Chronic Pelvic Pain affects 1 in 5 women and 1 in 12 men at some point in their lives.
Pelvic health and pelvic pain in particular, have an unfortunate reputation among the medical community for being challenging and difficult to treat. Because of this, many of us are often under-diagnosed and remain symptomatic for months or years, before effective therapies are tried.
Since Michelle (The Happy Pelvis) has been in my life, it’s been nothing but a positive, informative and extremely resourceful experience. I can be a pretty skeptical/stubborn person; especially when research, information and overall awareness on female pelvic pain seriously lacking and inadequate. If it weren’t for THPs Pelvic Pain Roadmap, being very knowledgeable, and providing the *right* information plus gently approaching the subject with me, I wouldn’t have given Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy a chance! Michelle, thank you for improving my quality of life drastically with your kindness and knowledge.

Michelle lives in Canada with her boyfriend and dog, Riley, and has lived with chronic pelvic pain most of her life and had her symptoms dismissed and misdiagnosed for over 15 years. She began her professional career as a designer on the marketing team of one of Canada’s top media companies but in January 2018, had to go on disability after her diagnoses of Interstitial Cystitis/BPS, Endometriosis, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia and Lupus (SLE).
After life changed its course, Michelle started her blog, The Happy Pelvis, to document her pelvic health journey and have a creative outlet while unable to work. It has since grown into something that gives her great meaning and purpose.
