see if you can get a referral to a womens health physio in your area
i was the same and in 3 sessions she sorted me out!!
rem this though:
-pelvic floors for life - do everyday as many as poss - only way it will improve, ask if you want to know how she told me do them
-it will get worse around af time - hormones (same if you suffer piles etc too)
-remember to pull up if you know you are going to sneeze cough laugh etc
-she did give me a toner to practise with but tbh its just for idemtifying your muscles and then you wont use so often so i wouldnt spend money on one if you can get one for free!
-time is also imp - up to 6 months after birth hormones change dramatically and for this problem they help make it better, it can take up to 2 years for it settlethough, even if you did nothing at all, which is reassuring and frustrating i guess too
hth and message me if you want to, you are not alone in this and you can be helped!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
