What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse Postpartum?

 

Pelvic Organ Prolapse Postpartum

Pelvic organ prolapse is downward descent of female pelvic organs. These organs include the bladder, uterus or post-hysterectomy vaginal cuff, and the small or large bowel, resulting in protrusion of the vagina, uterus, or both.

The most consistent risk factors include:

1. Vaginal child birth
2. Advancing age
3. Increasing body-mass index

Patients generally present with several complaints, including bladder, bowel, and pelvic symptoms. However, with the exception of vaginal bulging, none is specific to prolapse.

If you are experiencing any symptoms please seek medical advice as you will likely need a pelvic examination and medical history check.
