Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) are a significant health concern for women, with studies indicating that roughly one-quarter of U.S. women are affected by these conditions. The prevalence of PFDs, which include urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse, increases with age, affecting over 40% of women aged 60 to 79 and about 50% of those 80 or older. Additionally, a large-scale study found that at least 32% of women in a primary care setting have a pelvic floor disorder, highlighting the need for increased screening, particularly among older and obese women.
