Menopause

dreamstime_xs_26354933Menopause can occur from as early as 35years to 55 years.  Women who have a history of mal-positioned or a prolapsed uterus (painful periods in adolescence, infertility, headaches with menstruation, lower back pain, painful intercourse) and have poor vascularity will experience a worsening and aggravation of the usual menopausal symptoms.

One of the most talked about problems today in media advertising is “LBL” Light bladder leakage.

With the amount of writing on this topic it is said that almost 1 in 3 women over the age of 35 suffer from LBL” light bladder leakage.  It is the inability of a person to control the passage of urine, due to a displaced uterus and weak pelvic floor muscles, which can be caused by pregnancy or menopause. Changes occur in the strength of the muscle and ligaments the hold the bladder and its sphincter. “LBL” can have triggers like physical exertion, coughing or sneezing. The intensity of the light bladder leakage can also be related to stress.
