Publisher's Summary

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.

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. As Morgan argues, 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; by exploring women's bodies in conjunction with our minds, Morgan urges for new thinking about our health.

A must read for any woman

I was incredibly surprised at what an educational, relatable, yet thought provoking this book is. I highly recommend it to any woman. Initially I wanted to say to any modern woman but truth be told, all women must give it a listen. Thank you so much for sharing your story and experiences and for giving insight into the world from a woman’s point of view.
