Understanding Pelvic Prolapse

Understanding  Prolapse

There are a number of muscles, ligaments, and other tissues that elevate and support the pelvic area. They provide support for pelvic organs including the uterus, urethra, bladder, and the rectum.

Prolapse happens when pelvic organs, including the bladder or rectum, bulge into the  wall due to a weakening of important muscles and supporting ligaments. If left untreated, these organs may fall or protrude to a point that they prolapse (bulge or push into)—the vaginal area. In extreme cases,  this  can even fall to the point where it extends outside the body. Pelvic Prolapse, Cystocele, Enterocele, and Rectocele are forms of prolapse.
