How Overactive Pelvic Floor May Be Contributing to Painful Sex
In this video, we are going to discuss lichen sclerosus and overactive pelvic floor. Specifically, we are going to discuss how lichen sclerosus may predispose you to experience overactive floor and how that can cause pain with sex. For this video, joined by Dr. Mukta Chauhan, who is double board certified in orthopedics and pelvic health. She is a tremendous resource for all things bladder, bowel, and pelvic pain. Dr. Chauhan demonstrates how the pelvic floor muscles are connected to the vulva, how this can create painful sex, and what you can do about it. She drops some amazing information in this video, so be sure to give it a watch!
