Pelvic floor disorders are health conditions that cause physical discomfort and often limit activities women once enjoyed, from exercise to sexual activity. These conditions occur when the muscles within the pelvic cavity weaken or become injured. The pelvic floor muscles form a “hammock” across the opening of a woman’s pelvis, holding the uterus, bladder and rectum in place. When these muscles are not functioning properly, women may experience problems such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
Pelvic health conditions can have a major impact on a woman’s life.
