Useful Links

Generally speaking, I’ve found it hard to find much in the way of support for people with pelvic floor dysfunction. I certainly haven’t come across any UK charities or helplines for prolapse. I’m pretty sure that’s because there aren’t any. I have a few thoughts about why that might be. Stigma? Gender inequality? But that’s for another day.

In the meantime, here are a few links I’ve pulled together which may be useful. Please let me know if there are others and I will try to add them. It’s worth noting that I have no association with any of these organisations:

Information and Support

Fitness

I know from my own experience that getting back to fitness with pelvic floor dysfunction is something else that’s really hard to navigate. Many fitness professionals have little or no knowledge of this area and you can end up doing nothing for fear of making things worse.

Pelvic Floor Rehab

I am a big fan of Squeezy. It’s an NHS app which will remind you to do your pelvic floor exercises by sending a notification to your phone. It’s very persistent so it’s fairly effective! It also has a directory of pelvic health physios so you can find one near you, which I would wholeheartedly recommend.
