Overview

This is generally a condition where organs, such as the uterus, falls down or slip out of place. It is used for organs protruding through the vagina or the rectum or for the misalignment of the valves of the heart. This can happen when the muscles that hold your pelvic organs in place get weak or stretched from childbirth or surgery. In many cases more than one organ can prolapse as well.

Signs and Symptoms

  • A feeling of pelvic pressure
  • Painful intercourse
  • Spotting or bleeding from the vagina
  • Involuntary release of urine
  • Constipation

Causes

The major causes include:

  • Obesity
  • A long-lasting cough
  • Frequent constipation
  • Pelvic organ tumors

Treatment

The treatment for Pelvic Prolapse depends on which pelvic organs have prolapsed and how bad the symptoms are. A doctor takes into account various factors, such as the woman's age, general health, treatment preference, and the severity of the prolapsed bladder to determine which treatment is appropriate.

  • Pessary - A pessary is a device that is placed within the vagina to hold the bladder in place. Pessaries must be removed and cleaned at regular intervals to prevent infection.
  • Estrogen replacement therapy
  • Prolapsed Bladder Surgery
