Millions of vulva owners suffer from sexual and pelvic pain, yet it is frequently misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. In Healing Painful Sex, Deborah Coady, MD and Nancy Fish use their combined professional expertise as a doctor and therapist who specialize in sexual pain to provide readers with an understanding of its many causes and how to treat them, from both a physical and psychological standpoint. Healing Painful Sex includes medical checklists, illustrations, vignettes based on interviews with patients and their healthcare professionals, treatment options, and guidance for moving forward after healing. Coady and Fish speak honestly and directly to sexual pain sufferers' experiences, helping them address the problem of chronic pain, understand and prevent misdiagnoses, define medical terms and conditions, and regain sexual joy. Comprehensive, multi-dimensional, and deeply insightful, this book offers the tools to successfully take on the many challenges of sexual pain and move toward a healthy, happy future.
