What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is common in women and what it does is to impact on bladder control. What I want you to know is that it won’t get better on its own so you will need to seek help.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Your pelvic organs include the bladder, uterus and bowel. They are held in place by tissues called ‘fascia’ and ‘ligaments’. These supporting tissues help to join your pelvic organs to the bony side walls of the pelvis and hold them inside your pelvis.
What Do My Pelvic Floor Muscles Do?
Your pelvic floor muscles hold up your pelvic organs from below. If your pelvic floor muscles are weak, then your pelvic organs might not be held in their right place. As a result, they may bulge or sag down into the vagina.
