Every day is a great day to focus on your health and wellness. But, as women, we are often overlooked and disregarded by the medical industry. Many idealized pictures of health are based on male biology, and centuries-old stereotypes and misinformation silence our voices, and opinions, and impede on our control over our bodies. Taking back the narrative are stunning examples of doctors writing books on women, for women. Here is a list of upcoming wellness releases by female doctors to look forward to!

Dr. Karen Tang’s inclusive guide to reproductive healthcare educates on commonly misunderstood, undiagnosed, and dismissed reproductive issues like endometriosis, ovarian cysts, PCOS, and much more. The overwhelming majority of women experience these complications, and yet, research and new treatments are not receiving the much-needed funding to be conducted. Dr. Tang provides detailed descriptions of the complications mentioned above, supplies readers with the terminology, confidence, and voice to ask their medical providers the right questions, and suggests potential treatments and aids. In a time when access to reproductive healthcare is threatened, delegating the power back to women through educational books such as this is becoming ever more critical. Available for purchase May 7th.

If you need authentic, genuine representation in the healthcare system, a helping hand in your journey, or are looking for ways to educate yourself about marginalized issues, be sure to keep these books on your radar!
