Bladder and pelvic health
Over time, childbirth, repeated heavy lifting, or even chronic constipation can cause your bladder and pelvic floor to change or weaken.
Common bladder and pelvic floor conditions include:
- Urinary incontinence: not being able to control urine
- Fecal incontinence: not being able to control stool
- Pelvic organ prolapse: when the pelvic organ(s) drop from their normal position
- Other bladder disorders
