Heather Jeffcoat, DPT | Painful Intercourse with Interstitial Cystitis

Dr. Nicole Cozean interviews Heather Jeffcoat, DPT about Painful Intercourse with Interstitial Cystitis.

Dr. Nicole Cozean is a PelvicSanity and ICA Board Member and author of the book, "The Interstitial Cystitis Solution".

Heather Jeffcoat was a featured guest on the "Interstitial Cystitis Association" Youtube Channel for the ICA Walk for Awareness Event. Heather believes that rather than normalizing issues that negatively affect sex and pelvic floor health, it is the conversation about the causes and treatments for pelvic floor issues that needs to be normalized, just like when discussing any other body part.

Heather discusses a holistic approach to treating symptoms from painful intercourse with Interstitial Cystitis and other chronic pain issues. She covers a variety of approaches including communication between partners, an anatomical understanding, and physical tools.


Heather & Dr. Nicole Cozean also discuss:

  • a team approach to treatment for painful intercourse with Interstitial Cystitis, over a linear medical model and an approach of understanding to the interconnectedness of the bladder, pelvic floor, and nervous systems in working towards a holistic solution
  • understanding anatomy and exploring physical positioning to combat pain during intercourse; kegels
  • the free virtual event - Interstitial Cystitis Association Walk for a Cure

My husband who is a physician was very supportive and agreed that a PT evaluation would be a great idea. So i made the appointment and was blown away by what I learned. I had no idea that pelvic floor muscles could get tight and have...
