Pelvic Health

Pelvic issues can, and often do, have a big impact on a woman’s lifestyle. The pain and discomfort interfere with work and take the fun out of leisure time. Symptoms range from inconvenient and embarrassing to painful or even debilitating. They have a negative impact on a woman’s lifestyle and can be both challenging to diagnose and difficult to treat.

At Frye Regional Medical Center, our Pelvic Health program’s multidisciplinary team works with each patient to understand how pelvic issues are affecting her medically and emotionally. Our goal is to provide a care plan that blends traditional medicine with treatment options across a spectrum of services. We provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment of pelvic pain that may be caused by fibroids, endometriosis, or organ prolapse. We also evaluate and treat incontinence disorders. Interventions may include physical therapy, pelvic ultrasound, and surgery, as well as an education
and fitness-oriented pelvic health program.

Real Solutions for Real Issues

Nearly every woman experiences some form of pelvic issue in her lifetime, whether it’s discomfort, pain, bleeding, frequent urination, or incontinence. Young women may develop endometriosis and uncontrollable menstrual bleeding as early as their teens. Women of all ages may have problems with incontinence or pelvic prolapse, especially if they have had more than one child. Yet many of the patients that come through our doors have been told by friends, or even by their family physician, that their condition couldn’t be treated.

These women believe incontinence is “just part of aging” or that heavy bleeding “just happens to some girls.” As a result, although pelvic health disorders affect nearly one-quarter of U.S. women, many end up suffering in silence. At Frye Regional Medical Center, our Pelvic Health Program is dedicated to helping these women and debunking the myths about female pelvic conditions.
