PELVIC FLOOR DISORDERS

What Are They?

  • Pelvic floor disorders occur when the muscles and tissue of the pelvic floor and surrounding pelvic organs become weakened or damaged. The most common types of pelvic floor disorders affecting women are pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, and fecal incontinence. These problems can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life. Click here for more info.

Who Do They Affect?

  • Pelvic floor disorders are common and growing; they affect:

    • 10% of women ages 20 to 39

    • 27% of women ages 40 to 59

    • 37% of women ages 60 to 79, and nearly

    • 50% of women age 80 or older.

What Are Pessaries?

  • Pessaries are intra-vaginal prosthetics that help treat certain pelvic floor disorders without surgery. They come in 100+ shapes and sizes and have not changed much in 50+ years. They are quite effective when properly fitted, but fitting is all based on trial/error and is not always successful.

  • With currently available pessaries:

    • up to a third will fail the pessary fitting process, and

    • half will stop using them within a year.
