The pelvic floor acts as a basket of muscles extending from the tailbone to the pubic bone. This basket supports the abdominal contents and provides stability for movement. The pelvic floor needs to contract and relax appropriately for normal bowel, bladder and sexual function. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is not a topic that men often talk about. It can affect your quality of life through bowel, bladder, testicular and erectile dysfunction. You may have been learning to live with your discomfort, adapted to the inconvenience, and have been left feeling hopeless or stuck with your symptoms.
Men’s Health is important to us. We want to improve the quality of your life. Often the function of the male pelvic floor can be an indicator of heart health. On average, 38.8 months elapse between the onset of an untreated pelvic floor dysfunction in men and the onset of a cardiovascular event.
