What things increase your risk of having a weak pelvic floor?

Myra Robson explains what might increase your risk of having a weak pelvic floor.

You might develop a weak pelvic floor if you suffer from chronic constipation, or if you have a chronic cough or respiratory problem. You might also have it if you are carrying too much weight or if you do repeated heavy lifting.

There’s also a potential if you do a lot of high impact exercise so road running for example. Particularly if you don’t balance it out by other type of exercises or by doing your pelvic floor exercises.
