What are pelvic floor muscles?
Pelvic floor muscles refer to the muscle group at the bottom of the pelvis. This muscle group is like a "hanging net" that tightly fixes the urinary tract, bladder, vagina, uterus, rectum and other organs in the pelvis, keeping these tissues in a normal position. In addition, the pelvic floor muscles also have many physiological functions, such as controlling excretion, maintaining the tightness of the vagina, and increasing sexual pleasure.
During pregnancy, it is necessary to rely on the pelvic floor muscles to support the growing fetus. In the process of delivery, the pelvic floor muscles and nerves will be damaged to some extent, and they will be damaged or broken. There is persistent urine leakage.

And as the age increases, the physical function of the body declines, and the corresponding complications will become more and more serious.

After a pregnant woman enters the second trimester of pregnancy, the fetal position will fall to the bottom of the pelvis in preparation for childbirth. At this time, the pelvis is opened and the uterus is also increasing. It will exert certain pressure on the tissues and organs of the pregnant woman. At this time, the pelvic floor The muscles are prone to certain damage, and the vaginal wall muscles will relax accordingly.
Therefore, after delivery, whether it is a normal delivery or a cesarean section, pelvic floor repair is essential.
