Heather Jeffcoat and Femina Physical Therapy at Hello Giggles

hello giggles largeHelloGiggles.com is an entertainment and lifestyle website launched in May 2011. It was founded by actress/musician Zooey Deschanel, producer Sophia Rivka Rossi and writer Molly McAleer. The website is geared toward women, and covers topics in popular culture, love, friendship, careers, style, food, and daily news. HelloGiggles.com is marketed as a "positive online community" by its users with a strict "no gossip" policy. Reader contributions are permitted, and many are published every day.

Once again the highly ranked health and fitness website Hello Giggles has tapped Heather Jeffcoat for some valuable insights into ways to alleviate pain associated with sex. The article begins with:

"While collaborative, orgasmic, sticky, and kinky are just a few adjectives that could be used to talk about sex, 75 percent of vulva-owners may also include “painful” to the list."

Heather chimes in

If you’re experiencing painful penetrative sex, one of the first steps is understanding that there are other ways to experience intimacy and sexual pleasure,” says Jeffcoat. “I like to direct patients to use their hands or a vibrator and explore external or clitoral stimulation.

The goal is first to find sex acts and positions that don’t cause discomfort or pain and instead, increase pleasure.

Sex therapists are also a great way to work on intimacy issues and relationship difficulties that can be exacerbated by the sexual pain.

      I can’t speak highly enough of Nancy, and how much she has helped me grow, discover, and love my body. I had had painful sex for my entire life, and didn’t know that there was anything that could be done about it. It was at the point where my husband and I were not having sex for MONTHs, because it was just too frustrating, and I hated feeling like I was the ONLY woman out there who had this problem, especially at my age. I finally brought it up to my doctor because I was turning 40 and my...

    • Testimonial by Jamie M.

      I have been going to see Heather for a while now, and I can't tell you enough how much she has improved my quality of life. Heather specializes in issues like pelvic floor, but I see her for other orthopedic issues. I have a lot of chronic joint pain and dysfunction issues (back, hips, neck) that require that have ongoing physical therapy maintenance.
