Whatever they call it, for many women the area 'down there' is only half-familiar, its problems mysterious and hard to discuss. Within these pages, Dr. Marie Savard—one of America’s most trusted voices on women’s health—explains what’s what, what’s normal, and what to do when problems occur. It’s as if your sister or best friend were a doctor with all the time in the world to discuss symptoms and solutions. Combining the thoroughness ofDr. Susan Love’s Breast Book with the openness of Our Bodies, Ourselves, this book is destined to be a classic.

By addressing women directly and honestly, but with compassion and understanding, ABC News Medical Contributor Dr. Marie Savard reveals that there are no off-limits questions, no dark secrets of womanhood . . .
