Pelvic and Sexual Health at the Drexel Center for Women's Health
The pelvic floor is a system of muscles and connective tissue at the base of the pelvis. Pelvic floor muscles are responsible for providing support to the organs in the pelvis including the intestines, bladder, and uterus, and they are responsible for maintaining urinary and fecal continence.
Pelvic floor disorders in women can include urinary issues such as: overactive bladder (urinary urgency frequency and/or leakage), interstitial cystitis, or urinary incontinence, as well as conditions such as pelvic pain, vulvodynia, bowel disorders (irritable bowel syndrome/IBS), fecal incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
