Four Common Pelvic Health Problems Affecting American Women

Around 33 percent of American women will be suffering a pelvic health disorder by the age of 60 years, according to a report released by the National Women’s Health Resource Center. Pelvic conditions can have a great impact on a woman’s quality of life affecting her emotional, physical, mental, social, and even economic wellbeing.

While there may be numerous conditions which may cause pelvic problems, the study found that the following are the four most common disorders affecting women.


Based on a study participated by Italian women, around 40 percent of women between the ages of 45 to 60 years experience menorrhagia or abnormal heavy menstrual periods. This condition is the most common type of abnormal bleeding which originates from the uterus. A menstrual period may be considered heavy if it produces enough blood to soak an absorbent pad every hour for a number of consecutive hours.

Other indications that a woman may be experiencing menorrhagia include bleeding at night which may require getting up in order to replace the pads, passing of big blood clots during her period, and a period which may last more than seven days. Menorhaggia, in severe cases, may lead to anemia and may also be very disruptive of a woman’s sleep and daily activities.

Uterine Fibroids (Fibroid Tumors)

By the age of 50, around 70 percent white women and 80 percent African-American women may be suffering from uterine fibroids, although this disorder may surface as early as in the 30’s and 40’s. Uterine fibroids or fibroid tumors are non-cancerous growths that may develop in the walls of the woman’s uterus. These tumors develop from normal uterus muscle cells that may grow abnormally, eventually forming a benign tumor.

In most cases, uterine fibroids do not cause any problems to a woman. Some women, however, may experience symptoms such as pressure in the abdominal area, pain in the lower back, heavy periods, painful sex, and may have a hard time getting pregnant.

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)

It has been reported that almost one-fourth of American adult women may be suffering from stress urinary incontinence (SUI), the most common urinary problem. Around 33 percent of women belonging to the baby boomer generation may develop this disorder, according to a recent study. SUI is indicated by an unplanned leakage when engaging in certain activities such as laughing, coughing, jogging, heavy lifting, and even sneezing.

This very common urinary problem occurs when the muscles and tissues supporting the bladder become weak or damaged. Since the sphincter may not be able to close, any pressure on the bladder may result to the release of urine. Weakening of these muscles may be due to factors such as childbirth, menopause, sports injury, and being overweight.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

By the year 2050, women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) will have increased by 46 percent and affecting almost 5 million American women. POP occurs when pelvic organs descend from its normal position towards the vaginal canal or anus. The organs affected are the bladder, uterus, vaginal vault, small bowel and rectum. Risk factors of POP are pregnancy, obesity, constipation, hysterectomy, and certain diseases.

Symptoms of POP may depend on the organ that is affected although there are indications common to all types of POP. These symptoms include a feeling of pressure in the pelvic area, lower back pain, painful intercourse, constipation, and bleeding from the vagina.

About the Author

The author sympathizes with all women who might experience pelvic disorders - conditions that can greatly affect their lives. It is very unfortunate to hear that in their efforts to treat certain disorders such as POP and SUI through vaginal mesh surgeries, their conditions are exacerbated due to the severe complications associated with these devices. The pain and suffering experienced by these women have even led to the filing of vaginal mesh lawsuits against mesh manufacturers.
