This week, our guest is Dr. Jen Gunter, an OB/GYN and pain medicine physician. Gunter’s work, both as a clinician and a writer, is aimed at helping women understand and care for their bodies.  That includes countering the large amount of misinformation about women’s health. Gunter is the author of The Vagina Bible, The Menopause Manifesto, and most recently, Blood: The Science, Medicine, and Mythology of Menstruation.
