I bet that got your attention ;). Last week I was up in Portland, Maine visiting my friend Susan Ramsey, who is co-founder of the Pelvic Floor Rehab Center of New England. I learned a lot about a subject people just don't want to talk about and that's problems related to the Pelvic Floor. What kind of problems? Could be bed wetting, pain during sex, bowel or urinary leakage
Here are some surprising facts. 25%-41% of female athletes from age 16 on are now developing urinary incontinence. One study in the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics states that 95.5% of the athletes who were leaking in their study had never discussed their condition with a health professional.
Millions suffer in silence even though there are solutions that can help. Susan calls herself the Sex, Pee and Poop Lady to bring a little welcome humor and awareness around a topic that makes many people uncomfortable. Check out the video.
