A reduced awareness and perception of the perineal musculature leads many women to neglect the pelvic floor, which can sometimes result in a series of muscular dysfunctions, first and foremost urinary incontinence. From this emerges the need to promote, from school age onwards, interventions of prevention. We aimed to evaluate the knowledge of young women in the uro-gynaecological context, to verify the potential effectiveness of a preventive intervention and propose two educational tools.
