Learn About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

We don’t all always get the help we need.  In fact, quite often, certain conditions are discussed only in whispers, or often not at all.  Pelvic floor dysfunction is one of them. 

 Anything to do with bodily functions can be embarrassing and hard to share. Those impacted often suffer in silence, not seeking treatment or other help. Unfortunately, they are simply unaware of the medical and/or behavioral intervention that can often be useful, and they know nothing about the host of products on the market that can mediate the impact of this condition, allowing those affected to live a happier, more confident life. Knowing that options exist is critical.

 According to the Cleveland Clinic, "pelvic floor dysfunction is a common condition where you're unable to correctly relax and coordinate the muscles in your pelvic floor to urinate or to have a bowel movement."  Clearly, this is a concern.  

 Many people wonder about the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction. Some may include obesity, pregnancy, traumatic injuries or even simply aging. In fact, the condition is also considered hereditary, so if your parents suffer - you may as well.

 The side effects of this condition are serious  Women women who suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction often experience painful sex while men may also experience erectile dysfunction.

 If you are wondering if you suffer from this condition first, consider the symptoms. They include having to strain for a bowel movement, leakage (both stool and urine), constipation, and even the need to urinate more often than usual. Of course, these issues could be present with a variety of conditions. So,  you find yourself suffering you should visit your physician as soon as possible. He or she can help you understand the underlying cause and assist you in determining how to handle your particular medical situation.

 The good news is that if you are diagnosed with this, treatments are available. Behavior modification (relaxation), biofeedback, physical therapy, and certain medications have all proven successful.  That said until you resolve this issue, the side effects can be incredibly embarrassing, especially leakage - which can ruin clothing furniture, cars seats and more. Thankfully there is a broad array of protective products available on the marketplace. These can help safeguard your property and dignity as you get the treatment you need.

Don’t suffer in silence. Take control of your health and your life and pursue the medical attention you need and deserve!
