Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs where the supporting muscles and ligaments become weakened, allowing the uterus or vaginal wall to drop into the vagina. This “falling down” feeling we refer to as prolapse. The pelvic organs consist of the uterus, vagina, bladder and bowel. Any one of these, or combination of more than one may prolapse.

Pregnancy and childbirth are considered to be the main cause of prolapse but age, menopause, chronic cough, chronic constipation and weight gain may all contribute.

Your gynaecologist will examine the pelvic organs and advise how to repair the organs such that you can return to normal activity.
