Take Back Control of Your Life.

What are Pelvic Disorders?

More than one in three women suffer from a pelvic disorder. They are among the most common women’s health issues, but also the least talked about. Pelvic disorders are problems that affect women’s pelvic organs: the uterus (or womb), vagina, bladder, rectum, and the muscles that surround and support them. The three most common problems are uterine prolapse, and trouble with bladder and bowel control. If you feel there’s nothing that can be done to help you regain control of your life, don’t give up. There’s hope.
