Heather Jeffcoat on 6 Sex Positions to Try if Sex Is Painful

Sex should never hurt, of course. But painful sex is a common enough issue that it actually has a medical name. Dyspareunia, or painful intercourse, is any persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs before, during, or after penetrative sex, and it may affect 8% to 20% of women according to some studies.

The article and accompanying video details six different sex positions to try if painful sex is an issue:

  • Woman on top - allows you to control the pace and depth of penetration
  • Spooning - allows the woman to control the depth of a thrust by raising or lowering their leg
  • Outercourse - penetration is not necessary to have great, orgasmic sexual experiences
  • Doggy style - a great position for women to try if they have pain at "6 o’clock"
  • C-spot sensations - lie on your stomach and have your partner approach you from behind, but encourage him to remain still
  • Chair twerking - when deeper penetration is what leads to pain, play with positions that allow for shallow penetration

The full article and video are here.

      My last appointment with Heather was over 6 years ago but I still think of her every day. I don’t take for granted that I can easily get out of bed, care for my two active and busy young boys, run, play tennis, clean my house, or sit at a desk for several hours at a time. None of these tasks were easy for me before meeting Heather. Eight years ago my car was struck from behind by a tractor trailer that was estimated to have been speeding. I spent 3 years working with different PTs and Drs...

      I went to Heather after the birth of my third child.  It was lucky, really, that I was referred to her, because my doctor had referred me to a surgeon for a possible hysterectomy or pelvic wall rebuild.  Thankfully, I went to Heather before undergoing either surgery, she was able to fix the problem.  She has studied extensively in women's health--even written a book about it--and was able to diagnose my problem, suggest a course of treatment (6 weeks), and then follow through with said treatment....
