Healing Painful Sex: A Woman’s Guide to Confronting, Diagnosing, and Treating Sexual Pain

Deborah Coady, Nancy Fish     
Berkeley, California:
Seal Press, 2011
389 pages

This book provides factual medical information about quality-of-life healthcare issues pertaining to the diagnosis and treatment of sexual pain—issues that are not spoken about nearly enough. Conditions frequently misunderstood by a healthcare provider or a patient are addressed, including vulvodynia, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, and pelvic pain. A listing of additional resources including books, websites, and organizations are also provided.

One strength of this book is the clear validation of medical conditions that cause pain with sex. There are additional discussions of individual patient situations and techniques that can be employed in order to overcome these healthcare issues.

The information is encouraging and insightful, and I think the majority of readers, including medical professionals and women suffering from painful sex, will find this book valuable.
