Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?

Pelvic organ prolapse, a prevalent pelvic floor disorder affecting approximately one-third of all women during their lifetime, involves the intricate system of muscles crucial for supporting the pelvic region. This complex structure ensures the proper alignment of organs such as the uterus, vagina, bladder, small bowel, and rectum. Disruption or injury to this support system, often occurring during childbirth or due to relaxation, can lead to the prolapse or descent of these organs. Consequently, individuals may experience a spectrum of distressing symptoms, including urinary incontinence during “stress” events like coughing or sneezing, difficulties with bowel movements, low back pain, pelvic pressure, painful sexual intercourse, the sensation of something “falling out” vaginally, and even irregular vaginal bleeding.

Importance of Timely Intervention

Given the profound impact of pelvic organ prolapse on a woman’s quality of life, timely intervention is essential. Fortunately, a range of treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical, is available.
