Committee on Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor

About the committee

Pelvic floor disorders, which includes problems with urinary and bowel continence, pelvic organ support, and associated sexual problems, can have a detrimental impact on a woman's hygiene and quality of life. Prevalence rates of these conditions are very high in women of all ages, as they are related to the vaginal birth process, pelvic trauma, and other neuromuscular disorders. Advances in the understanding of the continence mechanism, as well as of pelvic anatomic support principles, has allowed women's healthcare providers and urogynecologists to help women address these debilitating problems when they occur. 

The Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor Committee aims to be a valuable resource to practicing Obstetricians and Gynecologists around the world, by providing evidence-based guidance for the care of their patients with pelvic floor problems. The Committee also functions as a liaison between FIGO and other multi-disciplinary organisations that focus their efforts in advancing knowledge and education on female pelvic floor dysfunction.
