This episode was originally going to be about kegels, but I quickly realized that what we really needed to talk about was the pelvic floor. Painful sex and incontinence are two things I want to avoid at all costs. Unfortunately, the more research I do the more I realize how common these experiences are. A few episodes ago I interviewed my cousin Sarah and she talked about her experience with pelvic floor physical therapy. I decided I wanted to learn more about how this works in the US.
I reached out to a local hospital, Hennepin County Medical Center and they connected me with an incredible physical therapist, Beth Stegora. Beth answered a lot of my questions about the pelvic floor.
