Can today’s sophisticated feminine hygiene products contribute to increased rates of infertility?

Over the centuries,women have used a variety of feminine hygiene products from soften papyrus in ancient Egypt, through cotton and cotton cloth to widely advertised now-a-days sophisticated high absorbency tampons and pads.  A typical TV commercial about these products would show a gorgeous woman dressed in white going to dance during the heaviest day of her period and the commercial would be something like “feel safe, maximum protection”. The least problem in such an advertisement would be that hardly we dress in white tight pants and go dancing during the heaviest day of our periods. However that’s not the problem. The problem is that such a commercial does not list the materials these maximum absorbency, maximum protection tampons are made from neither do they explain the risks associated with inserting these products into our bodies.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy may play a significant role in achieving successful outcomes in the treatment of gynecological disorders

While talking about physiotherapy most of us associate it with the assessment and treatment of the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and cardio-vascular systems. It is most commonly used for rehabilitation after acute or chronic musculoskeletal injury or after orthopedic surgeries. Pelvic floor muscles are skeletal muscles and can require the same type of rehabilitation like the other skeletal muscles in our body. Pelvic health physiotherapists are specially trained to assess and treat these muscles.
