Dr. Heather Jeffcoat is a physical therapist with her degree from Duke University and international speaker and author. The majority of her practice is women with sexual dysfunction, such as painful sex and the inability to have sex due to pain, painful orgasm or postcoital pain.
Some of the most common diagnoses include: Vaginismus, Vestibulodynia, Endometriosis and Interstitial Cystitis (or Painful Bladder Syndrome) or dysorgasmia. These women are frequently dismissed by their medical providers as it “all being in their head” or “a normal part of aging”, and although these problems are frequently occurring, dismissive statements like these from medical providers only delays treatment that would otherwise get them feeling great about having sex or other aspects of their live again. She is the owner of Femina Physical Therapy in Los Angeles, CA ( FeminaPT.com ) and author of "Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve".
