1. You Experience 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 normal or something that you should have to live with the rest of your life. If you have been told before “Just go do some kegals,” this is more than 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.
