Love Sex Again is an all-encompassing guide to women's sexual health from Dr. Lauren Streicher, a cutting-edge Gynecologist, and a regular on The Dr. Oz Show.
Ladies, what if one of America's leading sexual specialists and Gynecologist told you that she knew your body better than you did? What if she told you that she could fix the problems that are making your sex life less than perfect? More than 100 million women in America have problems in the bedroom, but don't have the courage to ask their doctors for help. These problems don't come from relationship issues, or the stresses of work and family. These are real, physical issues that are getting in the way of a vibrant, joyful sex life. Instead of getting the help they need, so many women make a silent deal with themselves: without fanfare, without discussion, they quietly give up on pleasure, or drastically compromise their expectations where sex is concerned. Sometimes women make this deal with themselves early on in their 20s or 30s; for other women, it doesn't hit until their 40s, 50s or later. Most women lack the vocabulary to talk about these issues with their doctors, not to mention the pharmaceutical aids that are readily available to men. But no longer.
Dr. Streicher will show women how to regain their libido, determine what their issues are, and learn to fix whatever is broken "down there." This much anticipated book will set women on a path to discovering (or rediscovering) deeply pleasurable, satisfying sex. She offers practical advice for real women of all ages—from childbearing to post-menopausal, and explains what a woman needs to know about her body, where she is in her life, and her relationships, and how it connects to a satisfying sex life.

This is one of those topics that you're supposed to talk about with a straight face, all the while trying to hold back from laughing. Because how could you not? Talking about sex and what goes on below the belt is one of the most taboo things in America. And it was so refreshing to see that Dr. Lauren Streicher knows this, and decided to embrace it, cracking jokes on every other page while simultaneously explaining (with detail) what exactly is going on. This isn't just a book for women, this is a book for EVERYONE. I'm a guy and I felt like I learned more reading this book than I ever did asking my own girlfriend what was going on. This is a must-read for anyone in a serious relationship, or someone who is looking to become more educated about why women do what they do in the bedroom, or why they're not as willing some nights and totally willing other nights. I learned that it has very little to do with me, the guy, and more to do with what's going on down there for them. Fascinating stuff.
This is an eye opener, touched on many details, easy for all to understand and get to the root of the problem, i would have given 5 stars but i am into alternative healing not western medicine with many side effects. i don" want to fix one problem and create another. but this book certainly cleared a mess of questions for me. thank you Lauren Streicher. i will recomend your book to all my friends.
A more medical treatment than most books on sexual topics for older and not so old adults, especialy women. An extensive resource listing at the end. Any sexually active female needs this book!
Well researched, Most current info I've researched to date!
don't buy it, other review is spamming advertisement for you to think the book is amazing.
