Understanding Pelvic Prolapse
Understanding vaginal 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.
Vaginal prolapse happens when pelvic organs, including the bladder or rectum, bulge into the vaginal 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, the vagina can even fall to the point where it extends outside the body. Pelvic Prolapse, Cystocele, Enterocele, and Rectocele (Bladder or Bowel Bulging into the Vagina) are forms of prolapse.
