Ease your worries: discuss with your gyne. Probably of no great significance. It really depends on your pelvic tolerance anatomically, and a good thinking after better discussion about this pelvic floor dysfunction. Whether this affects your capability to naturally birth, I'm not certain. Really, other than determining your proper route of giving birth, all your concerns shouldn't pose any risk to health of baby
