Pee, Poo, Pleasure, Pain and Periods
Get to know Candice by listening to her feature on the MSH webinar.
“I enjoy talking Pee, Poo, PLEASURE, Pain and Periods…and you can expect just that, open, honest & informative content. I want to address common concerns and start important conversations that are all too often ‘brushed under the rug’ (pun intended). I aim to do so in a light hearted and approachable manner where I encourage you to engage and interact as you journey through your own self discovery.”
Candice Jane Langford is a UCT qualified Physiotherapist with a special interest in the niche market of pelvic and sexual health. In a world where no one talks about these supposed taboo topics, Candice is yelling from the roof tops and popping up on Instagram feeds, about everything pee, poo, pleasure, pain and period related. Her goal; to empower through education whilst encouraging a shameless narrative on her Instagram platform @nurtureyourvagina. Here she shares an abundance of information, such as her daily “Quickies” videos, and runs regular webinars and exercise classes.
When not treating patients in her Ballito practice at Health Matters or furthering her education in the trauma and psychosexual arena, Candice either has her head stuck in neuroscience resources or anything with the word “vagina” on the cover. For pleasure (excuse the pun) she enjoys heading to the beach and capturing her well known “in case you haven’t seen the sea today” snapshots after a run or throwing a punch or two at her boxing instructor. You can join in the conversations you wish you’d had growing up (and may still cringe over) by following her IG page @nurtureyourvagina or checking out her website NurturePelvicHealth.com and help Candice on her mission to break down barriers and normalise the narrative in holistic pelvic & sexual wellbeing.

You are NOT alone! In a recent postpartum study (Banei et al 2020) the prevalence for painful intercourse was reported as 35% (that’s a very hight 1 in 3 moms!)
More specifically the prevalence at:
– 2 months postpartum: 42%
– 2-6 months postpartum: 43%
– 6-12 months postpartum: 22% (a full year later! THIS is too high!) – Lucky you have this course right!!
Other studies have identified a ~28% lifetime prevalence of pain (note, this is not referring to postpartum moms)
In 2017, Mitchel et al. reported a prevalence of 7.5% of 7000 ‘women’ , 1/4 of which had experienced frequent pain for >6 months!!
This, my friend, is why I created this course! You deserve access to information, to self care to empowerment to manage independently as well as the confidence to advocate for your wellbeing when communicating with professionals!
Enjoy your journey from pain to pleasure!!
Clients have completed this course and moved from painful to pleasurable penetration, without the need to consult with a practitioner. With this said, I can confidently say that no self-guided course could replace a one on one medical consultation. Although you are well aware of my background as a professional, self guided courses cannot be claimed or submitted to medical insurance. This course will however provide you with necessary insight to jumpstart your journey!
This course will provide you with the knowledge and insight to not only advocate for your sexual wellbeing but also to implement tools to facilitate desired change. This course will take you through; anatomy education, pain education, self -assessment, self management tools – breath work, mobility routines, exercise class, hands on release techniques, internal release techniques, dilator use and progressions to penetrative sex. In addition to this we will cover, intimacy techniques (non-penetrative), how to confidently talk about sex and establish your unique meaning of ‘sex’, how to intentionally shop for lubricant and devices and so much more.
