Transgender Pelvic Health
Gender affirming surgical procedures can sometimes have negative effects on the pelvis, such as urinary, bowel and/or sexual dysfunction.
Potential symptoms include:
- Pain from surgical scars or vaginal penetration
- Generalized pelvic pain
- Inability to achieve vaginal penetration
- Urinary dysfunction such as: urgency, frequency, difficulty starting your stream, spraying and incontinence
- Bowel dysfunction such as: constipation and pain with evacuation
Pelvic health physiotherapy can improve the pain and dysfunction resulting from surgical procedures.
