Hello Giggles Quotes Heather
Register

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:

      A personal journey and testimonial from one of my patients: I was diagnosed with vaginismus 4 years ago. I never heard of such medical condition until after I got married. At first my husband and I didn't know what to do, we didn't know what the issues were or how to overcome it. Being born and raised in Armenia and being Christian I wasn't that open about talking to sex with others and so it wasn't easy to seek help. But eventually I went to an Ob-Gyn and luckily she knew about the medical...
