Endometriosis, Painful Sex, and Other Taboo TopicsBook - 2020
In 2013 Parker received not only the diagnosis of endometriosis, but also of pelvic floor dysfunction, vulvodynia, vaginismus, and vulvar vestibulitis. Combined, these debilitating conditions have wreaked havoc on her life, causing excruciating pain throughout her body since she was fourteen years old. For years her doctors insisted she just had 'bad period cramps,' or implied her pain was psychological. She fought back against a medical community biased against women and discovered that the ignorance of many doctors about women's anatomy was damaging more than just her own life. Here she discusses coping with painful seizures while at the office, diet and wardrobe malfunctions when your vagina hurts all the time, and the depression and anxiety of feeling unloved.-- adapted from back cover
