Pelvic Organ Prolapse


Pelvic organ prolapse is a medical condition that occurs when pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum, drop or shift from their normal position and push against the walls of the vagina.

This condition can cause significant discomfort and pain and affect a woman’s quality of life. This article will discuss the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse.

Symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

The symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse may vary depending on the location and the severity of the prolapse. However, some of the most common symptoms include the following:

  1. A feeling of pressure or heaviness in the pelvis
  2. A bulging or protruding lump in the vagina
  3. Difficulty starting or stopping the urine stream
  4. Incontinence or urine leakage
  5. Constipation or difficulty having a bowel movement
  6. Difficulty with sexual intercourse
  7. Lower back pain

Causes of Pelvic Organ Prolapse:

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs due to the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, which can be caused by various factors, including:

  1. Aging
  2. Childbirth
  3. Menopause
  4. Genetics
  5. Obesity
  6. Chronic coughing
  7. Chronic constipation

It’s important to note that pelvic organ prolapse can vary in severity, & symptoms may range from mild discomfort to significant disruption of daily life. If you experience symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse, such as pelvic pressure, a sensation of something bulging into the vagina, or difficulty with bowel or bladder function, you should seek medical evaluation and appropriate treatment.

Diagnosis of Pelvic Organ Prolapse:

Diagnosis of pelvic organ prolapse may involve a thorough medical history and a physical examination to assess the extent of prolapse. Sometimes a specialized imaging test like MRI or Ultrasound may also be advised.

Stages of Pelvic Organ Prolapse:

There are four stages of Pelvic Organ Prolapse, classified by the extent of the descent of the affected organs:

  • Stage 1 (Mild): In this stage, the prolapse is minimal and typically does not extend beyond the vaginal opening.
  • Stage 2 (Moderate): The prolapse reaches the vaginal opening but does not protrude outside the vagina.
  • Stage 3 (Advanced): At this stage, the prolapsed organ protrudes outside the vaginal opening, though it may still be reducible manually.
  • Stage 4 (Severe): In the most advanced stage, the prolapsed organ is entirely outside the vaginal opening and cannot be reduced manually.

Treatment Options for Pelvic Organ Prolapse:

The treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse depend on the severity, stage of the prolapse, and the patient’s symptoms. Some of the treatment options are:

  1. Pelvic floor muscle exercises
  2. Vaginal pessaries
  3. Surgical procedures like Hysterectomy or Sacrocolpopexy
