Overview

The V Book: A Doctor's Guide to Complete Vulvovaginal Health by Elizabeth G. Stewart M.D.

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 women’s health. Dr. Elizabeth G. Stewart, the nation’s 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 comprehensive and authoritative guide for women of all ages includes:

• 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 don’ts 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 won’t 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...

This is a great book on everything a woman should know about that wonderful part of her body. Topics are well organized and explained in detail, using language easy to understand. After going to several different gynecologists, who are unaware of many female conditions, I almost want to send them each a copy of this publication. All woman should be knowledgeable about their body and became their best advocate for their own gynecological health! I only wish Dr. Stewart practiced in my area...

This is a great book for those who refer to the vulvovaginal area as 'down there'. Dr. Stewart writes a very interesting and practical book - almost an 'Owner's Manual'. I bought it to try to get to the bottom of a chronic V-itch I've had for too many years to count. Found out she has a practice north of Boston, so I went for a consult and for the first time ever, I got an answer! And, a cure!! She's awesome. Her book is well worth reading, even if you don't have any problems at the moment. I would recommend it to women of all ages.
