Designed to address the many aspects of women's health over a lifetime, this series of books by Dr. Miriam Stoppard is uniquely accessible and affordable. Small, fully illustrated guides meet women's individual needs at every lifestage--from teenagers curious about their changing bodies to new mothers looking for advice and reassurance to women of all ages experiencing menopause. Fully illustrated, straight-forward, and practical, these are the ideal healthcare guides for every woman.
From menstruation to masturbation, losing your virginity, experimenting with drugs and alcohol, exercise, and good skin care, Dr. Stoppard addresses all the new experiences that come into a girl's life when she moves into her teen years. In plain language and even-handed advice, Dr. Stoppard provides girls with all the information they need to make informed decisions about their life. "I have no simple answer as to when you're old enough to have sex. No one can tell you this. The answer is, when you're able to cope with sexual relationships--and this varies." She encourages girls to talk to their parents or older sibling about these sensitive issues, even when it seems impossible. The book also provides a list of useful addresses for further support.
