Are you noticing subtle changes in your ability to control your bladder or bowels? Such as, leaking a little bit when you sneeze, laugh, jump, etc. or feel an almost uncontrollable sense of urgency when it’s time to go.
It’s said that over 50% of all women of any age are having some sort of problem related to pelvic floor dysfunction. Even young girls can be affected and up to 78% of mature women have some sort of pelvic floor dysfunction. What this means is, every woman is at risk, but the good news is, there is lots you can do to avoid or correct these problems.
What are the problems associated with a weak pelvic floor?
- Urinary or fecal incontinence
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Pain with sex
- Pelvic organ prolapse (bladder, uterus, rectum, etc)
- Urinary urgency
- Sexual dysfunction
- Frequent bladder infections
Even if you are not suffering from these problems right now, there may be things that you do every day that encourage weakness in your pelvic floor. For example, did you know that sitting with your legs crossed contributes to imbalance in the pelvic floor and can set you up for problems later on?
