When to Contact Your Provider About Your Pelvic Floor Health

Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when your pelvic floor muscles tighten at times when they should relax. This may cause you to experience:

  • Frequent need to use the restroom
  • Constipation
  • Leaking stool or urine (incontinence)
  • Painful urination
  • Unexplained lower back pain
  • Ongoing pain in the pelvic region
  • Problems inserting tampons

These issues can happen for a variety of reasons, including traumatic injuries to the pelvic area, pregnancy, overuse, pelvic surgery, aging, or obesity. Pelvic floor dysfunction may also be a hereditary condition that runs in your family.

If you’re concerned about your pelvic floor health, speak with your Women’s Health Arizona provider.
