What is vaginal prolapse?
Vaginal prolapse, pelvic floor prolapse, or pelvic organ prolapse (POP), occurs when the structures of the pelvis protrude into or outside of the vaginal canal. Frequent sites of pelvic organ prolapse include the bladder, urethra, uterus, vagina, small bowel, or rectum. The vagina is a muscular tube that supports all these. The condition is experienced almost entirely by adult women and more common in women who have had a hysterectomy or multiple childbirths. A weakness in any area of the vaginal canal or its support structures can allow one or more of the various types of prolapse to occur.
