What an awesome tool for all of us women. I really wish I would have had this book right after my first child was born in 1998. I too am one of those women who lived in silence about what I realized was a real medical issue ""stress incontinence"". At first I didn't talk to my husband or my sister, who has had kids and is a nurse. However one year was long enough for me before I went to the doctor and started asking questions. I think for most women as I have found that one year is fast and it is usually 5-10. I can only hope with this book you can get some much needed answers to many women's health issues. Now as I near perimenopause I am finding this book to be of use to me in my present life. It really is for women of varying ages as we all go through things at different times and different stages of our lives. I love how they give you information on different medicines, list of questions to ask a doctor, and the drawings help with understanding it all, not to mention everything is in layman’s terms. Thanks for putting something together that was so well needed to answer all our questions about ""down there"".

It is rare that a medical topic can be put into laywomen's terms but Drs. Baum and Siddighi have done just that. They have described the most common conditions that affect millions of American women and provided advice for all those women so that they can make healthy decisions regarding problems in the pelvis.

Drs. Siddighi and Baum have nicely described cosmetic and plastic surgery ""down there"". The authors (with our help) have elegantly and tactfully described vaginal rejuvination and will help women understand this new form of cosmetic surgery.
