The pelvic floor in women
In women, the pelvic floor ensures that the bladder, uterus, vagina and intestines stay where they're supposed to. Pregnancy, childbirth, obesity and age all lead to a gradual weakening of the pelvic floor.
What are the signs of a weak pelvic floor?
The first sign is often slight urinary incontinence. However, this is easily treatable with targeted exercises. In severe cases, the uterus, bladder or intestine can sink lower into the pelvis. This can lead to urinary or faecal incontinence.
