Banner Health is hosting a question-and-answer session for women living with pelvic discomfort and dysfunction. All Right Now: Solutions for Better Pelvic Health will address the real-life challenges that pelvic disorders create for more than 37 million women in the United States, many of whom are unaware they suffer from a diagnosable disease.

Conditions such as endometriosis, uterine prolapse and adenomyosis can be easily mistaken for symptoms of menstruation.

Aside from the risk of bladder control issues and infertility, pelvic dysfunction limits a woman’s ability to be active, productive and affectionate with her partner. Medical experts hope to clarify how and when to seek care for women experiencing constant pelvic pain.

American women spend 2.8 billion dollars seeking treatment for their pelvic difficulties annually, many of them seeking care after the disorder has caused years of damage and grief. We lose an additional $555 million in nationwide productivity from the effects of pelvic pain. Thankfully, there are more ways than ever before to treat women for these conditions.

Attend one of the free seminars in July, there will be two on Thursday, July 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. The first is at Banner Baywood Medical Center, 6644 E. Baywood Ave. in Mesa, and the second is at Banner Desert Medical Center, 1400 S. Dobson Road in Mesa.
