TRANSGENDER & GENDER NON-CONFORMING 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.
