The first time I heard of pelvic floor physical therapy, my best friend told me her doctor recommended she try it several months after delivering her first child vaginally. Unsurprisingly, a lot of women experience changes postpartum ranging from uncomfortable sex to peeing a little when they laugh.
Of course, after her first appointment, I was morbidly curious and wanted to know all the details of what pelvic PT entailed.
My curiosity is not uncommon. Later when I was talking about my endo experience on Instagram, literally EVERYONE wanted to hear about pelvic floor PT. Although it makes perfect sense that any set of muscles might require some maintenance after a trauma of sorts, and the pelvic muscles are no exception, no one seems to talk about pelvic floor PT, so no one knows much about what goes on with it.
