Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is; With the knowledge of pelvic floor anatomy, the aim is to "metanalize the researches on pelvic floor muscle exercises on urination, defecation, sexual life and birth physiology". In addition, it will contribute to the correction of muscle damage, changes occurring during pregnancy and childbirth, and sexual life with accurate anatomical information in women.

Materials and Methods: After the introduction about the pelvic floor muscle anatomy; from 24 scientific publications in total; We benefited from two doctoral theses and one master's thesis. Meta analysis has been studied in 17 works. It has benefited from the results of the related publications as a summary. Areas of interest were as follows; Nursing services, obstetrics clinic patients, physical therapy clinic findings were examined. General meta-analysis working conditions were examined in these publications. The results of studies in many different fields were presented in the discussion section.

Results: It is a meta-analysis evaluation of the results of studies screened on pelvic floor muscle training.

Conclusion: In the light of all the researches about pelvic floor muscle training, which were meta-analyzed; It is important that the pelvic floor muscle training given to the subjects be given under the direction of an experienced anatomist. It is possible for people to live a comfortable and happy life by mastering their bodies. Living in comfort and happiness is possible by learning the right anatomical information at the right time. Learning the correct anatomical information at the right time provides comfortable defecation, comfortable urination and happy sexual life. Researchers state that choosing and accepting appropriate sexual behavior and sexual function is difficult due to low sexual self-efficacy in the postpartum period. For this situation, researchers report that an 8-week pelvic floor muscle exercise program has positive effects on the loss of sexual self-efficacy in women after childbirth [24].
