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. 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. 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.

I was surprisingly impressed by this book. It is a comprehensive and inclusive education that I would recommend to anyone who received a less-than-stellar health education in school. The author, Dr. Jennifer Gunter, is precise, detailed, and unbiased when explaining conditions, symptoms, and phenomenon. One could read it from start to finish, or simply reference specific chapters (and there are 40+) if needed. I appreciated her humor and bullshit radar when it comes to menstrual/vaginal products, "natural" cures or therapies, and myths that have blinded women for centuries about their own bodies. She threw a few daggers at Gwyneth Paltrow, which I am so here for. I recommend the audiobook. Thanks, Dr. Gunter!

Highly recommended - Dr. Gunter does an impressive job of making medical non-fiction an enjoyable read. The care in which she refers to reputable studies for her facts (and critiques some studies as not thorough enough) makes the information contained in her book reliable and evidence based.

Lots of info, almost encyclopedic. It would be easier to own the book rather than reading straight through. Good all around reference with discussions on timely topics.
