Excerpt from the Daily Mail’s newspaper.
Feminist Naomi Wolf finds enjoyment in sex again after her nerve ‘wiring’ is repaired by surgeon
• Author felt something different was happening after sex
• ‘I felt I was losing somehow, what made me a woman’
• Doctor found she had been born with mild spina bifida
The American academic researched her condition but found no explanation for the loss of sensation until she visited New York gynaecologist Dr Deborah Coady.
Dr Coady told her it could be a problem with the pelvic nerve – her area of expertise – being compressed and casuing numbness.
Some pelvic nerves originate in the clitoris, others from the vagina and cervix, and branch out, via the pudendal nerve to the base of the spinal cord.
