Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Often due to weakness or incoordination of our pelvic floor muscles, we may have a pelvic organ prolapse. 

There are three main types: 

  • prolapse of your rectum (Rectocele)
  • prolapse of the bladder (Cystocele)
  • prolapse of the uterus   (Uterine Prolapse)

The causes can be many.   Some reasons could be:  

  • You could have weakness associated with childbirth that leads to a prolapse.
  • You might be an avid runner or weightlifter and due to an incoordination of pelvic floor muscles you have experienced a pelvic organ prolapse.
  •  Maybe hormonal changes in your body has caused changes to your tissue and put you at risk for prolapse.

Are you experiencing any of these symptoms?

  • Sensation or heaviness/pulling in your pelvis
  • Tissue protruding from your vagina
  • Urinary problems, such as urine leakage (incontinence) or urine retention
  • Trouble having a bowel movement
  • Feeling as if you’re sitting on a small ball or as if something is falling out of your vagina
  • Sexual concerns, such as a sensation or looseness in the tone of your vaginal tissue
We understand this is a difficult time.  Our services are offered via telehealth, in your home, or in our clinic.
