Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP): It’s common and it’s treatable.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a condition experienced by some women in which one or more of the pelvic organs drop from their normal position.

  • Approximately 3.3 million women in the U.S. suffer from pelvic organ prolapse
  • Nearly half of women age 50 – 79 report experiencing symptoms.

Symptom Checker

Women experiencing prolapse won’t always experience obvious symptoms. As prolapse progresses, the symptoms may become more apparent and painful. If you are experiencing prolapse, you may experience:

  • Pressure in the pelvic region
  • Vaginal discomfort, pain, pressure or bleeding
  • Pulling or aching in the lower abdomen or pelvis
  • A bulge coming out of the vagina
  • Painful or uncomfortable sexual intercourse
  • Difficulty urinating or having a bowel movement

 

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, you may have prolapse and should consult with your doctor. Remember, although these signs and symptoms can alert you to a problem, they are not unique to prolapse, so it is important to consult a doctor for the correct diagnosis.
