Dr. Nack does a great job of providing facts and information about STDs in a way that is easy to understand (not WebMD or doctor talk). I also liked how she talked about looking ahead and having a healthy future - complete with romantic relationships, marriage, and children.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with a chronic STD, then read this book first! It's based on research but not too academic. You feel like you know the women who share their stories, plus the author puts her money where her mouth is by telling you her own STD story. Even if you don't have an STD, this book will make you think twice before assuming that everyone with STDs is promiscuous.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
