Overview

One out of every three women has a pelvic floor disorder, but nobody is talking about it.


Uncontrolled release of urine, feces, and gas. A visible bulge in your vagina. A cervix that sticks out of your vaginal opening. Sticking your fingers into your vagina or butthole to remove poop. Painful, embarrassing sex. The symptoms of pelvic floor disorders are about as taboo as conversation topics get.


As a woman, you can't afford to be uninformed. Pelvic floor disorders are more common than breast cancer and have a major impact on your quality of life. The biggest risk factors are giving birth and getting old. Do you know what symptoms to watch out for, or what to do about it?


It is time to start talking. Kegels Are Not Going to Fix This takes a look at the burden of pelvic floor disorders from a personal and global perspective. After reading this book, you will understand your pelvic floor and how to care for it. You will be armed with information and language to discuss your symptoms and treatment options with your doctor. You will see that you are not alone.


Pelvic floor disorders are an experience shared by women around the world and throughout human history. Every woman and women's health care provider should read this book.
