What is pelvic organ prolapse?
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ, such as your bladder, drops from its normal position and pushes against the walls of your vagina. Often, this happens when the muscles that hold your pelvic organs in place get weak or stretched out. Usually, as a result of childbirth, surgery or genetics. Sometimes the cause is unknown. Regardless, there is no need to suffer.
Pelvic organ prolapse affects approximately half of the women who delivered their babies vaginally. Advancing age, obesity, a hysterectomy, chronic straining and abnormalities of the connective tissue also contribute to prolapse.
