Incontinence, constipation, sexual difficulties, pelvic pain, and abnormal uterine bleeding–all very difficult subjects for any woman to discuss, even with their doctor.
Join Board Certified OB/GYN Dr. Anne Brown and Physical Therapist Lindani Sechele for an interactive discussion about pelvic health. Learn more about the basic anatomy, common pelvic disorders, and treatment options.
As part of its free “Ask the Expert” lecture series, Inova Loudoun Hospital will host a discussion on Tuesday, November 14 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. While pelvic health issues are common concerns among women, many are reluctant to discuss them with their medical providers. The symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction – such as incontinence, constipation, sexual difficulties, pelvic pain, and abnormal uterine bleeding – can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, these disorders can often be reversed with treatment.
Participation is free but seating is limited. To register visit inova.org/AskTheExpert or call 1.855.MY.INOVA (855.694.6682).
