Issues with the pelvic floor are common in many people with a uterus. In fact, up to 24 percent of genetically female individuals will experience a pelvic floor issue during their lifetime. The cost of pelvic floor treatment ranges widely, from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, and most treatments are covered by insurance. 

Although Mira does not currently cover pelvic floor treatments, you can use our services to offset the cost of pelvic floor treatment and to pay for medications. With access to lab tests, prescriptions, and urgent care visits for just $45 per month, Mira can save you money while you undergo pelvic floor treatment. 

Pelvic Floor Treatments - What are They?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the organs in the lower part of the abdomen. The pelvic floor includes the bladder, uterus (or womb), and bowel. These muscles allow for control over releasing urine and feces. The muscles of the pelvic floor can be weakened in the following circumstances:

  • Giving birth
  • Going through menopause
  • Having gone through surgery in the pelvic area
  • Having an ongoing cough
  • Having a history of doing a lot of heavy lifting
  • Being overweight
  • Having a long term history of straining on the toilet

People who have a weakened pelvic floor can develop issues such as fecal or urinary incontinence, which means that they can no longer control their bowel or bladder movements, respectively. Pelvic floor dysfunction can cause people to have a frequent need to urinate or an inability to empty their bowel or bladder fully. 

Nearly 1 in 5 genetic females will undergo surgery to treat pelvic floor dysfunction in their lifetime. Despite being very common, pelvic floor dysfunction is not discussed often, complicating an already unpleasant condition.
