Pelvic organ prolapse is a common condition affecting women. It is estimated that 40% of women older than fifty years old have some degree of prolapse. The numbers increase significantly following a hysterectomy.
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when one of the pelvic organs drops from it’s original place and puts constant pressure into the walls of the vagina. This can occur when the tissues (pelvic floor muscles, fascia and ligaments) that support the organs become weak.
Pelvic surgery such as hysterectomy, childbirth, menopause, chronic constipation and being overweight are possible causes for pelvic organ prolapse.
