• What is a Hypertonic Pelvic Floor?

    This was not a thing in my vocabulary when I got my surgeries, I wish it would have been for sure though. The more I learn, it helps me understand (obviously) a lot more about myself and my body. You know when your in your teens and you’ve just discovered that there’s this thing called sex, and everyone’s like “omg I hope I don’t get “too” loose down there”, and kegels enter your life? This is when when you’re 15. So you start doing them when you’re waiting for the school bus – how f*cked up is that? Then you start watching Sex and the city when you’re 17, and…

    I’m a happy duck. I’m a happy person, with my ups and downs, but nothing that really defines as something more than just being a normal person. But it hasn’t always been like this.  Years ago I struggled with really bad anxiety and depression, due to what I’ve been through mentally and physically.
