Pelvic floor dysfunction is prevalent among women and it is not just an issue related to the older population. It is common in young women too. This is partly because some women don’t even know they’re experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction, like my friend who gets up to go to the bathroom five times a night. Drinking a lot of water doesn’t mean you should expect to go to the bathroom more than once a night. Of course we’ve all heard of the leakage that occurs on coughing, sneezing, or laughing too hard after childbirth but this shouldn’t be something that is accepted as part of life from that point on.
