  1. I’m glad about the class action suit but also in the US (and I’m sure in other countries) it’s still hard to find a pelvic floor PT and also insurance companies still like to approve something like surgery vs an ongoing therapy. I really wish pelvic floor PT was available to everyone.

    • I went to pelvic floor therapy before and after my vaginoplasty, and my PT was fantastic. A friend of mine finally got her shit together and went to see her on my recommendation for some chronic issues, and it helped her a lot. But then she stopped going because it was crazy expensive and her insurance wouldn’t cover it. She’s in the ED multiple times a year with acute abdominal pain related to stress and trauma that that could be treated with regular therapy. Insurance is such a shitshow.
