Your Guy's Guide to Gynecology: A Reference for Men and Women

Bruce Bekkar, MD, and Udo Wahn, MD
Anthill Press

A “must-read” for all husbands, boyfriends, guys, and girls. Most men don’t understand women and don’t even know where to start to find out about them. Written by 2 board-certified practicing male gynecologists, this whimsical book provides informative and enlightening information about the mystery of a woman’s body. It covers a wide range of topics such as the female anatomy, sexuality, diseases, infections, hormones, menopause, premenstrual syndrome, abnormal test results, surgery, fertility, childbirth, and more. Each chapter begins and ends with a quiz to test your “Guy-Q” and is illustrated throughout with 3 helpful symbols: a doctor, a professor, and a “supportive guy.” The doctor symbol connotes important points; the professor, pertinent technical information; and the supportive guy, suggestions for helping a partner. Your Guy’s Guide to Gynecology is both informative and very funny. It can help couples better manage the health problems of women, which can make a relationship stronger than ever. This is the ultimate home improvement guide.
