Jen Gunter – Twitter’s Gynecologist
Dr. Jen Gunter is a board certified OB/GYN and pain medicine physician who understands it takes accurate information to be an empowered patient. After struggling to find quality health information online (and falling down some snake-oil infested rabbit holes) when her two children were critically ill, she vowed when her kids were a little healthier to do her best to clean up her little corner of the medical Internet. Her motto is, “Come for the sex stay for the science, come for the science stay for the sex.” She has two columns in the New York Times, The Cycle (approximately once a month) and You Asked (Thursdays, like clock work). Her writing has appeared in a range of publications including The New Republic, The Cut, The Hill, Self, The Guardian, and Chatelaine. Her first book, The Preemie Primer, was published in 2010 and her next book, The Vagina Bible, is slated for publication August, 2019. Dr. Gunter has been called Twitter’s Gynecologist by The Cut (NYMAG.com), “one of the most outspoken women’s health advocates in the country” (by WXXI, NPR affiliate Rochester, NY), and “strangely confident” by GOOP.com.
