Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Explained

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DGO, MBBS , FCPS, DNB, FICOG, LLB
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Explained

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in your pelvic area. These muscles support the organs in your pelvis like a sling. The organs in this area include the bladder, uterus (women), prostate (men), and rectum (the area at the end of the large intestine where your body stores solid waste). By contracting and relaxing these muscles, you control your bowel and bladder movements.

What is pelvic floor dysfunction?

When you are unable to control the muscles in your pelvic floor to have a bowel movement, it is called pelvic floor dysfunction. People with pelvic floor dysfunction contract these muscles rather than relax them. Because of this, they cannot have a bowel movement, or they have an incomplete one.

It is important to be aware of the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction as there is no comprehensive list of causes. However, it can be said that traumatic injuries to the pelvic area seems to have a rather higher preponderance among the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction, which is also known as PFD. While giving birth to a child is an experience that is life changing, the potential downside is that it can be one of the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction in women!

Other symptoms include feeling the need to urinate often and then finding the process to be quite painful. Constipation which occurs in spite of a diet which contains enough roughage is a sign, as well, that it is about time that a person should schedule an appointment with the doctor.

Medication is a possible solution and is usually in the form of a muscle relaxant of a low intensity. However, it is great for a person who has the misfortune of having pelvic floor dysfunction to know that there are solutions which are completely bereft of the need of any form of medication!

Cure Pelvic Floor Dysfunction-

Reducing the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction can be quite simple, really. Warm baths and some exercises suggested on a subjective basis are quite common. This is a process called biofeedback.

Biofeedback aims to retrain the pelvic floor so that there is far better functioning. The success of this method is well known to a specialist, it has vastly improved the pelvic floor dysfunction conditions of more than 75% of the patients significantly!

The method works by observing the workings of the pelvic floor and then providing feedback regarding its coordination as it expands and contracts. Some of the many things which make this method truly great are that it is non-invasive and non-medical. As a matter of fact, taking into due account its success rate, people should really give it a shot before they try medication or surgery.


Surgery is said to be effective in the case of rectocele. Nevertheless, this is the last resort as it is always better to sort out such problems sans having to resort to surgery. Multidisciplinary approaches which involve fields such as psychology are good options. Pelvic floor dysfunction is something that is a pain to have, but it really need not be!  

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Fistula-in-Ano Or Anal Fistula - How Can It Be Treated?

General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Fistula-in-Ano Or Anal Fistula - How Can It Be Treated?

An anal fistula, is also called as fistula- in -ano, it is a small channel that develops between the end of the large intestine called the anal canal and the skin near the anus. This is a painful condition, especially when the patient is passing stools. It can also cause bleeding and discharge during defecation.

Genesis of fistula-in-ano
Almost all anal fistulae occur due to an anorectal abscess that begins as an infection in one of the anal glands. This infection spreads down to the skin around the anus causing fistula-in -ano. The anorectal abscess usually leads to pain and swelling around the anus, along with fever. Treatment for anorectal abscess involves incising the skin over the abscess to drain the pus. This is done usually under local anesthesiaA fistula-in-ano happens when there is failure of the anorectal abscess wound to heal completely. Almost 50% of patients with an abscess go on to develop a chronic fistula-in-ano.


  1. Pain- Constant pain which gets worse when sitting down
  2. Irritation around the anus, like swelling, redness and tenderness
  3. Discharge of blood or pus
  4. Constipation or pain while evacuation
  5. Fever

A clinical evaluation, including a digital rectal examination under anesthesia, is carried out to diagnose anal fistula. However, few patients may be advised screening for rectal cancer, sexually transmitted diseases and diverticular disease.

The only cure for an anal fistula is surgery. The type of surgery will depend on the position of the anal fistulaMost patients are treated by simply laying open the fistula tract to flush out puscalled Fistulotomy. This type is used in 85-95% of cases and the fistula tract heals after one to two months.

  1. Seton techniques: A seton is a piece of thread (silk, plastic) which is left in the fistula tract to treat anal fissures. This is used if a patient is at high risk of developing incontinence after fistulotomy.
  2. Advancement flap procedures: When the fistula is considered complex, carrying a high risk of incontinence, then this advanced technique is used.

Other techniques like Fibrin glue and Bioprosthetic plug are also used to surgically treat anal fistulas. In the Fibrin glue technique, glue is injected into the fistula to seal the tract, after which the opening is stitch closed. Bioprosthetic plug is a cone shaped plug made from human tissue, which is used to block the internal opening of the fistula. After this stitches are used to keep the plug in place. 

Whatever the surgical technique, one can experience minor changes in continence. Patients usually don’t require antibiotics after surgery but have to take pain medication. They may also have to use gauze to soak up drainage from anus. After surgery, patients should seek help if they have increased pain or swelling, heavy bleeding, difficulty in urination, high temperature, nausea or constipation.

Panic Disorder: Symptoms, Cause, Treatment and Medication

Panic Disorder: Symptoms, Cause, Treatment and Medication

What Is Panic disorder?

Panic disorder is diagnosed in people that experience spontaneous apparently out-of-the-blue panic attacksand square measure-terribly preoccupied with the worry of a continual attack. Panic attacks occur unexpectedly at any time and any where, typically even once arousing from sleep.

Many of people experience panic disorder and it is twice as common in women than in men. Panic disorder can interfere a lot with daily life, causing people to miss work, go to many doctors, and avoid fearful situations.

Signs And Symptoms

Panic disorder sufferers typically have a series of abrupt and intense episodes of fear or maximum anxiety, also known as panic attacks. These attacks usually last up to  10 minutes, and might be as transient as 1–5 minutes, however, will last twenty minutes to quite an hour.In some cases, the attack could continue at intense high intensity, or appear to be increasing in severity. 

Common symptoms of an attack embrace speedy heartbeat, perspiration, dizziness, dyspnea, trembling, uncontrollable concern such as: the concern of losing management and going crazy, the concern of dying and hyperventilation.  Other symptoms are sweating, a sensation of choking, paralysis, chest pain, nausea, numbness or tingling, chills or hot flashes, faintness, crying and some sense of altered reality. In addition, the person usually has thoughts of impending doom.

Causes of Panic Disorder

Panic disorder typically runs in families, however nobody is aware of obviously why some relations have it whereas others don’t. Researchers have found that many components of the brain, in addition to biological processes, play a key role in concern and anxiety. Some researchers suppose that individuals with anxiety disorder misinterpret harmless bodily sensations as threats.


There isn’t a lab test specifically for panic disorder. Your doctor probably will examine you and rule out other health issues. If you’ve had two or more random panic attacks and live in fear of a future attack, you likely to have panic disorder.

  • Self-Help Tips for Panic Attacks
  • Learn about panic and anxiety
  • Avoid smoking, alcohol, and caffeine
  • Learn how to control your breathing
  • Practice relaxation techniques
  • Connect face-to-face with family and friends
  • Exercise regularly



Appropriate medications effectively control or cure panic disorder. SSRI are the 1st line of treatment, instead of benzodiazepines because of issues like tolerance, dependence and abuse with later. You can take SSRI for years if necessary. Anti-anxiety medication can help in the short term.

Your doctor may refer you to a psychotherapist. He or she may recommend a type of effective talk therapy called cognitive behavioral therapy. With it, you can learn how to change unhealthy thoughts and behaviors that bring on panic attacks. Lifestyle changes – such as cutting back on caffeine, exercising, and deep breathing exercises — also may help.
