men's health

Pelvicroar considers that all pelvic health issues are important, but we do recognise that women's pelvic health gets more "airtime". We are setting aside this page to focus on male pelvic health, and provide a variety of links to trusted sources of information, advice and training.

 

The key pelvic health conditions that we see in men include:

 

  • Prostatectomy – urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction

  • Persistent pelvic pain

  • Sexual dysfunction

  • Faecal incontinence

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Overactive bladder

  • Constipation

These are some of our top tips for people to follow, resources to read, websites to browse...
