Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a condition unique to females in which the genitourinary (pelvic) internal organs descend within the pelvis, distort the vaginal wall and, in some patients, bulge outside the vagina.
About 50% of women who have had children will suffer from pelvic prolapse. This results in pain, intense pressure and urinary dysfunction that can cause otherwise healthy women to limit their active lifestyles. Possible signs of female genital prolapse include:
Back and hip pain
Cystocele (fallen bladder)
