Overview

If you want to have a happy and healthy sex life, having a good understanding of your own body and making the most of your visits to your doctor's office are vitally important. Celebrated sex expert Dr. Ruth Westheimer teams up with prominent gynecologist Dr. Amos Grunebaum in this comprehensive and accessible guide to women's sexual health.

Combining the latest medical information from Dr. Amos with Dr. Ruth's reassuring and refreshingly candid style, this book gives you everything you need to take charge of your health. You'll learn all you ever wanted to know about your vagina and reproductive organs as well as your menstrual cycle. You'll find clear discussions of issues related to every stage of a woman's life, from planning or avoiding pregnancy to perimenopause and menopause. You'll learn what can go wrong including sexually transmitted diseases, cancer, endometriosis, and other conditions, and what to do about it. And you'll discover simple ways to spice up your sex life and enhance your sexual pleasure with your partner.

For many women, visits to the gynecologist can cause anxiety or embarrassment, so Dr. Ruth and Dr. Amos relieve the worry by explaining every step of a routine pelvic examination and Pap test. They show you how to partner with your doctor by being an active participant in your health care and treatment. You'll find out how to talk to your gynecologist, how to prepare for your appointment, and what questions to ask about what concerns you, whether it's about a puzzling symptom, diagnosis, or sexual matter. Throughout the book, stories from Dr. Amos's practice clearly show how you can safeguard and improve your health and your sex life by knowing about your body and communicating with your doctor effectively.

No matter what your age or living situation, Sexually Speaking is an invaluable, practical reference you will turn to for wise guidance.
