Episode Summary

At least 1 in 2 women have some level of struggle with their pelvic floor throughout their lifetime. Despite these staggering numbers, pelvic floor dysfunction and urinary incontinence are topics you do not hear about often. MaryEllen Reider is on a mission to remove the taboo from this topic and open up the conversation about regaining pelvic floor health naturally.

Dismissing Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Myths

MaryEllen wants you to know that just because something is common, it doesn’t make it normal. Cofounder of YarLap, a wellness device used to treat urinary incontinence and improve sexual performance and experience through muscle control, MaryEllen is here to set the record straight about pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.

The Importance of Talking About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

The traditional medical system has normalized pelvic pain or dysfunction, and it is time to open up the conversation around early warning signs, symptoms, and how your pelvic floor muscles work so that you can gain the tools you need to support your body. Your pelvic floor muscles affect everything from your orgasms to bladder leakage and back pain, so it is important to understand this complex and internal group of muscles. When your pelvic floor muscles are strong, the rest of your body can function optimally.

Your Body Knows Best

MaryEllen stresses the importance of seeking out a doctor when you feel that something isn’t quite right. If you know what to look out for, you can enter your 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond with a strong, stable, and efficient pelvic floor. Everything from the difficulty of Kegels to pregnancy and peeing yourself is on the table today as MaryEllen breaks the stigma and opens up the pelvic floor conversation.
