A Woman’s Guide to Confronting, Diagnosing, and Treating Sexual Pain
Millions of women suffer from sexual and pelvic pain in America today, yet it is frequently misdiagnosed—or not diagnosed at all.
In Healing Painful Sex, Deborah Coady, MD and Nancy Fish use their combined professional expertise as a doctor and therapist who specialize in sexual pain to provide readers with an understanding of its many causes and how to treat them, from both a physical and psychological standpoint.
Because you deserve to experience sex without pain.
Organized into three parts—naming the problem, getting a diagnosis, and overcoming pain—Healing Painful Sex includes medical checklists, illustrations, vignettes based on interviews with women and their healthcare professionals, treatment options, and guidance for moving forward after healing. Coady and Fish speak honestly and directly to sexual pain sufferers’ experiences, helping them address the problem of chronic pain, understand and prevent misdiagnoses, define medical terms and conditions, and regain sexual joy. Comprehensive, multi-dimensional, and deeply insightful, Healing Painful Sex offers women the tools to successfully take on the many challenges of sexual pain and move toward a healthy, happy future.
Healing Painful Sex covers the following symptoms and conditions: Pelvic floor dysfunction, Vulvodynia, pudendal nerve pain, and clitorodynia, Pelvic organ problems, endometriosis, painful bladder, and irritable bowel, Skin disorders, such as lichen sclerosis, and hormonal, surgical, and post-cancer causes of sexual pain.
“Sexual pain loses its mystery in a book that comprehensively covers the myriad physical causes and treatments available to replace misiagnosis and improper treatment. For women, here is hope that cuts through the murkiness of vulvodynia to clear diagnosis for vulvar pain.” – Elizabeth G. Stewart, MD, author, The V Book
“This empowering book shatters myths, provides hope, and offers tangible help to countless women. Through their compassionate validation and expertise, Coady and Fish have broken the silence and begun the healing process for so many in need. Bravo!” – Heather Roppolo-Guidone, Director of Education, Endometriosis Foundation of America

Sometimes it seems like your own brain is out to get you—melting down in the middle of the grocery store, picking fights with your date, getting you addicted to something, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. You already told your brain firmly that it isn’t good to do these things. But your brain has a mind of its own. That’s where this book comes in.
With humor, patience, and lots of swearing, Dr. Faith shows you the science behind what’s going on in your skull and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life.
If you’re working to deal with old traumas, depression, anxiety, anger, grief, or addiction, or if you just want to have a more measured and chill response to situations you face all the time, this book can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together and get your life and brain back.
Does “getting kinky” make you blush? Does it sound dirty? Well, it’s not, says Dr. Natasha. Kinky is just another way to have more fun in bed – and what couple who has been together for a few years couldn’t benefit from that?
Dr. Natasha comes to the rescue by helping you and your partner get in touch with your kinky side – with instructions that are as simple as they are sizzling. Whether it’s writing messages on your underwear, finding new uses for ice cubes or learning a little racy role play, you’ll push the limits of your inhibitions to sample and savor new sexual delights.
The common denominator is that breathing new life into familiar sex will make your connection more loving and intense both inside and outside of the bedroom.
