Pelvic floor (and other bladder or bowel control) problems are not normal. They can be treated, better managed and in many cases – cured.
If you have a pelvic floor (or bladder or bowel control) problem, diagnosis, assessment and treatment is key to getting back in control. This is best carried out by a qualified continence professional.
For most people, a good starting point is to visit your doctor, who will be able to refer you to the most suitable continence professional.
If you aren’t comfortable speaking to your doctor a good alternative is to speak to a continence nurse advisor on the National Continence Helpline (1800 33 00 66). This free and confidential service can provide you with information and advice to get you back in control.
