what is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition in which one or more of the pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum, drop down from their normal position and bulge into the vagina. This can occur when the muscles and tissues that support the pelvic organs weaken or stretch, leading to a loss of support.
Pelvic organ prolapse is most commonly seen in women who have given birth, but it can also occur in women who have never been pregnant. The severity of pelvic organ prolapse can range from mild, with only a small bulge into the vagina, to severe, where the vagina and/or pelvic organ is completely outside the body.
