Me & My Menopausal Vagina
« on: January 10, 2019, 08:48:27 PM »

Happy New Year to you all, & I wish Health & Happiness for 2019. 😊

Just a bit of an update for those who are interested how my book is doing ď Me & My Menopausal VaginaĒ.

Itís now found its way around the world 😊 I have had many many emails & mesages from sufferers many who have told no one including their partners.

A 85 year old lady from the US who had been suffering years has found comfort & help from it. Itís saved a marriage that was heading for the divorce courts. Itís got ladies buying mirrors, having a look, being shocked in some cases & then getting help.

Others assumed thrush turned out to be lichen sclerosus. Ladies have found ď courage ď to go back to their GP and stand their ground & get the treatment they need.

A womenís health physio, had heard about the book in Australia as ladies had bought it, she has now bought 24 to distribute in OZ the books flew out yesterday.😊

I have been invited to give a talk in March to womenís health physios, this event is off of the back of the book. Fab.

Another lady who would NEVER talk about vaginas has helped a friend & is telling friends to read the book.

The book now has 41 reviews on amazon, is in the best seller range & is standing its ground. Apparently there are about 23 million in total books on amazon, and it averages in the top 15-50,000 pretty good after 4 months. ( will never make money as thatís the top 100 ). So I am proud I must say.

I still havenít had ONE horrid person on any of the social media sites, this I was dreading I have had nothing but kindness & a at last a book thatís about more than hot flushes & anxiety.

I have been part of a campaign of a week each for vulva cancer, vaginal atrophy & this week lichen sclerosus a core group of us are working together to try and make change & educate.

So proud as punch, other ď stuffĒ on the horizon & I will see where ď Me & My Menopausal Vagina ď take me.

For those who arenít aware my 30 year old middle daughter Penny wrote the book ( she lives in shanghai) I told her the style, it had to have humour & to leave no stone unturned.

The artist was a backpacker Penny met a few years ago while traveling around South America, she is from Norway.

The book cover was also designed by Penny. The lollipop has quite a few meanings. 😉

Hope VA sufferers are as OK as can be. 😊

Absolutely wonderful Maryjane - what an inspiration. Brilliant that such a difficult subject can explode into the world where such information is so needed. Of course you are pleased as punch, who wouldn't be.

Thank you CLKD & Lady....it hasnít exploded but itís definitely sending ripples itís the physios that have really embraced it as they see women day in day out with vaginal / vulva pain , bladder issues etc.

Daughter is putting together a poster to see if GPs etc will put them on loo doors, in surgeries etc.

So pleased to read this MaryJane.  I purchased the ebook just a couple of weeks ago and am about a third of the way through.  I am so pleased to find out more about this truly horrible condition which has affected me for over 7 years now.

Amazing, but not a surprise for me. Youíve done so much more than write a good book about a seldom-talked about issue, as evident in your thousands of emails from grateful readers.
And youíve given women reassurance, peace of mind, help, encouragement, confidence and hope.
I canít think of another book thatís managed all of that.
An awesome achievement. X
