Live and Online lecture:
Pelvic Floor - The mirror of our soul

Tuesday 8 February, 20:00
Auditorium, Minderbroedersberg 4-6

Marieke Dewitte, PhD

Assistant Professor Sexology, UM

The pelvic floor is a sort of hammock of muscles that shuts off the pelvis and supports the bladder, the rectum and – in women – the womb. If this muscle group is functioning well, you don’t notice it. But your pelvic floor can cause numerous problems that we prefer not to discuss with others because of shame or taboo: problems with bowel movements, for example, and with having sex. The pelvic floor also has an important sexual function, which we don’t fully understand as yet. For example, the pelvic floor plays an important role in building up sexual excitement and during orgasm. The sexual function and experience can be affected by too much muscle tension, as well as too little.

In her lecture, sexologist Marieke Dewitte explains how this obscure group of muscles works, why it is important, how problems arise and how they can be solved.
