Stephanie Prima with a heartfelt review of NeuEve

Holistic health mentor Stephanie Prima recently wrote about a heartfelt topic: her personal sexual health and how NeuEve has helped. NeuEve is nothing short of brilliant! Here's more: "I’m creating this post to be as open and honest as I possibly can be about a topic that I have never yet heard anyone talk about. Doctors don’t even have a viable solution for this condition. So it’s scary to make myself this vulnerable. But I trust that my words will once again inspire others. My condition reached a point where inserting anything was too painful and my partner didn’t want to inflict any more on me. While I was emotionally willing and wanting, my body simply couldn’t. For some women, these conditions can result in decreased sensations or libido as well. From this understanding, it’s no wonder so many women entering menopause have little sexual desire. They talk about hot flashes and weight gain, but the rest of the symptoms are simply too embarrassing to admit. I actually fe…

Interview on Ehealth Radio Podcast

Today, Dr. Chang's interview with Ehealth Radio podcast was published! Thank you so much, Eric Michaels! Here is a transcript of the podcast: 1. What are the major gaps in women's healthcare today, and is that what inspired you to create NeuEve? Today, people live longer than before. Many new type of drugs, like Viagra, are developed, but they are mostly for men. The medical community and drug companies have paid less attention to women. Vaginal atrophy after menopause is a common health issue. It affects many mid-aged women, especially breast cancer survivors. Today, vaginal atrophy is treated with estrogen, but it has cancer risk. Many women, especially cancer survivors, cannot use estrogen. Due to painful sex or unable to have intimacy, these women have decreased quality of life, and some lost marriages. Another major health issue is bacterial vaginosis or BV. Major symptoms include fishy odor and discharge. It increases the risk for STDs, cervical cancer …

Female Libido and Sexual Dysfunction

Hot Flashes Female Sexual Dysfunction Once women enter menopause, they often talk loudly about hot flashes and night sweats. The elephant in the room is loss of libido. Interest or desire for sex declines. Some women are unable to become aroused, while others cannot achieve orgasm. Moreover, vaginal dryness and atrophy, as well as painful sex, can also result in a loss of libido. The incidence of female sexual dysfunction is high, about 40% among normal aging postmenopausal women and close to 100% among breast cancer survivors who have been on an anti-hormonal therapy. Female sexual dysfunction can have a profound impact on quality of life, but it has been largely ignored by the healthcare community. Major reasons may include: traditional social conservatism, gender inequality, and cultural suppression against women’s sexual desire. Because truly effective remedies are not available, even if women openly seek care for sexual dysfunction, they are often given ineffective treatment…

Overcome Vaginismus Quickly, Effectively and Permanently

What is vaginismus? Vaginismus is a condition with painful spasmodic contraction of the vagina in response to physical contact or pressure (especially in sexual intercourse). When a woman has vaginismus, her vagina's muscles squeeze or spasm when something is entering it, like a tampon or a penis. It can be mildly uncomfortable, or it can be painful. What are the symptoms? Painful sex is often a woman's first sign that she has vaginismus. The pain happens only with penetration. It usually goes away after withdrawal. Many women who have vaginismus also feel discomfort when inserting a tampon or during a doctor's internal pelvic exam. What causes it?Doctors don't know exactly what causes vaginismus. It's often associated with anxiety and fear of having sex. Past traumas or painful sex might or overly sensitive nerves may contribute to the cause. Current treatments are palliativeKegel exercises: squeezing muscles you use to stop the flow of urine when urinating. B…

After the Hysterectomy - Fast Facts about Sex and Side Effects

If you're experiencing painful sex after a hysterectomy, help is on the way! Keep reading!
Hysterectomy Facts What is a Hysterectomy? A hysterectomy is the surgery to remove just the uterus (womb).
What does a Hysterectomy treat? It is a surgical procedure to treat diseases like fibroids, endometriosis, and cancers such as uterine and cervical cancers.
How does a Hysterectomy affect my sex life?If only the uterus is removed, it often does not affect sexual activity. You just need to refrain from sex for about six weeks after the surgery. Once the surgical wound heals, you can resume normal sexual activity as before. However, there are some exceptions:
50% of Hysterectomies include Bilateral Oophorectomy For about half of all hysterectomies in the United States, the ovaries are removed along with the uterus, especially when the procedure is a part of cancer treatment. This procedure is called bilateral oophorectomy.

Boric acid is a pesticide.Boric acid is poisonous to humans.Boric acid is an environmental pollutant.Boric acid actually makes bacterial vaginosis worse. What you read next may surprise you:
Boric acid is a pesticide. Boric acid has the nickname "the gift that keeps on killing." Cockroaches coming in contact with boric acid get an effect like shards of glass slowly cutting them apart. A tiny bit of boric acid can wipe out an entire whole roach colony, something even atomic bombs can't do. [1]
Boric acid is poisonous to humans. In 1988, in a tragic accident at a festival in Malaysia, 13 children died from food poisoning after they ate a dish containing boric acid. Their s…
