Love Sex Again Book Review:

Are you missing the vibrant, exciting sex life you used to have? Do you avoid sex because it is uncomfortable? Or even painful? Are you faced with diabetes, heart disease, cancer, or another illness that makes sex more challenging? Have you lost interest in sex altogether? Are you ready to . . . love sex again? For millions of women in America, sex is not the pleasurable, fun activity it once was. For many, sex has become a low priority as they navigate marriage, motherhood, and work . . . not to mention chronic stress and lack of sleep. Throw in the natural fluctuations in hormone levels that all women experience—whether due to PMS or pregnancy or while postpartum or perimenopausal, and beyond—and it is not surprising that sex becomes, well, a little less sexy. Common gynecological problems can make sex uncomfortable, and medical issues can cause it to be downright painful. If you've been unwilling or afraid to talk to your doctor about your problems in the bedroom, or if you have asked your physician for help and want advice beyond "take a bubble bath" or "try a lubricant," then Love Sex Again is your guide to reclaiming the sex life you want . . . and deserve! Meet Lauren Streicher, the doctor who will change your life. Dr. Streicher, a leading women's sexual health expert, offers women the courage, vocabulary, and knowledge to identify and solve problems in the bedroom once and for all. In Love Sex Again, Dr. Streicher covers the full scope of issues regarding sexuality—from flagging libido to vaginal dryness to sex after menopause, and so much more. She cuts through the hearsay on the use of hormone replacement therapy and discusses which hormonal products women of all ages can and should use, and why. She explains why some women experience a complete loss of libido due to medication, birth control, or a cycle of painful sex that basically shuts down desire—and how to reverse this trend. She illustrates the possible sources of sexual discomfort—everything from skin disorders to endometriosis—and offers solutions on drugs and treatment that can stop the pain. And, for the first time, Dr. Streicher helps women who have endured medical issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer to reclaim sex as a part of their lives during and after treatment. Knowledge is always the best weapon—and Love Sex Again offers a wealth of it, along with a good dose of humor and plenty of encouragement, so that women of all ages can make having great sex a part of their lives forever.

This book is aimed at women readers experiencing unwanted pain with sex who: - Suffer with pain that has been difficult to diagnose - Are interested in resolving their pain - Want to enjoy pain-free sex - Desire more pleasure in their bodies, lives, and relationships - And are searching for ways to help themselves Coauthored by a women's health physical therapist and a sexuality educator, The Pleasure Prescription outlines an approach that many women may find counterintuitive: that their own sexual pleasure may be a pathway to overcoming pain. Research shows that decreasing pain allows for more pleasure; conversely, the stories highlighted in this book suggest that increasing pleasure can help diminish a woman's experience of sexual pain. The Pleasure Prescription is the culmination of more than fifty years of the authors' combined experiences with women in their respective practices. It includes case studies, diagrams, and the latest scientific research. Each chapter ends with "prescriptions" designed to guide readers through the healing process.

Unlatched Book Review:

Since the rise of artificial formula, we have turned a biological process into a never-ending controversy: A mother breastfeeding her three-year-old son on the cover of Time magazine sets off a firestorm. Facebook takes down photos of women nursing, citing the content as “offensive.” The pope weighs in, urging mothers to nurse their children in church or elsewhere “without thinking twice.” So how did we get here? What are the consequences of surrendering eons of human evolution for a mode of feeding so alien? Growing up, journalist Jennifer Grayson thought nothing of the fact that she was bottle-fed. But when she became a mother, Grayson considered the impact of missing out on this profound connection. Her book is a worldwide search for answers about the first, most fundamental experience of newborn life. From biblical times to eighteenth-century France, from modern-day Mongolia to inner-city Los Angeles—Unlatched uncovers astonishing cultural, corporate, political, and technological factors at the heart of our contemporary breastfeeding disconnection.

Menopocalypse Book Review:

“Perimenopause and menopause can be very difficult times for women, both physically and emotionally. This book empower[s] women with information and advice.” —Dr. Louise Newson, GP and menopause specialist, developer of My Menopause Doctor Discover new, effective remedies for menopause and perimenopause symptoms (migraines, hot flashes, mood swings, and more) in this powerful book, written by a fitness expert who experiences many—and shares her secret to thriving in good health. Includes a Bonus Training Guide with Strength Workouts for Women Over 40 At a time when menopause has become an urgent, necessary topic of public discussion, with the likes of Michelle Obama revealing their struggles for the first time on the internet, personal trainer Amanda Thebe shares the roadmap she uses to thrive during perimenopause and menopause in Menopocalypse. With funny, bold, and big-hearted writing that will be familiar to readers of Glennon Doyle, Amanda Thebe shares her menopause journey and what she learned along the way. Readers will come away from the book with: A better understanding of your own hormones and how they factor in menopause and your overall health; Confidence to speak your truth about your menopause symptoms to your doctor, other health professionals, your family, and friends; Advice for achieving optimal health during perimenopause and menopause by changing your diet, fitness routine, and more lifestyle factors. Amanda Thebe was working as a personal trainer and fitness coach when, at age 43, she began to experience debilitating exhaustion, dizziness, and depression. At the time, Thebe didn’t know it was all related to her hormones. The busy mother of two, who was used to climbing mountains and traveling the world, only knew she struggled to get out of bed. After several failed doctor’s appointments, Thebe saw her gynaecologist, who finally named the source of her struggles: perimenopause, the period of 5-10 years before menopause, when a woman’s fluctuating estrogen levels put her at risk of depression, anxiety, headaches, and more ailments related to female hormone health. Empowered by information, Thebe began her journey back to her former self, overhauling her approach to diet and exercise. In Menopocalypse, she explains how to deal with migraines, hot flashes, weight gain, exhaustion, poor sleep, vaginal dryness, and mood swings—offering tips that have worked for her and others. She shares information about hormone therapy. She even shares her own strength-training routine, complete with a suggested workout schedule, easy-to-follow instructions, and pictures of herself doing the exercises, so you can feel empowered, fit, and ready to tackle the day. Menopause isn’t fun, sexy, or cool, and a woman might spend one-third of her life in it—but that doesn’t mean women should suffer in silence without support. Let the outspoken and honest Amanda Thebe be your guide to surviving—and thriving—during menopocalypse.

Summary of Lauren F. Streicher's Sex Rx Book Review:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Because no one is talking about sexual health, 40 percent of your friends are likely to have experienced some sexual difficulty. Women rarely even talk to their sexual partner or husband about this topic because they are embarrassed and afraid of being perceived as not being sexy anymore. #2 There are three groups of women: those who enjoy a great deal of gratification from self-stimulation and/or partnered sex, those who have little or no pleasure in sexual activity, and those who are unable to have orgasms. #3 The truth is, once a medical barrier presents itself, women who never particularly enjoyed sex are often relieved to have a legitimate excuse to cross intercourse and sexual activity off their to-do list. #4 The pharmaceutical industry is now spending millions of dollars on marketing campaigns to encourage women to talk to their doctors about sexual dysfunction. This is not a bad thing, as women need to be able to discuss their sexual problems.
