This is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking? This month we explore the implications of this on the pelvic floor, as well as how to reduce pelvic exam anxiety, steps to decrease post-void dribble, and tips for handling overactive bladder symptoms.

This is Bladder Health Month. On my blog each week, I cover a different bladder challenge:
Week 1: Stress incontinence, Urge Incontinence, and Overactive Bladder
Week 2: Bladder Infections, Interstitial Cystitis and Neurogenic Bladder
Week 3: Bladder Cancer
Week 4: Nocturia (waking at night to void)
Most bladder control problems take 6-8 weeks to tackle, so don't delay—advocate for yourself and get the help you need.
Read about the effect of epidural analgesia on pelvic floor dysfunction, especially pain with intercourse: a study found 43.2% had this complication, which is way too high, but pelvic PT can help! Also, read about the myriad effects of menopause, and follow a link to an excellent article on pelvic floor problems in men.
