When the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman’s pelvic organs weaken, the pelvic organs can slip out of place and create a bulge in the vagina. This is known as pelvic organ prolapse. Women most commonly develop pelvic organ prolapse years after childbirth, after a hysterectomy or after menopause. This condition may cause symptoms ranging from mild to severe, and can pose a major detriment to a woman’s quality of life. Although there are known risks associated with some of the surgical procedures to address Pelvic Organ Prolapse, it can often be effectively addressed by properly trained medical professionals who specialize in this important area of medicine.
