Praise for the Worst-Case Scenario Survival series 
 
“The scenarios owe a debt to action flick clichés—how often do you find yourself leaping from rooftop to rooftop?—but their utter implausibility doesn’t make this read any less riveting.” —People 
 
“What this book lacks in spiritual enlightenment, it more than makes up for with the practical advice you thought you’d never need.” —The Irish Times 
 
“There is something for everyone. It has a wide range of scenarios from dangerous to just downright irritating . . . It is fun, witty, entertaining and you learn something along the way too.” —Quill Quotes

The pain of vulvodynia can upend relationships and turn daily life into a nightmare. Then there is the stigma that vulvodynia carries.

In this book was written for you by practicing physicians, pelvic physiotherapists, and scientists with years of experience to smash the stigma and empower you with the knowledge you need to rid yourself of vulvar pain.
