ABOUT PELVIC FLOOR AND VAGINAL HEALTH
The pelvic floor is the underlying support for your bladder, uterus, rectum, and vagina. These vital organs all depend on a strong, healthy pelvic floor to keep them where they need to be for proper functioning. But the strength and elasticity of your pelvic floor can be compromised by childbirth, weight fluctuations, strain, aging, decreased estrogen from menopause or estrogen-positive breast cancer treatments, and other health factors.
The loss of bladder control is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough, sneeze or exercise to having an urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong you simply can't get to a toilet in time.
Though it occurs more often as people get older, urinary incontinence isn't an inevitable consequence of aging. Urinary leakage affects between 30% and 40% of people over 65 years of age*
The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), The International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists report that out of the approximately 64 million post-menopausal women in the United States, 50% to 70% will experience symptoms of Vaginal Atrophy (the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to reduced estrogen production).
Pelvic floor health issues are hard to talk about. Women often feel embarrassed and guilty, and tend to shy away from intimate conversations due to low self esteem or lack of confidence. So, women often suffer in silence.
