An estimated 12 per cent of women worldwide have one or more severe problems with their pelvic floor, such as painful and painful pelvic floor inflammation, flat or protruding or a lack of normal pelvic floor muscle tone.
It’s often a condition called gas in pelvises, which means the pelvic floor is tight or inflamed.
Gas in pelvic floor can lead to pain, bloating, tightness in the pelvic muscles and a lack in mobility.
“Gas in pelvi’s are very, very, common,” says Dr. Krista Tylka, a clinical psychologist and founder of the Pelvic Floor Disorders Clinic in Toronto.
“It can affect a woman’s life for years, and she may be unable to have children.”
Dr. Tylkea says that women with gas in their pelvias are also at increased risk for pelvic inflammatory disease, a condition in which inflammation in the pelvis can lead in the development of pelvic pain.
Gas is a common cause of pelvic inflammation in women, as is chronic pelvic pain that is a consequence of poor pelvic floor function.
Gas can also occur when women have a history of pelvic floor issues.
The symptoms of gas in pelvic floor problems can include: Pain, bloat, tight, or protrusion of the pelvic area.
