  • What is a pelvic health disorder?

    The pelvic floor is a bowl-shaped group of muscles, ligaments and connective tissues that support the bowel, bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum. They attach to your pelvic bone in the front and your tailbone in the back. For example, a pelvic floor disorder may occur when women have weakened pelvic muscles or tears in the connective tissue due to excessive strain on the pelvis due to childbirth, repeated strenuous activity, menopause, chronic disease or pelvic surgery.

    • Constipation or infrequent bowel movements
    • Difficulty starting to urinate or emptying the bladder
    • Inability to hold a bowel movement
    • Leakage
    • Painful urination
    • Pelvic pain or muscle spasms
    • Painful intercourse
