Description

'The essential hormone handbook . . . it should be made part of the core curriculum up and down the land' STYLIST

'A must read. Informative, funny, moving and wise' JESSIE BURTON

We've gotten better at talking about mental health, but we still shy away from discussing PERIODS , MISCARRIAGE , ENDOMETRIOSIS and MENOPAUSE . That results in a lack of vital understanding for women, particularly as those processes are inextricably connected to our mental health.

Combining her own experiences with extensive research and expert contributions, Eleanor Morgan explores the relationship between the female body, the female mind and the ways in which women's bodies are being medicalised.

HORMONAL explores everything from contraception to PMS, in relation to anxiety, depression and taboos about hysteria and the 'hormonal' woman. It is a compelling portrait of the modern landscape of women and health, showing us how to navigate stigma and misinformation.

'An essential guide in helping us truly understand our cores' VOGUE

'Both fascinating and a huge relief' GRAZIA
