Pelvic floor weakness, pelvic floor depression
The musculature of the pelvic floor ensures its stability, so that all organs in it, such as uterus and bladder, maintain their position. In addition, the holding apparatus allows us to lift and carry objects without losing urine or stool. If the muscles are weakened, the organs can no longer be kept sufficiently in their original position. There is a pelvic floor depression, which is often expressed in the uterine sinking or bladder subsidence (cystocele).
Pelvic floor weakness leads to loss of control
The most common problem is the so-called bladder weakness. Normally, the pelvic floor muscle tightens reflexively when sneezing or coughing, so that no urine or stool penetrates.
In a pelvic floor weakness, this is no longer possible. When coughing, sneezing, laughing or lifting heavy loads involuntarily lost a few drops of urine.
A pelvic floor weakness manifests itself with different symptoms
A pelvic floor weakness usually leads to a pelvic floor depression and can cause a number of complaints, which not only implies the involuntary discharge of urine:
- Abdominal pains
- stress incontinence
- urge incontinence
- Uterine prolapse right up to the incident
- bubble reduction
- fecal incontinence
Many women are still ashamed of their bladder weakness
Basically, it is normal for the pelvic floor to lose some stability over time. In old age and in women who have given birth to hereditary connective tissue weakness or children, but the pelvic floor weakness increases sharply.
Especially women over 50 years are affected by the pelvic floor weakness, every second even from a bladder weakness. Many suffer from the situation of being unable to keep their urine and withdraw from sports activities. Sometimes it is so embarrassing for those affected that they completely withdraw from the social environment.
