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 who are experiencing this condition:
"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."
