About prolapse: your internal organs that are supported by the pelvic floor – bladder, uterus, vagina, rectum, and small bowel – may have shifted from their original position and are now drooping (sinking) into the vaginal canal or the anus.  In progressive stages, you may be able to feel or see a bulge at the vaginal opening or high between your legs.  It happens because the pelvic floor became weak and can no longer support them.

Types of prolapse:

  • Rectocele – drooping of the rectum
  • Cystocele – drooping of the bladder
  • Urethrocele – drooping of the urethra (urine tube)
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Enterocele – dropping of the small bowel
  • Vaginal vault prolapse

  • Pregnancy, long labor

  • Chronic coughing (smoking, respiratory conditions)
  • Chronic constipation
  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
  • Intense repetitive physical activity (running, lifting)
  • Pelvic cancers

  • Genetic predisposition
