“I have educated and inspired my girls to take care of themselves, physically, mentally and spiritually. I have always integrated Eastern medicine philosophies in my health care and so have my girls. I took them both to see Dr. Sherry to start forming their own relationship in their mid-teens. Even though we talked about what it meant to be sexually active, having safe sex, and being in touch with your body, I knew it was important for them to have an independent relationship with their doctor. I am not sure who was more nervous about their first gyno visit with Dr. Sherry, them or me. I was proud of them and knew this was the right step for them to feel safe and in control of their own personal health and wellness. Now they are comfortable enough to call or text Dr. Sherry directly knowing she will be there for them in my absence. They know I encourage healthy living and I want them to embrace this philosophy as well.”

Adolescence. Remember it? You may have blocked it out, but what you can recall is a vague feeling of how difficult a time it was and how many new issues there were to contend with—environmental, social, financial, psycho-social. Ah, you remember now; at least it was never dull. Probably you had a lot of unanswered questions as well. Probably you had a lot of unanswered questions as well. Probably some of those questions had to do with your own body and sexuality, which is why you want to give your daughter the knowledge and encouragement to take control of her vagina (and her life) in order to empower herself on her own journey. Well, you’ve come to the right place, because I believe that our daughters are the front line of the vagina revolution.
