Healing Painful Sex

A Woman’s Guide to Confronting, Diagnosing, and Treating Sexual Pain

by Deborah Coady, MD and Nancy Fish, MSW, MPH

Millions of women suffer from sexual and pelvic pain, 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.

Organized into three parts—naming the problem, getting a diagnosis, and overcoming pain—Healing Painful Sex includes medical checklists, illustrations, personal stories, treatment options, and guidance for moving forward after healing. Coady and Fish address the problem of chronic pain, how to understand and prevent misdiagnoses, define medical terms and conditions, and regain sexual joy.

Healing Painful Sex offers women the informative tools to successfully take on the many challenges of sexual pain and move past it.
