The Natasha Helfer Podcast

Oct 23, 2021

Disclaimer: Natasha originally recorded this podcast for her Healing Sols podcast.

Natasha has an informative discussion with Dr. Christine King Burke, a pelvic floor physical therapist and clinical supervisor for the Hoag Pelvic Health Program in Newport Beach, CA.

You will hear an educational conversation about the many reasons women in particular experience painful sex. It is disheartening to hear the statistics of how common it is for women to report painful sex, and how it is often normalized by our culture instead of understanding that there are reasons and treatments for issues such as vaginismus, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, and more. Listening will help you understand what issues you or your partner may be experiencing so that you can be better prepared to advocate for your pelvic floor health with your medical providers.

We answer questions like: Should everyone be doing kegel exercises? Are some penises just too big for some vaginas? Isn’t it normal for sex to hurt the first time you have intercourse, after having a baby or after menopause? What about anal sex? What does a pelvic floor therapist do?
