A pessary is sort of like a brace or wrap you would wear for wobbly knee ligaments. It simply boosts your uterus back up and holds it there. Women have used them since biblical times, when they were made of smooth stone and potatoes. Thankfully, today's models are made of comfortable latex, plastic, or silicone. Pessaries are ideal for women with prolapse who are in between babies or when a woman simply doesn't have the time, money, or good health that surgery requires. If your doctor decides a pessary is right for you, she'll fit you right in her office. The best model is the one that you can insert and remove on your own, and it doesn't move around during any activity.More »

Interestingly, masturbation provides a host of health benefits for women. A recent study noted that masturbation is a natural sleep aid for many women. In addition, solo sex can often provide pain relief from menstrual cramps and sore joints. But perhaps the best reason for women to masturbate is simply that it leads to self-discovery. Because female orgasm is not as automatic as male orgasm, masturbation can help a woman learn about what works for her.More »

Some women claim that G-spot orgasms are even more powerful than clitoral ones. Unfortunately, the Grafenberg spot needs constant pressure and direct stimulation to effectively bring a woman to orgasm. And unless a woman is already aroused, it can be nearly impossible for her or her partner to find. This is why G-spot amplification or the G-shot was invented. This simple needle injection procedure is administered by doctor's who believe in it's efficacy. To do it, a doctor injects a bulking filler of collagen or hyaluronanic acid into the general area of the G-spot. The idea is that the bulking caused by the injection makes the G-spot bigger and easier for a woman and her partner to find.More »

Using a water based lubricant can help reduce irritation that can trigger a herpes episode. To know more about tripping herpes triggers, watch this informative video.

Once genital herpes is contracted it lives in the body forever-often lying dormant-but it can become activated by certain triggers. While everyone's triggers vary, there are some common experiences that make herpes flare-up in many people. For example, some find that the friction of sex irritates the genital skin and brings on symptoms. Using a water-based lubricant can help reduce this irritation, but DON'T use one that contains the spermacide nonoxynol-9. This ingredient can irritate mucous membranes, such as the lining of the vagina, making symptoms worse. In addition, some people find that hormonal changes, such as those that occur during the menstrual cycle, can trigger outbreaks. And one of the most universal causes of herpes flare-ups is a weakened immune system, like in people suffering from colds.More »

The G-shot costs between $1,200 and $1,800 and it is NOT covered by insurance. With a price tag like that, the obvious question is "Does it work?" In a word: doubtful. There aren't any clinical trials showing that G-spot augmentation works, nor is the procedure FDA-approved. And while injecting collagen into the human body isn't unprecedented - that doesn't mean that the procedure works to enhance sexual sensations in the genitalia. Much more important than the cost or the effectiveness is the issue of SAFETY. The medical profession has no idea if G-spot amplifications are safe, and all procedures, no matter how 'minor" carry the real potential for complications. So, until there is hard data showing the safety and efficacy of the G-shot, women would be wise to hold off on trying it.More »

In 2006, the FDA approved Gardasil, the first vaccine to protect against certain strains of the human papillomavirus, or HPV. Although there are over 100 strains of this virus, only about 40 are harmful. Gardasil protects against four specific strains of HPV, numbers 6 and 11, which cause 90 percent of genital warts cases, and numbers 16 and 18, which can lead to 70 percent of cervical cancers! Gardasil is approved for use in females between the ages of 9 and 26, although-since the virus is passed sexually-girls yet to have intercourse are the best candidates.More »

The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia and it takes about an hour. A surgeon uses a laser or scalpel to bring the fragments of a woman's hymen together, and then stitches them back together around the vaginal opening, leaving only the small opening associated with virginity. Hymenoplasty costs from $2,000 to $5,000 and only lasts until the hymen is broken again. Still, women continue asking for the procedure for both religious and nonreligious reasons. Some women cough up the money in the hopes of reviving their sex life, or surprising their partners in bed.More »

Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure that's performed under sedation, local or general anesthesia. During surgery, the vaginal lips are cut and remodeled using a scalpel, laser, or specialized scissors. Some women under-go clitoral hood reduction at the same time, which removes the folds of skin that shield the clitoris. Clitoral hood reduction allegedly increases arousal by making the clitoris more pronounced, but this has never been proved, and being close to the clitoris, is highly controversial as it may do more harm than good. The cost of labiaplasty ranges from $3,500 to as much as $10,000, and it is not covered by insurance. Three to five days recovery time is required before going back to work, and AT LEAST four weeks before having sex.More »

Although men can be carriers of Trichomoniasis, or trich, it's women who experience symptoms after contracting the disease. The first sign of Trichomoniasis is watery, bubbly discharge that may be greenish or yellowish. Both itching and pain that occurs during urination or sex can also be signs of trich in women. These unpleasant symptoms are often the most apparent immediately after you have a period. Like other STDs, trich is contracted by having genital-to-genital sex with a person who's infected. Interestingly, Trichomoniasis is particularly common in women who have sex with women.More »

Perineoplasty can restore the perineum to its proper size. The outpatient procedure is performed under sedation, local or general anesthetic, and involves making a small incision at the vaginal opening, through which the perineal tissue is sewn back together in the middle. A woman will need up to 6 weeks of recovery time, which means abstaining from: heavy lifting, tampon use, and sex. The bill for perineoplasty ranges from $3,000 to $5,000 and is usually covered by insurance. And when women eliminate problems like laxity during sex, air trapping in the vagina, and a general "open" feeling, they find the procedure is well worth the price!More »

Women who have sex with multiple partners or have symptoms of an STD should ask for annual testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia. If you test positive for either of these, it's also important to be screened for syphilis, hepatitis, and HIV. That's because having one sexually transmitted disease makes you much more susceptible to contracting another. And, of course, women should always see a doctor for testing should signs of an STD occur. These include unusual discharge and strange growths or ulcerations.More »

Women are generally interested in vaginal rejuvenation for one of three reasons. The first category includes procedures to fix recognized gynecological medical problems and is the most accepted and understood by doctors. If not for medical reasons, a woman may seek vaginal rejuvenation to improve the APPEARANCE of her below-the-belt region. For example, a woman may want to reduce or reshape her vaginal lips with labiaplasty. Or she may want to restore her hymen, the thin mucous membrane which partially covers the vagina at birth. The hymen is ruptured when a woman loses her virginity, so hymen restoration is typically sought by women from cultural backgrounds that mandate virginity on the wedding bed. Being primarily cosmetic or cultural, labiaplasty and hymenoplasty continue to spur debate. Complications are the same as for all cosmetic operations, and may include heavy bleeding, infection, numbness, chronic pain, and, being genital operations, negative impact on sexual function. The third motivation for vaginal rejuvenation surgery is to enhance SEXUAL GRATIFICATION. Examples of these controversial operations are G-spot augmentation, where collagen or other bulking filler is injected into the skin of the front wall of the vagina to temporarily enlarge the erotic Grafenberg -spot, and Clitoral un-hooding, where the normal folds overlying the clitoris are surgically removed, allegedly to improve clitoral sensations by literally removing the protective covering.More »
