Is This Normal? by Dr. Jolene Brighten

 When discussing period pain or mood swings, hormonal imbalance or fertility issues, and all the “down there” concerns, vagina owners everywhere consistently ask their doctors one thing: Is this normal?

Whether it was from her patients or her hundreds of thousands of social media followers, Dr. Jolene Brighten has heard this simple question more times than she can count. With only eighteen states (yes, really) requiring medically accurate sexual education, it’s no wonder that so many have serious questions that need answers.

Is This Normal?, Dr. Brighten candidly shares what your sex-ed teacher should have said but didn’t. TMI isn’t a term in her world. She answers all those “lady parts” questions you’ve always wondered but might not have felt comfortable asking, including topics as wide-ranging as the menstrual cycle, postpartum health, libido, acne, the orgasm gap, and vaginal discharges. No topic is too gross, gooey, or OMG to be off-limits.

Featuring a twenty-eight-day plan to take back your cycle and dozens of charts, checklists, and diagrams that help keep it real while keeping you educated, Is This Normal? is the Our Bodies, Ourselves for the social media generation and women everywhere will benefit from this honest, easy-to-understand guide to their bodies.

My thoughts...
After reading this book and now rereading it again I can say there is not a better advocate for us women. This book has brought so much to light and helped me in so many ways.  Family Doctors just don't know what to do when you are sitting there telling them everything going on with your body. They don't have the answers. I don't want a Band-Aid  I want a solution to the problems. So take control of your life!
This Book, I mean women's Bible gives you so much information so many solutions you have to read it slowly and take lots of notes. Then reread it.
I gave Is This Normal? 5 stars and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
