Overview

As women age, their muscles get weaker, including those that support our bladder, bowel and uterus. That can lead to some uncomfortable moments. Like leakage when you laugh or pain during intercourse. Weaker muscles occur most commonly as a result of childbirth, heavy lifting and chronic straining.

Nearly one in three women experience issues with urinary incontinence, as do about 10% of men. The numbers rise with age with nearly half of all seniors experiencing bladder or bowel incontinence.   

The good news is that these issues don’t need to disrupt your lifestyle. At Mercy Health, our pelvic floor specialists can help women — and men — regain bladder and bowel control. We will walk you through all your surgical and nonsurgical options to determine what pelvic floor treatment is best for you.
