Talking with Your Doctor


    Women who may be experiencing pelvic floor problems, such as bulging, leaking or difficulty with urination or bowel movements, may be wondering how to bring it up with their health-care provider. This tool will assist you with initiating the conversation with your primary health-care provider, and to making a sensitive topic a little easier to discuss.

    Even if you don’t fill in the answers ahead of time, we feel it is very important to think about the questions, if you think you may have a pelvic floor problem. Remember, if you are leaking or bulging this is not a “normal” part of growing older, and you should engage in a discussion with your health-care provider to determine future treatment options.
