As we’ve all heard in the peri-menopausal and menopausal age our hormones fluctuate and oestrogen levels decline. Dietary changes and exercise are important to help manage your symptoms and maintain your cardiac and bone health, but what about your pelvic health?
1 in 3 women will have pelvic floor dysfunction at some point in their lifetime.
Changing hormones could cause reduced integrity of the pelvic floor muscles and pelvic fascia leading to symptoms such as
- Intercourse pain
- Low back and hip pain
Many of these pelvic health issues are easy to recognise, but how would you know if you had a pelvic organ prolapse?
