As women get older, muscles begin to weaken. That includes delicate muscles that support your bladder, bowel and uterus. This can lead to unpleasant situations, like a leak when you laugh or discomfort during intimacy. Childbirth, heavy lifting and chronic straining are all causes of weak pelvic muscles.
If you’re worried about your pelvic health, you aren’t alone. Nearly one in three women experience issues with urinary incontinence (and one in ten men). And those numbers rise as we get older to nearly half of all seniors.
Even though these occurrences may create socially uncomfortable situations, they don’t need to disrupt your life. The pelvis floor specialists at Bon Secours are here to help men and women like you regain control of your bowels and bladder. We’ll talk you through every surgical and nonsurgical option to help you decide what procedure is right for you.
