The Groundbreaking Guide Every Woman Needs

With The V Book, women will learn everything they need to know about the basics of vulvovaginal—or “V”-health, an essential yet often overlooked area of womens health. Dr. Elizabeth G. Stewart, the nations foremost expert in vulvovaginal care and sexual-pain disorders, answers the questions about the all too common “V” ailments that women are embarrassed to discuss even with their doctors.

Drawing upon the latest medical research and two decades of experience treating thousands of women in her specialized gynecological practice, Dr. Stewart has compiled a wealth of information and advice. This

• How your vulvovaginal concerns change throughout the life cycle, from your teens through menopause and beyond

• How to pick a good gynecologist, and how to ask the right questions

• Dos and donts of V hygiene—and why sometimes less is better

• The safest use of tampons, pads, and pantiliners

• How to handle common symptoms, such as redness, itching, dryness, and discharge

• Which medical tests you should insist upon from your doctor

• Tips for safe and pleasurable sex, and what to do when sexual intercourse is painful

• The latest research on vulvodynia, the vaginal pain syndrome that wont go away

• Diagnosing and treating yeast infections, allergies, and other ailments

• What to do if your doctor detects cancer or precancer cells

And much, much more...
