Pelvic Organ Prolapse Directory
Pelvic organ prolapse refers to the drooping or prolapse of pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, vagina, small bowel, and rectum. It occurs when the muscles and tissues supporting the organs weaken, sometimes as a result of aging, pregnancy and childbirth, obesity, and chronic cough. Symptoms can include painful intercourse, lower backache, urinary leaking, a chronic urge to urinate, constipation, and hysterectomy.
