Breaking free from pelvic disorders

Have you been suffering in silence with a pelvic floor disorder (PFD)?

Are you looking for answers to questions you’ve been too embarrassed to ask?

You are invited to a free educational event aimed to help women understand PFDs and empower them to pursue individualized solutions for improved quality of life.

Tuesday, November 10, 6 PM
Longview Farm House

Town & Country, MO 63141

A woman’s pelvic floor is a set of muscles, ligaments and connective tissue in the lowest part of the pelvis. It provides support for her internal organs, including the bowel, bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum. A PFD occurs when women have weakened pelvic muscles or tears in the connective tissue, which may cause bladder control problems, bowel control problems or pelvic organ prolapse.

Approximately one in three women experience some form of PFD, and many undertreat their condition.

Washington University specialists Jerry Lowder, MD, MSC, Chiara Ghetti, MD, MSC, and a physical therapist will answer questions about PFDs, causes and the treatments available.

The event is free, but registration is required. Please call 314-747-0972. Light snacks and beverages provided. Sponsored in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Boston Scientific.
