New tool helps women detect pelvic floor disorders

The hidden problem of prolapse and urine incontinence is being exacerbated because women are often too embarrassed to speak about the issue and get help, but help is on the way.

Fifty percent of women suffer some sort of pelvic floor disorder but experts say many are suffering unnecessarily.

Thirty-four-year-old Louise was a fit and active mum who took daily boot camp workouts until May this year when she had an unexpected uterine prolapse.

"It felt like my insides were trying to become my outsides," she says.

"I've always been very proactive about my health but I'd heard nothing about this. It flipped my world."
