Overview

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when pelvic organs (uterus, bladder, vagina, or rectum) descend or become displaced. Let’s explore the details:

  1. Symptoms:
    • Pressure Sensation:
      • Pelvic organs pushing against the vaginal wall.
    • Other Symptoms:
      • Feeling full in the lower belly.
      • Sensation of something falling out of the vagina.
      • Groin pull or lower back pain.
      • Pain during sex.
      • Bowel and bladder issues (constipation, incontinence, discomfort).

  2. Types of Pelvic Organ Prolapse:
    • Cystocele:
      • Bladder drops into the vagina.
      • Symptoms: Vaginal bulging, urinary stream slowing, overactive bladder.
    • Enterocele:
      • Intestines bulge downward into the upper vagina.
      • Often accompanies vaginal vault prolapse after hysterectomy.
    • Rectocele:
      • Rectum bulges upward due to weak vaginal wall.
      • Causes incomplete rectal emptying.
    • Vaginal Vault Prolapse:
      • Top of the vagina drops near the vaginal opening (post-hysterectomy).

  3. Treatment Options:
    • Lifestyle Changes:
      • Diet and fitness adjustments.
    • Pessary:
      • Rubber or plastic device inserted vaginally for symptom relief.
    • Surgical Procedures:
      • Pelvic floor reconstruction.
      • Recent advancements improve surgical effectiveness.
