I was asked by Shelby Heinrich of BuzzFeed for my advice on how peeing too often can affect your bladder health, and how to stop emptying your bladder when it's only half full instead of at full capacity. Here is a brief summary with a link to the full article.

I don't know about you, but I was always taught growing up that it's good to pee before leaving the house, "just in case."

Not really sure if you actually need to go? Just pop a squat and see what happens!

Makes sense, right? Why not pee now in order to avoid having to pee later, at a more inconvenient time? Well, according to TikToker @nosuchthingastmi, it's actually not a good idea!

      I would like to start off by thanking Heather Jeffcoat for educating me and curing me of Vaginismus. I had been married for almost three years before I was referred to Heather. I never knew about Vaginismus until almost three years into my marriage. I knew something was wrong when I went on my honeymoon and came back a Virgin. I had always imagined how magical my first night would be but boy was I wrong.
