You may know Dr. Jen Gunter from her no-B.S. New York Times columns, like My Vagina Is Terrific. Your Opinion About It Is Not”. Or, perhaps you follow her on social media, where her epic junk science take downs have earned her a reputation as Twitter’s Resident Gynecologist and GOOP’s #1 enemy. Dr. Gunter’s recently republished book, The Vagina Bible, answers common questions about tricky vagina symptoms and conditions, while her recent TED Talk “Why Can’t We Talk about Periods?” has racked up over 1 million views in just ten days. 

In today’s episode, Dr. Jen Gunter separates the myth from the medicine when it comes to vagina care 101, while delivering the real talk on vaginal rejuvenation, the effects of long-term birth control use and she even enlightens us on the language around “vagina” (because even that can be confusing!) Stay tuned to the end, when the good doctor answers our listeners’ questions, and we get her hot takes on GOOP criticisms and those headline-making, toxic-talc lawsuits.

부인과 의사이자 작가인 젠 건터는 "여러분의 몸이 어떻게 돌아가는지 알고자 하는것이 페미니즘적인 행동이라고 여겨져서는 안됩니다." 라고 말합니다. 이 새로운 토크를 통해 그녀는 월경에 대한 수치심이 어떻게 침묵을 이끌고 또한 억압하는지 설명합니다. 또한 그러한 수치심으로 인해 생리통에 대한 유해하고 잘못된 정보와 생리통을 다루는 잘못된 방법들이 알려진다고 이야기합니다. 월경에 대해 말하는 것이 금기시되는 시대는 지났다고 말하며, 그녀는 자궁의 불가사의한 메커니즘에 대한 이해를 돕기 위해 필요한 정보를 명료하게 설명합니다.

Dr. Jen Gunter is a Canadian-American OB/GYN and a pain medicine physician. Jen is commonly referred to as Twitter’s resident gynecologist, the Internet’s OB/GYN, and is one of the fiercest advocates for women’s health. Jen writes the New York Times columns "The Cycle" and "You Asked Jen Gunter." She hosts the popular TV show Jensplaining and she has written the bestselling books "The Preemie Primer" and "The Vagina Bible."

Chapter Description:

Question for you.

Let’s say you were scheduled to give birth to triplets, but they arrived prematurely, and one of them died during birth at the hospital …

In that painful situation, what would you do?

You’d search for answers!

You’d ask questions!

And if you’re Dr. Jen Gunter, you would recognize that, even to a doctor, the answers were confusing, misleading, and sometimes contradictory. So what did she do? Well, Jen wrote an entire book on premature babies called the The Preemie Primer. The book became popular and helped Jen develop a massive following to the point where she’s known today as Twitter’s OB/GYN.

Why?

Because she’s not afraid to give people the cold, hard truth.

Today Jen hosts the TV show Jensplaining and writes not one but two New York Times columns!

Jen recently wrote another book called The Vagina Bible which took off and has been climbing bestsellers lists.

Due to the success of her books Jen is often on promotion tours so I was able to catch up with her at the PenguinRandomHouse offices in Toronto when she came through town for TV shows and to give speeches.

Jen and I discuss how medicine became rooted in mansplaining, how to teach kids sex ed, and of course, her three most formative books.

Let’s go!

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

  • How do we break the cycle of “those who get bullied become bullies?”

  • How did Dr. Jen Gunter become known as Twitter’s OB/GYN?

  • How should parents teach their children sex ed?

  • How is the stigma surrounding STIs impacting rates of transmission and treatment?

  • When is shame a wasted emotion and when is it an appropriate emotion?

  • What are the key ingredients for good sex?
