit, and ready to tackle the day. Menopause isn’t fun, sexy, or cool, and a woman might spend one-third of her life in it—but that doesn’t mean women should suffer in silence without support. Let the outspoken and honest Amanda Thebe be your guide to surviving—and thriving—during menopocalypse.

Explanation of the Book:

"The menstrual cycle is a vital and vitalizing system in the female body and yet our understanding of and respect for this process is both limited and distorted. Few women really know about the physiology of their cycle. They are encouraged to ignore it and cope with menstruation as best they can without missing a beat, rather than seeing the cycle as an integral part of their health and wellbeing and, even more excitingly, as a potential guide to emotional and spiritual literacy. Wild Power is a book about feminine power the power of the menstrual cycle. An embodied consciousness that opens a woman to a unique force that can heal, restore love, guide her home to herself, and support the manifestation of her dreams, ambitions, and life calling. This book reveals the inner architecture of a woman and the path to power that is encoded in her body, which takes her on an initiatory journey from menarche to menopause. This unique force tutorsus in the sacred tasks of each phase of this journey, the perils and the pitfalls, as we grow into our authority and eldership as creators and leaders in the world. In this book, the authors explore the three maps of the menstrual cycle that guide women through their inner landscape to meet themselves, get to know their own nature and develop the psychological muscle to channel the creative and spiritual forces within them. Written in an engaging style, with humor, tenderness, and practicality, and packed with women s stories and quotes throughout, Wild Power is an invitation to a new consciousness born out of an awareness of and fidelity to the menstrual cycle, restoring women to wholeness and reinstating the full majesty and grace of the Feminine."--

Explanation of the Book:

“Many days I believe menopause is the new (if long overdue) frontier for the most compelling and necessary philosophy; Darcey Steinke is already there, blazing the way. This elegant, wise, fascinating, deeply moving book is an instant classic. I’m about to buy it for everyone I know.” —Maggie Nelson, author of The Argonauts A brave, brilliant, and unprecedented examination of menopause Menopause hit Darcey Steinke hard. First came hot flashes. Then insomnia. Then depression. As she struggled to express what was happening to her, she came up against a culture of silence. Throughout history, the natural physical transition of menopause has been viewed as something to deny, fear, and eradicate. Menstruation signals fertility and life, and childbirth is revered as the ultimate expression of womanhood. Menopause is seen as a harbinger of death. Some books Steinke found promoted hormone replacement therapy. Others encouraged acceptance. But Steinke longed to understand menopause in a more complex, spiritual, and intellectually engaged way. In Flash Count Diary, Steinke writes frankly about aspects of Menopause that have rarely been written about before. She explores the changing gender landscape that comes with reduced hormone levels, and lays bare the transformation of female desire and the realities of prejudice against older women. Weaving together her personal story with philosophy, science, art, and literature, Steinke reveals that in the seventeenth century, women who had hot flashes in front of others could be accused of being witches; that the model for Duchamp's famous Étant donnés was a post-reproductive woman; and that killer whales—one of the only other species on earth to undergo menopause—live long post-reproductive lives. Flash Count Diary, with its deep research, open play of ideas, and reverence for the female body, will change the way you think about menopause. It's a deeply feminist book—honest about the intimations of mortality that menopause brings while also arguing for the ascendancy, beauty, and power of the post-reproductive years.

Explanation of the Book:

A wry look at what the astonishing world of animal penises can tell us about how we use our own. The fallacy sold to many of us is that the penis signals dominance and power. But this wry and penetrating book reveals that in fact nature did not shape the penis--or the human attached to it--to have the upper...hand. Phallacy looks closely at some of nature's more remarkable examples of penises and the many lessons to learn from them. In tracing how we ended up positioning our nondescript penis as a pulsing, awe-inspiring shaft of all masculinity and human dominance, Phallacy also shows what can we do to put that penis back where it belongs. Emphasizing our human capacities for impulse control, Phallacy ultimately challenges the toxic message that the penis makes the man and the man can't control himself. With instructive illustrations of unusual genitalia and tales of animal mating rituals that will make you particularly happy you are not a bedbug, Phallacy shows where humans fit on the continuum from fun to fatal phalli and why the human penis is an implement for intimacy, not intimidation.

Explanation of the Book:

A compelling defense of hormone replacement therapy, exposing the faulty science behind its fall from prominence and empowering women to make informed decisions about their health. For years, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was hailed as a miracle. Study after study showed that HRT, if initiated at the onset of menopause, could ease symptoms ranging from hot flashes to memory loss; reduce the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer's, osteoporosis, and some cancers; and even extend a woman's overall life expectancy. But when a large study by the Women's Health Initiative announced results showing an uptick in breast cancer among women taking HRT, the winds shifted abruptly, and HRT, officially deemed a carcinogen, was abandoned. Now, sixteen years after HRT was left for dead, Dr. Bluming, a medical oncologist, and Dr. Tavris, a social psychologist, track its strange history and present a compelling case for its resurrection. They investigate what led the public -- and much of the medical establishment -- to accept the Women's Health Initiative's often exaggerated claims, while also providing a fuller picture of the science that supports HRT. A sobering and revelatory read, Estrogen Matters sets the record straight on this beneficial treatment and provides an empowering path to wellness for women everywhere.
