Pelvic health disorders are common. Nearly 1 in 3 women experience some form of symptoms, including incontinence, frequency and urgency of urination, pelvic pressure or heaviness, pelvic pain, and sexual problems.
These conditions may cause women to feel socially isolated, experience sexual inhibition, or fear making social or travel plans. Careers and personal relationships are often affected.
Many women don't seek care because they don't know that treatment is available, or think the condition is too minor or embarrassing to pursue. Many feel they have to "live with it," buying pads or relying on medications that may have side effects.
Mayo Clinic Health System brings together professionals from a variety of specialties to work with you to evaluate your problem and design a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms.
