Women with disabilities face the same pelvic health issues as the general female population. On top of that, some disabilities affect the pelvic floor more than others. It can be difficult for both women and their physicians to decide if a pelvic floor disorder is as a result of her disability, a secondary condition, or just because she is a female! The links below describe some common pelvic health problems women with disabilities may face. Our Pelvic Floor Disorders page has more information on problems faced by all women.
