Our Bodies, Ourselves: A New Edition for a New Era
With the wealth of information in the completely revised 2005 edition of this essential guide to women’s health, you will be able to make informed, confident decisions regarding your body. Our Bodies, Ourselves is known for its focus on sexuality, physiology, relationships, and the wider social contexts that affect good health and well-being—now including more on the dynamics of ethnicity, sexual orientation, and economic background. Its new edition includes not only updated research on women’s health, but also advice on how to navigate our complicated health care system, a discussion on gender identity, an updated food pyramid, ways to combine pleasure and safer sex, new research on breast-feeding, and resources for support after losing a pregnancy.
