Does Ivana Trump want us to believe The Donald has super sperm?

One of the greatest things about being Twitter’s resident OB/GYN is people send me crazy news stories that overlap with reproductive health as they are breaking. More often than not it is a story about some bizarre thing one shouldn’t put in one’s vagina, but today’s treat was a little different. This morning Alexandra Svokos sent me a nugget …

Gwyneth Paltrow to feature doctor who thinks AIDS is a Big Pharma scam at In Goop Health

As today is World Aids Day I feel it is appropriate to point out that Gwyneth Paltrow and her crack team at GOOP are featuring Dr. Kelly Brogan, an AIDS denialist, as one of their medical experts at In GOOP Health 2018 in New York City. In 2014, so when HIV was well-known to be …

The troubling backstory behind the “O shot®”

I was recently sent YET ANOTHER puff piece on the “O shot®.” For those of you fortunate enough not to have space in your brain taken up rent free by the “O shot®” it is an injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the vagina and clitoris that claims to bring rocking orgasms to women. Honestly, …

No Addyi isn’t a good weight loss drug (it’s still not a good libido drug either)

It started when a doctor I had never met or heard of before sent me a message on Twitter wanting to partner up efforts to get the word out about Addyi (the drug flibanserin for women’s libido that essentially doesn’t work and is selling like a lead balloon).   First of all I was like, …

Science clearly says contraception is necessary for women’s health

The Federalist just published an anti-science, misogynistic screed on contraception. While this fact is not surprising it is shocking that this piece of propaganda was written by a physician. The articles makes quick work of belittling women: I wonder if the women using the #Fight4BirthControl hashtag understand how the contraception mandate works. Or how insurance works. …

Explaining “ninth month” abortions and feminism to the National Post (and everyone else)

  Rachael Harder, a Member of Parliament (MP) in Canada with a near perfect record voting against choice and abortion rights, was named as chair of the Committee on the Status of Women. The Liberal and NDP MPs on that committee left in protest. This action and the fact that the Liberal and NDP parties …

Dr. Sims built a lab and experimented on enslaved women. Take down his statues.

There are three statues of Dr. James Marion Sims on public display in the United States. Dr. Sims is known to some as the father of modern American gynecology for reportedly developing the first successful and reproducible surgical technique for vesicovaginal fistulas and for opening the first public hospital for women dedicated to repairing inuries …

The only thing feminist about GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow is the desire to be the female version of Infowars and Alex Jones

Gwyneth Paltrow recently claimed her detractors don’t do their homework and are afraid of empowered woman. She stated: “The difficulty is that you’re suggesting that people have autonomy over their health and some people love that and some people are like, ‘fuck you, just write me a prescription.'” she says of “challenging medicine as it …

No the eclipse didn’t mess with your menstrual cycle

Marie Claire published a total bullsh*t article today on how the solar eclipse probably messed with your menstrual cycle. The doctors they reached out to did not feel they could offer an opinion. Undaunted Marie Claire asked some women who felt they had more PMS (personal experience is not science), an “integrative nutrition specialist,” and …

GOOP’s misogynistic, mansplaining hit job

GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow have a case of GOOPitis, which according to Dr. Steve Gundry is due to my potty mouthed facts. Or tomato skins. Or something. I find it all very disjointed, inadequately researched, bloated, and mansplainy. I first saw this GOOP letter thing on the train back from a wonderful day in Manchester …
