Publisher's Synopsis

Did you know that up to 90% of women experience menstrual abnormalities or pelvic problems in their lifetime? Yet these issues are overwhelmingly misunderstood, misdiagnosed, or dismissed. Conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, PMDD, or pelvic floor dysfunction, don't receive the stream of funding for research and new treatments that other conditions do, despite affecting up to half the population.

It's Not Hysteria shares critical knowledge that anyone impacted by these conditions desperately needs. Covering everything from the anatomy and reproductive health basics you wish you learned at school, to issues such as abnormal periods, PCOS, endometriosis, and fibroids, to more complex aspects of gynaecologic care like fertility, sexual health, and hysterectomies. Dr Tang's accessible advice empowers readers to take action and advocate for themselves with healthcare professionals.

At a turbulent time when global health, reproductive, and human rights are under siege, Dr Tang is determined to revolutionise how gynaecologic health and pelvic pain are treated by the medical community. This book will be part of the fight for the healthcare all people with uteruses deserve - healthcare that is intersectional, gender-affirming, validating and hopeful.
