Pelvic organ prolapse can occur when one or more of the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, vagina or rectum) fall from their normal positions. This occurs as a result of the pelvic floor muscles weakening or becoming damaged and are not able to support the pelvic organs. It is not considered life-threatening but it can be uncomfortable and stressful. Without treatment these organs can further fall and if severe enough, even through the vaginal opening.1
There are different types of prolapse that can occur in a woman's pelvic area and these are divided into three categories according to the part of the vagina they affect and it is not uncommon to have more than one type of prolapse. These are: front wall, back wall or top of the vagina.
Stage 1 – A very minor prolapse. The pelvic organs are still very well-supported by the ligaments in the pelvis.
Stage 2 - The pelvic organs are not as well supported by the muscles and have begun to drop downwards. At this stage the organs are still inside the vagina.
Stage 3 - The pelvic organs are beginning to protrude towards or just below the opening of the vagina.
Stage 4 - The pelvic organs protrudes entirely outside of the vaginal opening.
Pelvic floor exercises are often recommended as a method of pelvic health maintenance. An increase in pelvic strength can support the entire pelvic region.
