Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is when an internal pelvic organ starts to move downwards towards the vaginal opening. There are different names for different prolapses, depending on the organ that is lowering. Symptoms include vaginal heaviness/pressure, feeling or being able to see organ tissue at or beyond the vaginal opening, achy discomfort, bladder urgency (feeling like you always have to urinate), difficulty emptying bowel or bladder, dribbling urine after urination, and low back ache. Prolapses are evaluated for severity. There are many treatment options available from physiotherapy, to pessaries (intra-vaginal devices to help hold up the organ), to surgery. Our gynecologist can diagnose a prolapse and help determine which treatment options are best for you.
