Prolapse of the pelvic organs is not uncommon in women. This is common referred to as a “dropped” bladder, uterus, or rectum. Although most often patients have no symptoms, it can be quite distressing.
Symptomatic patients frequently complain of a bulge at the opening of the vagina, generalized discomfort or irritation, or a full sensation in the vagina. It can also negatively affect the ability to evacuate the bowel or bladder. This can lead to secondary issues such as urinary urgency, frequency, inability to empty the bladder, incontinence as well as urinary tract infections.
Common causes of prolapse include pregnancy and childbirth, age (post-menopausal), genetic predisposition, prior hysterectomy or pelvic surgery, and obesity. Correction of these issues can be achieved through non-surgical and surgical options.
