INDEX OF AUTHORS

think I should ever get quite right again. After the pessary had 

been placed in position every trace of pain, etc., left me. A 

year later I thought I would try and do without the pessary, and 

to my great satisfaction none of the old trials came back after 

its removal, in spite of much trouble, anxiety, sick nursing, and 

fatigue. I attribute the disorder entirely to violent sexual 

excitement which was not permitted its natural gratification and 

relief. 

 

"I have reason to believe that suppression acts very injuriously 

on a woman's mental capacity. When excitement is naturally 

relieved the mind turns of its own accord to another subject, but 

when suppressed it is unable to do this. Personally, in the 

latter event, I find the greatest difficulty in concentrating my 

thoughts, and mental effort becomes painful. Other women have 

complained to me of the same difficulty. I have tried mechanical 

mental work, such as solving arithmetical or algebraic problems, 

but it does no good; in fact, it seems only to increase the 

excitement. (I may remark here that my feelings are always very 

strong not only before and after the monthly period, but also 

during the time itself; very unfortunately, as, of course, they 

cannot then be gratified. This only applies to desire from 

within, as I am strongly susceptible to influences from without 

at any time.) There seems nothing to be done but to bow to the 

storm till it passes over. Anything I do during the time it 

lasts, even household work, is badly done. The brain seems to 

become addled for the time being, while after gratification of 

desire it seems to attain an additional quickness and cleverness. 

Perhaps this cause contributes to the small amount of 

intellectual and artistic work done by women, admitting their 

natural inferiority to men in artistic impulse. A woman whose 

passions are satisfied generally has her strength sapped by 

maternity, while her attention is drawn from abstract ideas to 

her children."
