You are not alone

Patient Experiences

Many others have been through and are going through what you are experiencing. One of the most common questions I am asked by people is "Do you see many others with this problem?".  I respond that I see people like them all day and every day and that there are even more people out there who are not getting treatment. Estimates for how many people experience pelvic pain in their lives vary, but they are typically between 20-30% of the total population.
Pelvic pain and or incontinence are the kind of problems that are very hard to share with family and friends, but if you do manage to, you are likely to find that someone else either has had something like this or knows someone who does. Therefore, I encourage you to be brave and start that conversation with others you about your experiences, and even more importantly, about the help you found!
