Once again the Greatist website has reached out to Heather Jeffcoat

In this latest article they discuss ways to improve your sexual stamina

Anyone who’s tried standing sex knows certain positions require quite a bit of strength and agility to pull off. And not only that, there’s data that suggests getting exercise can add some oomph and level up arousal.

So while we’d never tell you fitness automatically leads to good sex (only good communication and lube can do that, after all), exercise is, at the very least, a great source of endorphins.

That’s why we called up some experts and put together this collection of moves geared toward getting your body ready for a raucous roll in the hay.

Vaginal dilators go into the vagina, but they’re not sex toys

Vaginal dilators are a medical tool used to either relax and stretch the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissues to reduce pain or help desensitize hypersensitive vaginal tissue, says Heather Jeffcoat, a doctor of physical therapy who specializes in sexual dysfunction and incontinence.

Basically, they help the vagina expand in size (and get used to size).

The website "Greatist" has once again reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for her expert opinion, this time regarding postpartum sex after delivery via c-section.

Recovering after a C-section is tough, especially since you’re also adjusting to your new routine (or lack thereof) as a parent. In the thick of postpartum stress, when you’re sleep-deprived and sore, you might wonder when you’ll feel “normal” again — or at least back to wanting the things you used to crave, like regular sex with your boo.

The website "Greatist" recently penned a quite informative article on Kegels, and of course they reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for her expert opinion!

“The pelvic floor muscles are just like any other voluntary muscle in the body, so we can treat them in a similar fashion as we’d treat other muscles: with manual therapy, corrective exercises and nervous system relaxation,” explains Jeffcoat.

What They Say About Us

  • Testimonials

    • Testimonial by M.M.

      My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!
