Pelvic Floor Health and Sexual Well-Being in Men

The promotion and maintenance of men’s pelvic floor health is a growing concern as pelvic disorders affect a substantial number of men and their prevalence is expected to increase as a result of Canada’s aging population. Pelvic floor disorders go beyond their physical consequences as they can negatively impact men’s psychological, sexual, and social quality of life. Evidence strongly suggests pelvic floor muscle training can contribute to the promotion and maintenance of pelvic floor health and to the treatment of symptoms associated to pelvic floor disorders.
