What is it?

Pelvic organ prolapse is when one or more pelvic organs bulge into the vagina. This happens when there is weakness or damage of the pelvic ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tissues. These are responsible for supporting the pelvic organs (uterus, vagina, bladder, rectum, and bowel).
Sometimes surgery is needed to treat prolapse. Sometimes a vaginal pessary is used.
