Pelvic floor disorders may affect the ability of pelvic organs including the bladder, uterus and rectum to function normally and are often associated with pregnancy and childbirth. This can lead to problems such as pelvic pressure, pain, constipation, incontinence, urinary tract infections and pain during physical activity or intercourse. This short quiz can help you determine if you may have a pelvic floor disorder.
