Sex Toys For Women with Endometriosis

Cosmo Seeks Out the Best Sex Toys For Women with Endometriosis

Cosmopolitan Magazine's online staff has recently discovered what an invaluable resource they have at their fingertips every time they reach out to Heather Jeffcoat for her knowledge of pelvic floor health. In their latest article about living with endometriosis they ask Heather for her opinion on the best sex toys for women with endometriosis.

The article begins:

"If you have endometriosis, a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of it, you’re not alone. Really. “The common condition affects between 10 and 20 percent of women, and can unfortunately be an excruciatingly painful experience,” says clinical psychologist Daniel Sher, consultant for Between Us Clinic, an online sex-therapy program.

The disorder most commonly involves a woman’s ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis—which means having sex and/or your period can, in basic terms, feel similar to Freddy Krueger stabbing you with his weird razor hand over, and over, and over again, right in the uterus. Fun, right?"

Heather Jeffcoat on sex toys for women with endometriosis:

"Women with endometriosis will typically have pain upon deeper thrusting. One option for them to experience penetration with less pain is to use a depth-limiting toy, such as the OhNut," says physical therapist Heather Jeffcoat, who specializes in treating women who experience painful sex. "I also recommend that patients put the OhNut at the base of their favorite vibrator if only pain with depth is an issue."

"Endometriosis is often accompanied by vulvodynia, which means pain in the external genitalia, aka pain with penetration. If a woman experiences this, then I recommend she focus on a clitoral vibrator that hugs over the mons pubis, such as the Touch by We Vibe," says Jeffcoat. "The vibrator has rumbly settings that are very relaxing to muscles, which is important since women with endometriosis tend to have overactive pelvic floor muscles because of the pain they're experiencing in the area."
