Breaking Beauty Podcast

Feb 12, 2020

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.
