Are you one of the nearly 24 percent of women in the United States who are affected by a pelvic health disorder?
Pelvic health issues are more common than you might think. More than 40 percent of women between the ages of 60 and 79 and at least half of women age 80 and older experience some kind of pelvic disorder. But it isn’t just a “change of life” issue; childbirth and cesarean sections contribute to pelvic health issues for women in their 20s and 30s, especially those who have given birth to more than one child. Other pelvic health conditions, such as excessive bleeding and endometriosis, affect younger women as well.
Any woman challenged with a pelvic health disorder knows that these issues can easily affect quality of life. What many women may not know is that these issues are treatable. New therapies, medications and procedures offer hope to women currently coping with their pelvic health issues alone.
If you believe you are experiencing one or more of the most common pelvic health issues listed below, call our women’s health nurse navigator at (502) 899-6310.
