Many women suffer needlessly from pain or embarrassment caused by disorders of the pelvic floor (the ligaments, muscles, and tissues supporting a woman’s internal organs), such as urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control) and pelvic organ prolapse (dropping or sagging of organs). Women don’t need to live with these disorders and symptoms, there is help.
