What Can Happen to the Pelvic Floor:
- Sexual discomfort
- Erectile Dysfunction
The human body is a beautiful creation. The way we move, speak, eat, and even breathe is controlled by the ever so intricate muscular system.
We can control most of the muscle movements of our body – but not all.
There are muscle groups that are under our conscious control are called voluntary muscles. Whilst those we do not have conscious control of are called involuntary muscles.
Although the pelvic floor is a part of the body we don’t see and is very small, they are voluntary muscles. According to many studies , we can control (and train) our pelvic floor just like our leg or arm muscles, for example.
When you are unable to control (or coordinate) the muscles of your pelvic floor, this is known as pelvic floor dysfunction.
Dysfunction manifests itself in several ways. Some of the symptoms include urinary or faecal issues, bowel strains or constipation, pain, as well as muscle spasms and pressure in the pelvic region.
Some women also experience extreme discomfort during sexual intercourse. For men, on the other hand, prostate problems and erectile dysfunction are some of the more common issues caused by a weakened pelvic floor and is most of the time due to surgery in the area.
Although the exact causes of pelvic floor dysfunction are still undetermined, many factors are known to weaken the muscles of the pelvic floor. Some of the reasons include advancing age, obesity, pregnancy and childbirth, overuse of pelvic muscles (common in those with constipation), ans menopause, as well as injury to the pelvic region (E.G. a vehicle accident).
Another common risk factor is prostate surgery for men. When men who undergo radiation therapy or surgery for prostate cancer have weakened pelvic floor muscles as a result of these treatments. It’s a common side-effect, but, as with many of these conditions, it can be effectively treated.
While pelvic floor disorders can affect people of all ages, it’s necessary to differentiate between conditions that affect the younger population and the problems that are more common in older age.
The muscles that are in in our pelvic floor are the strongest, and somewhere iin or around our 20s, after which these muscles start to deteriorate.
Do you leak urine when you cough, sneeze, or engage in sports activities? Do you have a frequent need to get to the bathroom quickly? Have you lost control of or have difficulty emptying your bladder or bowel? Do you refrain from intimacy with your partner?
Over 200 million people worldwide are affected by incontinence. Due to factors such as the body ‘s normal aging process, childbirth, menopause, or obesity, the pelvic floor muscles weaken. Creating trouble supporting the pelvic organs. These factors directly contribute to urinary incontinence.
