You CAN improve your sex life!
You can?t always be a sexual dynamo. Life events like having a baby, going into menopause, and other pelvic floor dysfunctions can affect your self-confidence and interest and/or ability to enjoy sex. At Core Pelvic PT we can help you overcome these issues.
The change in hormones and aging can lead to many menopausal symptoms including a low interest in sex, vaginal dryness, urinary urgency or leakage, pain with intercourse, and a general lack of body confidence. Here?s an article you might find interesting on this topic:
Working with your pelvic floor PT and using a tool like the vFit Plus can help to get your juices flowing again, and restart the excitement of sex with your partner again.
After having a baby, or several children, many women experience changes in their sex life. This major change in life can affect your pelvic floor strength, body shape, energy levels, and mood. On top of that parenting decreases the amount of ?free time? you have to be intimate with your partner. Here?s an article about all the challenges a mother faces after childbirth.

Specific exercises and physical therapy to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles also improve urinary control and quality of life. It’s helpful to work with a professional physical therapist experienced in helping women retrain their pelvic floor muscles. The training may include Kegel exercises, biofeedback, muscle strengthening, and other techniques. You may also want to explore Bluetooth and smartphone “pelvic floor trainer” apps. However, there haven’t yet been any scientific studies of these apps, so it’s still not known how helpful they will be. (1)
