Basic Facts about Pelvic Health for Women

Pelvic floor dysfunction impacts 1 in 3 women over the course of their lifetime.
The pelvic floor can be weakened by the following:

  • supporting the weight of the uterus during pregnancy

  • vaginal childbirth, which may overstretch the muscles

  • the pressure of obesity

  • chronic constipation or straining 

  • constant coughing

  • some forms of surgery that require cutting the muscles

  • lower levels of estrogen after menopause

  • pelvic floor muscle tension caused by painful periods or endometriosis

“We’ve all heard it: To have good pelvic floor health, you need to do your Kegels. But if you came into a clinic with a bicep muscle that was stuck in place, your doctor wouldn't tell you to go home and do 300 bicep curls. The same is true for the pelvic floor. It takes a professional person who can evaluate those muscles and can tell if the muscles are strong or weak, if they need more endurance, if they need to be relaxed, or if there's trigger points.”
