Pelvic pain is a real problem for women worldwide. Whether it is just a little bit of pee, some discomfort during intercourse, or pressure that you push through, as women, we are taught these are just typical signs of aging. But the reality is these things are totally reversible and fixable if you have the right tools to set yourself, and your pelvic floor, up for success.
