If you have a pelvic floor condition, you may have one or more of the following symptoms.

  • Protrusion of a tissue through the vagina or rectum (prolapse)
  • Pelvic pressure
  • Urinary incontinence/loss of urine
  • Urinary urgency/frequency
  • Fecal incontinence/involuntary loss of stool
  • Difficulty in passing urine or stool
  • Painful urination

Because there is a perceived stigma related to the symptoms of pelvic floor disorders, many people are reluctant or embarrassed to discuss them, even with their doctors. You do not need to suffer in silence. There are a number of treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, that can improve or completely correct the problem that is causing your symptoms.


For more information or to make a confidential appointment with one of our physicians, please call the Integrated Pelvic Health Program at 312-926-4747.
