This site is dedicated to providing information on female pelvic floor dysfunction. Significant effort has been taken to ensure the information is presented in a manner that is simple to follow and easily understood. Female pelvic floor dysfunction involves bladder problems, urinary incontinence, genital prolapse and faecal incontinence.
These problems are very common in the community with nearly 50% of women who have had children experiencing prolapse and or incontinence.
Before you can understand the abnormal female pelvic floor you must be clear on the normal pelvic floor anatomy. To aid you in this, these pages have been dedicated to Your Pelvic Floor, Vaginal Prolapse and Urinary Stress Incontinence. The causes of these problems and how they can be prevented and treated will also be discussed.
I invite you to please explore the following areas of the website via the top menu or below:
I hope these pages are helpful to you in understanding female pelvic floor problems, but it is important to realize that these are only guides and should never replace the value of consultation with your own doctor. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to book a consultation.
The illustrations used to highlight these problems were drawn by Stephen Francis in consultation with myself and are covered by copyright.
