Pelvic floor disorders occur when the pelvic floor — which includes the muscles, blood vessels, and nerves that support the bladder, rectum, uterus, and vagina — doesn’t work as it should. While aging can make pelvic floor disorders more likely, they are not a normal part of aging.
Types of pelvic floor disorders include:
- Urinary incontinence: loss of bladder control
- Fecal incontinence: loss of bowel control
- Pelvic organ prolapse: bladder or other pelvic organ drops and presses on the walls of the vagina
Pelvic floor disorders can hurt your quality of life and affect your ability to use the restroom. Treatments with experts at University of Miami Health can help you strengthen your pelvic floor and regain control over your bathroom habits.
