Hey girl, you thought you were done learning about your body after age 12? Well, your uterus and your ovaries disagree!

If there’s one thing I never thought I’d find adorable, it’s a uterus singing aboutheadaches, insomnia, memory loss and whiskers on your chin” to a tune that sounds like it should be crooned by Rizzo in Grease, but that was before I saw this insane/brilliant/hilarious video put together by menopause expert Ellen Dolgen.

Yes, it features a solo by your clitoris. Yes, it includes the line, “When it comes to fertility things can get hairy—not talkin’ ’bout your legs.” And, yes, there is a shout-out to Peri Gilpin who played Roz on Frasier. It’s the best thing you will watch today, I promise. Stick around for the end when they get to the good parts of menopause: “You can’t get pregnant if you don’t have a period, plus all the kids will be gone.” Maybe “PMS-squared” won’t be so bad after all.
