Menopause is a natural and inevitable phase in a woman’s life, typically occurring between the ages of 45 and 55. This transformative period brings about various changes in the female body, and one aspect that often goes overlooked is its effect on pelvic floor health.
The pelvic floor is a complex network of muscles, ligaments, and tissues that provides support to the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum. Menopause can have a significant impact on the pelvic floor, leading to various challenges that women may need to address.
Before delving into the connection between menopause and pelvic floor health, it’s important to understand what menopause is. Menopause is a biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. It is defined as the absence of menstruation for 12 consecutive months. Menopause typically occurs in three stages:
Hormonal Changes and Pelvic Floor Health
One of the key factors that link menopause to pelvic floor health is the hormonal changes that occur during this phase. Oestrogen, a hormone produced by the ovaries, plays a significant role in maintaining the strength and elasticity of pelvic floor muscles and tissues. As women approach menopause, oestrogen levels decline, which can have several effects on the pelvic floor:

By taking proactive steps, women can ensure that their pelvic floor remains strong and functional as they navigate the transformative journey of menopause.
At Avantir Wellness, we are excited to introduce StarFormer® by Fotona, a groundbreaking high-intensity Tesla magnetic stimulation (HITS™) therapy that can stimulate muscle contraction in the entire pelvic floor area, increasing the strength and endurance of the pelvic floor. The result is effective and long-term relief of urinary incontinence without effort.
StarFormer® therapy surpasses conventional methods by effectively stimulating not only the pelvic floor muscles but also the muscles in the back. This unique approach targets the underlying causes of urinary and faecal incontinence while simultaneously promoting the overall well-being of the pelvic region.
During treatment, the patient remains clothed and sits on a comfortable IntimaWave® chair with built-in applicators in the seat and back of the chair. The magnetic applicators in the chair stimulate muscle contraction in the entire pelvic floor area, leading to increased muscle strength and improved urinary symptoms.
This innovative, non-invasive approach ensures that the therapy is gentle, quick, and efficient. There is no need for patient preparation before the session, making it a convenient choice for those seeking effective treatment.
StarFormer® IntimaWave™ Therapy has demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in addressing a wide range of urinary and faecal incontinence concerns, including:
