THE Women’s DIY PELVIC PAIN RELIEF PROGRAM™
BECAUSE LIFE IS BETTER WITHOUT PAIN IN YOUR PANTS.
Do you flinch at just the thought of sex?
Perhaps you’re doubled over in pain for three, four, five days after intimacy?
Or maybe you can’t even insert a tampon without excruciating pain, let alone a penis. And those gynecological exams… They want to stick what where? Not gonna happen.
Your symptoms should never be shrugged off or labelled as normal. When something doesn't feel right, that’s because something isn’t right.
End of story.
Doctors may have told you this directly or TV shows may have given you the hint that periods are supposed to be painful and crampy, like a crime scene in your panties. And that stabbing, burning, throbbing, aching, raw pain during and after sex? Oh that’s just the ‘price you pay’ as a woman having sex, right?
Ever been told… Oh, just have a glass of wine and relax.
Hold it right there! That’s not how it goes!
Healthy menstrual cycles should be as easy as taking a breath of air. And sex should be relaxing and pleasurable for women too.
You don’t have to live like this.
The Women’s DIY Pelvic Pain Relief program is not like the advice your physician gives you. It’s multifaceted and even maybe a little surprising.
If you live on MindBodyGreen, devour health blogs or spend any free moment scouring the internet for stretches for pelvic pain, tips on nutrition or advice about the best natural skin care regimes, it means you want to take an active role in your health.
But all those little nuggets of information can be overwhelming.
The materials and resources in the Women’s DIY program simply aren’t in the toolbox of most health practitioners out there.
This program is straight forward. It gets you on track to a healthy and happy pelvis.
And what you’ll learn will apply beyond the bedroom too.
The Women’s DIY Pelvic Pain Relief program is a journey of self-discovery and trust to set you on the path to feeling better than ever.
I give you the resources you need to understand your own pain, the language to comprehensively talk about your pain to others (like doctors and your partner), and the materials to start feeling better all-around and having pain-free sex again.
And believe it or not. You don’t have to dread gynecological exams. Imagine if they could be pleasant experiences that help you regain control of your health.
While this program is a jumpstart to a healthier and happier pelvis, you’ll also receive tools that will support you long-term and help you get on track to living life again: back to being you.
The Women’s DIY Pelvic Pain Relief program gives you the tools to learn about and heal your body in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
YOU live in your body day in day out.
YOU are the best advocate for your health for this reason.
YOU are the only one with first-hand experience of what’s going on inside of you.
THAT’S WHY DIY!
The Women’s DIY Pelvic Pain Relief program is a 6-week journey that starts with a self-exploration of your own anatomy and the psychophysiology of pain, then dives into topics like nutrition and stress, and finishes up by guiding you to have a personal plan of pleasure for solo intimacy or intimacy with a partner...
And much more.
It’s time to start practicing pleasure, not pain.
"After I learned the role of my brain in pain, I could make sense of all the tools at my disposal and finally start getting better."
New York, NY
“After being diagnosed with endometriosis at 21: after 7 years of healthcare professionals not taking my symptoms seriously, my doctor recommended Lupron Depot or a hormonal IUD as treatment to manage my endo symptoms and a laparoscopy to excise the lesions when the pain became unbearable. This treatment recommendation didn’t consider my quality of life or what I wanted.
Dr. Susie Gronski helped me put together the pieces of the puzzle. After I learned how the brain plays a role in pain and the biological changes in my body after years of unchecked persistent pain, I started to make sense of all the tools at my disposal and how they could physically and psychologically support me. I could make actionable decisions based on what I learned about my own pain and what tool would be most beneficial in each flare-up invoking situation. It’s empowering to know that I have the knowledge to make intelligent decisions to help me feel better instantly and in the long-run. Dr. Susie Gronski’s Women’s DIY Pelvic Pain Relief Program gives you the tools you need to take back your life.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONs
+ IS THIS PROGRAM OPEN TO ANYONE WHO EXPERIENCES PAINFUL SEX OR DO I NEED A PARTICULAR DIAGNOSIS?
Sex should never be painful no matter who you are. This program was created with love for anyone who has a uterus and vagina that experiences pain with any type of insertion, whether that’s during a gynecological exam, inserting a tampon, with a partner, or just solo play. Maybe you have a pain in the ass, literally. Maybe sitting or wearing your favorite jeans is uncomfortable. No matter what diagnosis you’ve been told, the tools and strategies you’ll learn in this program are more than just stretches. They’re lifelong skills for health.
+ I’VE ALREADY TRIED EVERYTHING - WILL THIS WORK FOR ME?
That depends on what ‘everything’ includes. But I’ve found repeatedly that the women who have been let down by other solutions often take this program and finally find relief. These materials and resources simply aren’t in the toolbox of most physicians or health practitioners out there. In addition, no therapy will work if you can’t make the appointments (especially if you can’t even get out of bed). A method you can stick with – that is, one you can do at home, even still in bed! - will always work better than one you have to skip.
+ HOW WILL I KNOW THE PROGRAM IS WORKING?
You’ll feel more confident and safer to explore your body, and explore the activities that you’ve avoided because of pain. You’ll have more control of pain, fewer flare-ups and more evidence that feeling good is possible for you again. Life as you know it will be viewed from a whole different perspective, one that is hopeful, energized, exciting and resilient for what life brings your way. You might still notice yourself tensing or guarding once in a while, but you’ll have better control of these protective signs and feel safe to let go. You might even notice those plaguing thoughts that play on repeat in your mind loosen their power and control over you, which means more peace in your mind and in your heart. Bottom line, wonderful changes are coming your way, if you’re ready to release the past so that you can embrace a future that isn’t dictated by pain.
+ WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE PROGRAM DOESN’T WORK FOR ME?
The program is filled with tons of treatment options and you’ll walk away feeling more confident at being the expert of you. That being said, pelvic pain is complex and often requires a team approach to help you heal. So if you do find yourself feeling great, but not 100% there yet, set up a support call with me and together we’ll make sure you get the support you need to keep moving forward on your healing journey.
+ HOW DO I KNOW WHICH OF YOUR PROGRAMS IS THE RIGHT FIT FOR ME?
Each program is tailored to meet your specific needs. Please check out the [6-Day One-On-One Intensive™]or the 3-Day Intensive, or Private(s) Consultation descriptions on my website to help you narrow down which program is right for you. If you still have questions, send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll help you make the decision.
SO - YOU’VE READ THIS FAR. WHATCHA GONNA DO?
YOU HAVE 3 CHOICES.
OPTION 1: Continue to spend a fortune and hours of your life seeing healthcare providers, who’ll either tell you it’s in your head, prescribe ineffective and possibly harmful treatments (like putting you on birth control as a one-fix-wonder), or pass you on to another provider. (Another waiting room, another stack of forms, another pelvic exam.)
OPTION 2: Do nothing, hope the pain goes away, and keep your whole life on hold. Good luck!
OPTION 3: Take control of your body, your mind, your brain, and your most prized parts - starting now!
