Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse is very common, especially in women over 50. As pelvic floor muscles weaken, the connective tissues securing the vagina and uterus give way, displacing these organs, as well as the bladder and rectum, toward the vaginal opening. This can lead to bowel or urinary incontinence, feelings of fullness or pain, infections, and discomfort or lack of sensation with intercourse. While aging is a dominant factor, prolapse can have many causes. They include loss of muscle tone, giving birth, menopause and estrogen loss, obesity, genetics, pelvic trauma or surgery, repeated heavy lifting, chronic constipation, coughing and certain conditions such as diabetes or connective tissue disorders. If you are experiencing any combination of these symptoms, talk to one of our providers today about treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse.
