The common problems pre and post pregnancy and pre, during, and post menopause
Stress incontinence is when you do an activity or physical movement that puts pressure on your bladder causing you to leak. It can be anything from coughing, sneezing, laughing, running, lifting weights, etc..
Pelvic floor Prolapse
You will feel pressure in your underwear caused by some internal organs lowering. This is usually caused by the pelvic floor muscles becoming weak.
This is a separation of your rectus abdominus (ab muscle) by an abnormal distance. This can cause a bulge in your abdomen and can also cause some low back pain.
Tiny Bladder syndrome
This is when you feel a sudden urge to urinate that is difficult to control. You will have this urgency day and night and can experience some unintentional loss of urine.
Pelvic pain and back pain pre and post pregnancy
Although very common, these can cause a lot of grief especially while your body is changing and while you need to take care of a newborn. These issues can be addressed to help you focus on you and the baby vs your pain/discomfort.
These are all common conditions but does not mean you have to deal with for the rest of your life.
