Women’s health


What is it ?

The life cycle of women can bring its share of small inconveniences! While pregnancy and childbirth can lead to bladder weakness, menopause can increase vaginal discomfort. Because pelvic health evolves over time and is an essential component of women’s health, it is important to manage the signs and symptoms of certain ailments before they become very uncomfortable.

What are the causes?

From the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles to the thinning of vaginal mucosa, pelvic health sometimes shows the most unpleasant signs with direct consequences on women's quality of life. These inconveniences can have different causes:

Pregnancy

Most women experience small bladder weakness during pregnancy. This is called "stress incontinence" because of the pressure exerted on the bladder by the increasingly large uterus. The muscles and tissues that make up the perineum have a certain capacity for support, which becomes limited when the weight resting on them becomes too great. Muscles and tissues can then become too stretched and weak.

Childbirth

The stretching of vaginal tissue during childbirth can cause damage to it. This new damaged tissue may then lead to some urinary incontinence, which varies in frequency and circumstances.

Menopause

At the time of menopause, the decrease in estrogen production leads to a thinning of the vaginal mucosa and a loss of elasticity and hydration. This can result in irritation, discomfort, susceptibility to urinary tract infections and increased pain.

Medical conditions

Treatments for certain medical conditions such as chemotherapy and medication to treat breast cancer, endometriosis or fibroids can reduce estrogen levels and result in changes and drying of the vaginal wall.
