    GPs should refer patients to SGH Pelvic Floor Disorder Service for treatment.

    Overview


    Pelvic floor disorders are a group of conditions that affect both men and women, and can involve more than one pelvic organ. This can lead to problems ranging from leakage of urine or faeces, to difficulty passing urine or stools.

    Causes

    • Childbirth
    • Previous surgery around the anal region
    • Neurological diseases
    • Trauma to the anal region 
    • Congenital disorders
    • Pelvic organ prolapse
    • Inflammatory bowel disease
    • Irritable bowel syndrome

    Symptoms

    • Soiling of underwear with stools while sleeping or before reaching the toilet
    • Leakage of urine when laughing, coughing or sneezing
    • A feeling of dragging or heaviness in the pelvic area

    Diagnosis

    As multiple pelvic organs can be affected at any one time, a multidisciplinary approach is essential to assess and treat patients in order to provide the best outcomes.
