About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles found in the floor of your pelvis. Pelvic floor dysfunction is the inability to correctly relax and coordinate your pelvic floor muscles to have a bowel movement. Symptoms include constipation, straining to defecate, having urine or stool leakage and experiencing a frequent need to pee. If you’re a woman, you may also feel pain during sex.

- Constipation, or a straining pain during your bowel movements

- Leaking stool or urine (incontinence)
