WELCOME

I’m a great woman with a pissed-off vulva. I have “primary vestibulitis." Most people are uncomfortable discussing their genital pain in public. Well, I’m not…so, welcome to my blog! There aren’t definitive answers in medical literature to explain the pain cycle of pelvic pain and how to heal it - yet. My hope is that my 21-year obsession to find help for myself will make your experience shorter, easier, and less painful. P.S. Recently "vestibulitis" has been renamed to "vestibulodynia."

What is Your Pelvic Diaphragm? The "Sling Thing" They Always Talk About

If you have wondered what the "pelvic diaphragm" or "sling" that books refer to, here is a video by the same excellent youtube poster about nerves

The content covers the muscles that become the levator ani consisting of the puborectalis, the pubococcygygeus, and the illiococcygeus and the coccygeus.  Although not technically part of the pelvic diaphragm, he addresses the location of the piriformis muscle.

Note that his first few minutes are somewhat blurry and then it becomes focused. 7 minutes.
