The Misadventures of Me and My Uterus by Laurie WJN Review

Title: The Misadventures of Me and My Uterus
Author: Laurie WJN
Genre: Women's Health
Pages: 67
Price: $3.99 or FREE for Prime Members
Thoughts: A funny book with a strong message.

Book Synopsis:

From delivering babies to uterine biopsies, this book shares how being a woman can be tough, but laughter is always the best medicine. Topics ranging from Spring-Loaded Uterus (and other forms of birth control), Nothing says fun like a transvaginal ultrasound, and Ablation – its electric, share the personal struggle of one peri-menopausal woman through the maze of women’s health challenges. With humor and understanding, this book offers insight into the uniquely feminine perspective of women’s health care as you enter menopause. This laugh out loud memoir is relatable to any woman who has ever felt cursed by having a uterus.


This was an extremely funny, quick read that had a strong message. As women, we know and understand the extreme risks of breast cancer, but how often do we actually think about cancer that affects the uterus? It's scary, but we just don't take this type of cancer seriously. While I read this book to get a more eyeopening glimpse of menopause, I found the information on cancer to be interesting. I knew these types of cancers existed, but what shocked me was that they receive so little attention. Why are we not more focused on this type of cancer? I recommend this book to all women 30 and older. Yes, it's meant for those a bit older than that, but it's a great read that will open your eyes and force you to be more proactive in caring for your body.


  1. Being an older female. I have a weird funny bone. This sounds like a fun read that can give important info. Thanks.

  2. This one truly made me laugh out loud :)
