Many people think that only women after childbirth have the problem of pelvic floor muscle relaxation.
Although pregnancy and childbirth are the two largest causes, chronic abdominal pressure, impaired structural function due to obesity, decreased estrogen levels, and even chronic cough may also trigger pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. This is a problem that women of any age and status may encounter.
A series of problems that can result when the pelvic floor muscles relax:
1. Stress urinary incontinence: Involuntary urine flow occurs during physical activity, including exercise, sneezing, and coughing.
2. Urge incontinence: The sudden urge to urinate, resulting in an involuntary flow of urine.
3. Mixed urinary incontinence: Both stress urinary incontinence and urge urinary incontinence exist.
4. Prolapse of pelvic floor organs: bladder or bowel, uterine prolapse to the V tract, severe prolapse into the vagina.
5. Decreased feeling of sexual intercourse.
With age, decreased estrogen levels, chronic cough, and constipation, it is possible to cause pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and affect the experience of sexual life. Even nulliparous women are in great need of strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. After a period of training, women's pelvic floor muscle contraction strength and time will increase significantly. This training increases female sexual sensitivity and pleasure
