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.

Learn the difference between an intentional vs. unintentional ruined orgasm and what it all means.

Though a ruined orgasm might sound like it has a simple definition — an orgasm that is ruined or halts before full climax – it can have multiple meanings. Some ruined orgasms are intentional, while others are not and can leave one feeling sexually frustrated. Those that are unintentional can also have multiple causes, both physical and emotional, which vary from person to person.

To get to the bottom of what is a ruined orgasm, the difference between an intentional and unintentional ruined orgasm, and how to stop having unintentional ruined orgasms, we reached out to healthcare providers and experts to get professional advice on everything to do with ruined orgasms.

The website "Greatist" recently penned a quite informative article on Kegels, and of course they reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for her expert opinion!

“The pelvic floor muscles are just like any other voluntary muscle in the body, so we can treat them in a similar fashion as we’d treat other muscles: with manual therapy, corrective exercises and nervous system relaxation,” explains Jeffcoat.

We cover the health and wellness stuff that matters — plus anything else that's cool, important, or maybe even life-changing. Our goal is to help you take healthy — or healthy-ish — actions every day to live your best life. We give you the tools. You make the rules.

Women's Health Magazine quotes Heather Jeffcoat on flatter abs and more

The widely repsected magazine "Women's Health" reached out to Heather Jeffcoat to open their most recent article on pelvic floor health and alternatives to Kegels, including yoga poses such as the Pelvic Brace, Pelvic Tilt, Deep Squat, and more. The opening paragraph reads:

Having a strong pelvic floor is ideal for lots of reasons. “Your pelvic floor works in tandem with the deep abdominal muscles, acting as an internal corset, which can help reduce low back pain, urinary and bowel incontinence and improve sexual function—good coordination of this muscle group is also a great step towards flatter abs," says pelvic floor physical therapist, Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, founder of Femina Physical Therapy.

Once again Cosmopolitan Magazine's online staff has tapped Heather Jeffcoat

for her expertise in all things related to pelvic floor health

Listen: As someone who enjoys the feeling of soreness post-workout, I can assure you that I do not feel the same way the morning-after a different kind of sweat sesh. And, just a guess, but I'm going to assume that a sore vagina after sex doesn't feel too great for you either. For one, you might not know why or what is causing the soreness—which is, like, super irritating.

Secondly, you may not know how to help or soothe your sore vagina because sex-ed contributed *literally* nothing to your sexual wellness knowledge. And third, you can't easily engage in round two, or three, or four with your S.O. the morning after because, umm… ouch.

      I wanted to let you know that my pelvic floor held strong and gave me no trouble whatsoever in my trail race this morning (12 miles)! In a way, I felt like I ran better than ever because my core feels so rock solid from all the exercises you have me doing. That was especially valuable on the technical downhill - I just flew down the trail because I had confidence in my balance and form. Thank you for helping me get back to doing what I love. -- A.W., age 32(completed Post-partum Renewal...

      While pregnant with my twins, Heather took care with keeping me on my feet and pain free. She saved my back, my sanity and the holidays! I would recommend her to every “mom” looking to stay on her feet during pregnancy and post-partum. -- T.C.
