Hello Giggles Quotes Heather
Register

Hello Giggles is a positive online community for women (although men are always welcome!) covering the latest in culture, female empowerment, style, relationships, friendship, careers, and issues that matter most to young women’s lives.

The author, Arielle Tschinkel, quotes Heather Jeffcoat in the new article "11 weird things that can happen to your body after sex", including:

Medication and diet helped control my IC symptoms, but I had never heard of physical therapy being used to treat IC. The education and treatment I received from Heather was a revelation. She explained that the pain I experienced with IC had helped create a cycle of muscle guarding which affected the entire pelvic area. I had no idea of the amount of...
