PODCAST | I'm a Female Experiencing Discomfort in My Pelvic Region. What Do I Need To Know?

Have to cross your legs with the hopes you won’t leak when you laugh, cough or sneeze? Have to race to the bathroom to make it in time before you need a change of clothes? Does something feel lax or out of place in your pelvic region after physical activity or standing for long periods of time? Pelvic floor disorders, which occur when the muscles or connective tissue in the pelvis do not work as they should, affect one in five women in the United States.

Urogynecologists, like Dr. Jeff Fahy, are experts in the female pelvic organs and pelvic floor. He provides comprehensive care through preventive and corrective therapies as well as experienced diagnosis and treatment of related issues with minimally-invasive surgical and non-surgical interventions.
