November 2015:

Barbara H., 51, Flagstaff, Arizona, was experiencing the symptoms of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). She was having involuntary release of urine when she laughed, coughed, sneezed, played tennis and when lifting anything heavy. At first she hoped the symptoms were something temporary and then she starting wearing absorbent pads. Finally, her SUI became so bothersome that she made an appointment with an urologist.

Her urologist advised Barbara treatments for SUI include pelvic floor muscle exercises, lifestyle changes, new medications and medical devices. The doctor also pointed out that for many women those options are not enough and they choose to have transvaginal mesh or sling surgery.

Barbara certainly wanted to avoid surgery and she did not wish to add taking a prescription with side effects to her health regimen. She chose the more conservative option of pelvic floor exercises to strengthen her pelvic floor.

September 2015:

Angela G., 26, Raleigh, North Carolina, gave birth to her first child, daughter Ashley, in March 2015. Angela experienced a relatively uncomplicated pregnancy though she did experience bladder leaks, and she had a spontaneous vaginal delivery.

Angela’s OB-GYN suggested that during her postpartum recovery she start doing Kegel exercises two weeks after giving birth to facilitate the healing of her pelvic floor muscles that had been stretched and weakened by her pregnancy and delivery.

OB-GYNs often recommend Kegel exercises during pregnancy and the postpartum period to promote perineal tissue healing and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Kegel exercises help the pelvic floor muscles return to healthy strength as well as increasing urinary control and vaginal toning.

Case Study
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

Pelvic organ prolapse is part of a group of conditions known as pelvic floor disorders that also includes urinary and bowel incontinence caused by failure of the pelvic muscles and connective tissue.

  • Pelvic organ prolapse affects up to 50% of women after the age of 50.¹
  • The most common causes of pelvic organ prolapse are pregnancy, labor, and childbirth.¹
  • Other causes of POP include obesity, respiratory issues, constipation, pelvic cancers, and hysterectomies.²
  • Approximately 10% of women throughout their lifetime will have pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery.³

January 2015

Sally D., 62, Boston, Massachusetts, the post-menopausal mother of three adult children, was diagnosed with a second-degree prolapsed uterus. Her gynecologist explained that in second degree prolapse of the uterus, the uterus drops down into the vagina opening. This is usually caused by the weakening of the connective tissue and ligaments supporting the uterus. In Sally’s case, the doctor told her that giving birth to three children and also having experienced menopause were significant factors in the development of her prolapse.

The doctor recommended that Sally have a hysterectomy and did not suggest other options. Since she was experiencing back pain, constipation and painful sexual intercourse with bleeding, Sally knew she had to do something that would improve or correct the prolapse but she wanted to avoid having surgery if at all possible.
