What to expect at your Pelvic Health appointment?

After booking your appointment you will be sent a confidential pelvic health screening form. Your specialist pelvic health Physiotherapist will review this form before your appointment.  This way we can ensure you are booked into the right clinic and with the right specialist to address your concerns.

We understand that talking about pelvic health issues can be daunting, so we provide a safe and confidential space for you to discuss what you’re experiencing at your own pace. On arrival please take a seat in our waiting area, you will then be welcomed into the clinic room by your physiotherapist.

Your first session will begin with a sit-down consultation, allowing you to talk about the issues you’re having and how they are impacting you. Your physiotherapist will listen, and ask questions to ensure we have all the information we need to help your recovery.

For the majority of female pelvic health conditions, your physical assessment will include an internal vaginal examination. This is something which helps the specialist physiotherapist to determine the problem to its full extent. The physiotherapist will explain the process of the examination in full, and ensure that you are happy and comfortable to go ahead. At any time we can stop the assessment. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of internal examinations, please speak to your physiotherapist.

Following your assessment, we will discuss the findings with you and together you will determine the next steps and commence treatment. You are encouraged to ask any questions so that you feel fully informed of the diagnosis and understand the course of treatment.

You may wish to bring someone with you to support you during your appointment (an informal chaperone). Based on safeguarding policy we strongly recommend this is not a partner. Please let us know before your appointment if you plan to bring someone. Please also be aware that at some point during the appointment, we will need to speak to you on your own.

Children can join you at your appointment, however, we highly recommend attending your appointment by yourself to focus on your wellbeing and engage more openly about your concerns.

Towards the end of your appointment, we will discuss your rehabilitation plan. This is for you to work on between visits to support your recovery. If you need referral or signposting to other services and products this will be discussed with you.

Finally, your therapist will provide you with the next steps for follow-up treatment. You will leave with a clear plan of action and know what to do in time for your next treatment.

You can contact your therapist for support via email any time between appointments.
