Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD)
there are two types of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD); low-tone PFD and high-tone PFD. Low-tone PFD refers to an inability to isolate and contract the pelvic floor musculature in the presence of weak or atrophic musculature, frequently resulting in impairment of muscle isolation, contraction and relaxation. Some resultant manifestations include, voiding dysfunction, urinary frequency, urgency and pelvic pain.
The term means "painful" and actually refers to several pain disorders that affects the female genitals. The most common form of vulvodynia is Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome (VVS) and is a group of disorders that affects the tiny glands that lie at the top and bottom of the vaginal opening. These are called "Skenes", "Batholins", and "Vestibular" glands.
Term used to describe a bladder in which uncontrolled detrusor activity (abnormal contractions) is the suspected cause of urinary frequency (including waking to urinary), and/or urge incontinence.
