Prolapse

Urogenital prolapse can occur following weakness of the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments.

As the muscles sag, the pelvic contents drop inwards and downwards.

Prolapse is bulging down of the uterus, bladder or bowel, into the vaginal walls. Sometimes this bulge can be felt at the entrance to the vagina, especially when tired and at the end of the day.

Bladder and bowel prolapse can create difficulties in emptying completely and loss of closure control. There may be discomfort during intercourse and difficulty wearing tampons effectively. Symptoms such as tiredness, heaviness, low back ache and dragging sensations can occur.

Sometimes prolapse can be asymptomatic, but to prevent symptoms occurring, some preventative action should be taken.
