1 out of 4 women suffer from pelvic floor disorders. These problems include losing control of bladder and bowel function and loss of vaginal support that results in a bulge from the vagina. Living with these problems can hurt one’s quality of life, not only by compromising bladder and bowel function, but also by limiting sexual enjoyment, and social engagement. The Pelvic Floor Disorders Network of BC is a group of providers dedicated to treating these problems.
Our goal is to create a clear and easy pathway to treatment.

Normal Pelvic Floor Functions
Your pelvic floor refers to the organs and structures that support them in the pelvis. These organs include the bladder and bowel, as well as the organs of reproduction, including the vagina, uterus, tubes and ovaries. Normal functioning of these organs is dependent on normal support through the ligaments and muscles of the pelvis. Before you can understand dysfunction of the pelvic floor, it is important to understand normal function.
