Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide To The Sex Life You Deserve was written by Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a physical therapist with countless successes in treating pain of this type. Women with vaginismus, overactive pelvic floor, painful intercourse, vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, vestibulodynia, dyspareunia, interstitial cystitis have all benefited from her unique program.

Heather uses her orthopaedic background to approach treatment of these muscles like they are....muscles! She utilizes a self-treatment tool called a dilator to provide massage and other muscle relaxation and stretching techniques in a gentle fashion to return a women's muscles back to a resting, rather than guarded, state.

Trusted Professional Resource Guide:

Although Heather's book offers a comprehensive self-treatment program, we firmly believe the best way to treat pain with intercourse is to involve a team of competent, supportive professional experts. In addition, an initial evaluation by a physician (to rule out medical sources of pain), and a consultation with a physical therapist are highly recommended (and may be necessary) before beginning this, or any other, self-treatment or exercise program.

We strongly encourage you to obtain the services of a qualified physician and women’s health physical therapist with a record of success in treating pain during intercourse to support you on your healing journey. We also urge you to seek help from a licensed professional counselor or sex therapist if you experience emotional issues related to sexuality or intimacy at any point during this program. 

Ideally, you will be able to locate these services in your neighborhood; but since that may not be the case, we have created our own contact list of trusted professionals for you. These physicians, therapists, and counselors are available to consult with and treat patients worldwide. Some are available via telephone and Skype sessions, and all of them offer consultation and treatment through in-person office visits.

Each one is well versed in pelvic pain issues and has a track record of success in treating women with pain during intercourse and/or the accompanying emotional and intimacy issues that may develop as a result. If you cannot locate a qualified professional in your area, and don’t feel supported by your current caregivers, don’t hesitate to contact them, and check this page periodically for updates to this list.
