Bladder Health Month is recognized in November. Throughout the month, health institutions will host "Break Free from PFDs" Local Events across the county to further educate women. The pelvic health topics that will be discussed include: prolapse, incontinence, and other pelvic floor disorders. The events will give women the knowledge and confidence they need to evaluate their own pelvic health and address pelvic health issues with their physicians.
