The Core Centre


We can help with:

  • Pain with sex/dyspareunia, vaginal dryness
  • Bowel control
  • Bladder control
  • Exercise 
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

Hormonal changes associated with the perimenopause and postmenopausal period can result in the onset, or worsening of urinary and feacal control, symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse and vaginal dryness. 

We will teach you how to strengthen your pelvic muscles to support and prevent urinary and faecal leakage and to support the pelvic organs. Vaginal dryness is a common symptom during this time due to the reduction in oestrogen, often resulting in sensitivity of the vulva and pain with intercourse. Management may include advice on lubrication/moisturisers, pelvic floor strengthening and/or relaxation and breathing techniques.  

As our hormones change with age our bone density can also be affected. It is important to strengthen your body in the right way to improve bone density without compromising your pelvic health.
