Description - The Vulvodynia Survival Guide by Howard I. Glazer

Researchers and treatment experts draw on breakthrough new research to bring relief to women who suffer from vulvodynia, a poorly understood, often misdiagnosed, and inadequately treated medical disorder. Readers learn how to identify triggers, modify diet to reduce symptoms, reduce or eliminate debilitating pain, and begin to enjoy healthy sexual relations and normal daily activities. Defined as a constant or recurring vulvar discomfort, vulvodynia's symptoms include burning, itching, stinging, rawness, and painful sexual intercourse. The disorder can have a devastating impact on a woman's sex life, and its impact can be so debilitating that it makes it painful to sit or walk or take part in routine daily activities. The disorder remains poorly understood by the medical community; women with the disorder often suffer for years and seek help from an average of 5 to 7 doctors before they are correctly diagnosed. Even after a correct diagnosis, few doctors know how to treat the condition effectively. The Vulvoydynia Survival Guide brings millions of women a resource filled with accurate medical information and non-invasive self-help solutions that have been proven clinically effective in its treatment. The authors present breakthrough new results in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step format that gives readers access to all the support and information they need to identify triggers, modify their diet to reduce symptoms, find knowledgeable medical help, learn how to reduce or eliminate debilitating pain, and begin to enjoy healthy sexual relations and normal daily activities.
