1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. P. A. Recher on July 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
Listening to ABC, I heard Dr Elizabeth Stewart discussing her and Paula Spencer's "The V book- a doctor's guide to vulvovaginal health." Realizing this was a book for my daughters, I ordered two copies.

Having a fascination with the subject matter, I naturally read the work before posting. I learnt things I didn't know that I didn't even know, I didn't know.

Try Recher's V-quiz.

For the same reason as their armpits. The labia majora sweat. Ordinary sweating is a common cause of vulvovaginal odour.
