The pelvic floor is made up of muscles and connective tissues to support the organs that live in your pelvis. It is remarkably complex and often cited as the main culprit for a variety of dysfunctions.
More than 32% of women report at least one episode of pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) at some point in their lives.
While it is common to have PFD as a result of pregnancy and childbirth, it is just as common to have pelvic floor challenges not at all related to reproduction.
The most important thing to know about PFD is that there are gentle, targeted, and non-surgical interventions that can drastically improve, if not fully recover, all of your symptoms.
