The Hormone Diaries

The Bloody Truth About Our Periods

By Hannah Witton

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

After the success of her debut book, Doing It!, award-winning sex and relationships vlogger Hannah Witton is back with an honest and empowering new book about living with your period, and the hormones that affect people's daily lives.

An honest, funny and feminist take on living with your period (and hormones!), by the award-winning sex and relationships vlogger, and author of Doing It!, Hannah Witton.

When Hannah Witton started documenting her journey coming off the pill and re-getting her period, she wasn't anticipating the reaction, from people of all ages, that talking about it would bring. It exposed a glaring gap - the resources and the spaces to talk honestly about periods just aren't there. And with more and more research showing that your period and your hormones can affect literally every area of your life, this is a problem.

Inspired by her YouTube series of the same name, The Hormone Diaries draws on Hannah's own experiences and, through crowdsourcing on her social media platforms, those of her fans too. With her trademark honesty and humour, Hannah explores and demystifies topics surrounding periods, hormones and contraception, to offer readers support, information and advice.

The definitive period self-help book 50% of the world has been waiting for!
