Kegels Are Not Going to Fix This

For women, by a woman, this book answers all the questions you have been asking the internet about your pelvic health.

Kegels Are Not Going to Fix This is about pelvic floor disorders and what you can do to fix them. By interweaving personal stories with insights from medical research, author Georgeann Sack has provided an invaluable resource that is inviting, enjoyable to read, and dense with information.

Pelvic floor disorders are all uncomfortable to speak of. They involve leaking pee (urinary incontinence), leaking poop (fecal incontinence), or tissue bulging out of your vagina (pelvic organ prolapse). By the time we are 30 years old, 6% of us have a pelvic floor disorder, and by 80 years, 53% of us do. This is a major women’s health issue, and how many women have even heard of it?

It is time to start talking.

This book will help you:

  • Understand your pelvic floor, and the causes of pelvic floor disorders.
  • Know what pelvic floor symptoms to watch out for.
  • Identify behavior changes that may help you.
  • Arm yourself with information and language to explain your symptoms and discuss treatment options with your doctor.
  • See that you are not alone. Not even close. Pelvic floor disorders are an experience shared by women around the world and throughout human history.
