A pelvic floor dysfunction can be caused by:

    • urinary and fecal urgency​

    • urge incontinence

    • chronic pelvic pain

    • dyspareunia

    • vaginismus

    • vulvodynia

    • pudendal neuralgia

    • interstitial cystitis

    • chronic prostatitis

  • Hypotonicity of the pelvic floor musculature 

    • stress ​incontinence
