Who needs wine when you have Mona Lisa!!

The best thing I ever did for myself and my husband. I thought I would always have to live with the pain and discomfort during intercourse. No creams or pills will correct painful interciurse but the Mona Lisa with just 1 treatment made me feel great about SEX again. Don't be embarrassed. The Dr and staff are wonderful and I felt very comfortable.
