Thanks to all who came out and joined in on the fun at the third annual Girls Night Out, this year hosted by Big & Tiny Silver Lake, a beautifully designed coworking space for families that provides educational programming and childcare.

We had a night of informative and fun conversations about pelvic and sexual health with Dr. Kimberly Resnick Anderson (Sex Therapist and host of the Sex Savvy podcast), Heather Jeffcoat, DPT (owner of Femina Physical Therapy) and Lisa Valle, D.O. (Oasis Women’s Sexual Function Center).

Just a few of the exciting highlights from the evening:

Dr. Lisa Valle, MD

Dr. Valle talked about the vulva throughout the lifespan, the lack of education about peri-menopause, and menopause, and common issues for postpartum clients. 

  • An anatomy lesson of the vulva, do you know your parts?
  • What does a normal vulva look like? They can look very different!
    Check out @the.vulva.gallery on Instagram to see drawings of how different vulvas can look.
  •  Menopause: We should learn about it and celebrate it!
  • Common symptoms of perimenopause
    • Irritability
    • Feeling of loss of control
    • Vaginal Dryness
    • Irregular menstruation (either further apart or closer together)

  • Common menopause-like symptoms experienced postpartum
    • Vaginal Dryness
    • Decreased Estrogen levels

Dr. Heather Jeffocoat, DPT

Our very own Heather Jeffcoat, DPT empowered us with some knowledge about physical anatomy to help bolster pelvic health.

  • Conditions including incontinence and pain with sex are too often normalized when they could easily be treated by a pelvic floor therapist. 
  • Kegels are not always the answer
  • Length-tension curve: why long muscles can be weak, and also how short muscles can be weak. 
  • A guided tour of our brain and a homunculus map.
  • Postpartum symptoms that are commonly dismissed (i.e. painful intercourse) and said that will resolve once they are done breastfeeding. Pelvic floor therapists can help address these symptoms even when still breastfeeding. Why wait when you can get help.

      I had tried Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy before (with another PT) and I had a really bad (painful) experience.
