It's not hysteria : everything you need to know about your reproductive health (but were never told) / Karen Tang, MD, MPH.


"An inclusive and essential guide to reproductive health--including period problems, pelvic pain, menopause, fertility, sexual health, vaginal and urinary conditions, and overall wellbeing -- from leading expert and fierce advocate Dr. Karen Tang. Did you know 1 in 3 women experience menstrual abnormalities or pelvic issues? Yet these conditions are overwhelmingly misunderstood, misdiagnosed, or dismissed. The root causes for these issues, such as PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, PMDD, or pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, don't receive the stream of funding for research and new treatments that other conditions do, despite the potential to affect up to half the population. Dr. Karen Tang is on a mission to transform how we engage with our bodies and our healthcare. It's Not Hysteria is a comprehensive guide to common conditions and potential treatment options, with practical tools such as symptom prompts and sample questions for your provider, to equip readers to take control of their gynecologic health. Reproductive healthcare, from abortion to gender-affirming care, is under siege. The onus continues to fall on patients to find and advocate for the care they need. In the face of uncertainty and misinformation, It's Not Hysteria is destined to become a new classic that educates and empowers women and those assigned female at birth"-- Provided by publisher.
