What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse is bulging of one or more of the pelvic organs into the vagina. These organs are the uterus, vagina, bowel, and bladder.
Causes & Symptoms
Treatments of Rectal Prolapse
Many women with prolapse do not require treatment, as the problem does not interfere with their normal activities. Lifestyle changes such as weight loss and pelvic floor exercises are usually recommended in mild cases.
If the symptoms require treatment, a prolapse may be treated effectively by inserting a device called vaginal pessary into the vagina. This helps to hold the prolapsed organ in place.
Surgery is also an option in certain cases. This usually involves giving support to the prolapsed organ. In some cases, complete removal of the womb (hysterectomy) is required, especially if the womb has prolapsed out. Most of the treatments are painless and bloodless. In many cases, patients are discharged in 2 days.
