More than half of all women will experience pelvic floor dysfunction in their lifetime. These conditions range from inconvenient to life-threatening and should be taken seriously.

Pelvic floor dysfunction is caused by weak pelvic muscles or a tear in the connective tissues. It can cause bladder control problems, bowel control problems, and pelvic organ prolapse. These conditions can be treated by a urogynecologist – a specialist in female pelvic medicine.
