If it feels like Freddy Krueger is attacking your uterus every five seconds, right this way.

Heather Jeffcoat and the Femina PT team are known the world over when it comes to pelvic floor health and sexual wellbeing, and Cosmopolitan Magazine regularly reaches out to Heather for her insights into a variety of related issues.

In Cosmo's latest article about living with endometriosisTaylor Andrews gets Heather's opinion on the best sex toys for women who are experiencing this condition:

"Women with endometriosis will typically have pain upon deeper thrusting. One option for them to experience penetration with less pain is to use a depth-limiting toy, such as the OhNut," says physical therapist Heather Jeffcoat, who specializes in treating women who experience painful sex. "I also recommend that patients put the OhNut at the base of their favorite vibrator if only pain with depth is an issue."

"Endometriosis is often accompanied by vulvodynia, which means pain in the external genitalia, aka pain with penetration. If a woman experiences this, then I recommend she focus on a clitoral vibrator that hugs over the mons pubis, such as the Touch by We Vibe," says Jeffcoat. "The vibrator has rumbly settings that are very relaxing to muscles, which is important since women with endometriosis tend to have overactive pelvic floor muscles because of the pain they're experiencing in the area."

      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.

      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....
