Symptoms

Bowel Incontinence
Common symptoms of bowel incontinence can include:
• Diarrhoea
• Constipation
• Rectal Prolapse
• Rectocele and muscle/nerve damage as a result of ageing or giving birth

 

Chronic Pelvic Pain
Chronic pelvic pain is persistent pain in the lower abdominal and/or the vulva, vagina or perineum that lasts for more than 6 months.

 

Constipation
Constipation is persistent infrequent bowel movements or difficult passage of stool. Whilst it is normal to experience occasional constipation, chronic constipation can have negative impact on a person’s lifestyle.

 

Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition when the muscles and ligaments supporting female pelvic organs weaken and cause pelvic organs including the bladder, uterus and the small or large bowel to drop lower in the pelvis, creating a bulge in the vagina, uterus, rectum or any combination of the  above.

 

Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control. Urinary incontinence ranges from occasional small leakages to uncontrollable sudden and strong urges to urinate.

Urinary incontinence can be temporary or persistent.  Temporary urinary incontinence is caused by certain foods and drinks that stimulate your bladder or some common medical conditions such as urinary tract infection or constipation.

Persistent urinary incontinence is caused by underlying physical problems or changes, such as:

• Pregnancy and childbirth
• Ageing
• Menopause
• Enlarged prostate
• Prostate cancer
• Neurological disorders that may lead to nerve damage.
