1. You are experiencing any kind of urinary leakage
Yes, after having kids and as you get older urinary leakage can be very common; however, that doesn’t make it something that you should have to live with for the rest of your life. If you have been told before, “Just go do some Kegals” this is likely not enough. Every person is different and has had different previous experiences leading to their current symptoms. A pelvic floor physical therapist can assess you as an individual and develop the appropriate plan to address your symptoms and eliminate your leakage for good.

2. You have pain with intercourse
There are many different reasons why someone may have pain with intercourse. It could be due to previous childbirth experiences, trauma, decreased lubrication, dermatological issues, painful scar tissue, decreased mobility of the lower back or hips, hormones, neural sensitivity, and more! Pain in any part of the body is extremely complex and many factors affect it; this is no different. The guidance of a physical therapist is very valuable so you can learn strategies to decrease this pain and improve your quality of life.

3. You are planning on having a baby in the near future
Preventative PT can be for your pelvic floor too! Pregnancy is an extremely rewarding as well as challenging time for your body. Why not prepare it in the best possible way that you can? By coming to see a pelvic floor PT before you become pregnant, you can learn an abundance of information about your pelvic floor. Your pelvic floor PT will help you develop an individualized strengthening and mobility program to address any areas of weakness and set yourself up for a successful postpartum journey.
