If your pelvic floor health is strong, your pelvic organs have the proper support. However, if your pelvic muscles are weak, it could cause problems, such as incontinence or prolapse.
A weak pelvic floor is something many women experience as a result of age, childbirth, constipation, and pelvic injuries or trauma. Your provider can make recommendations to help reduce any discomfort you feel.
