Pelvic Floor Prolapse
About one-half of women who give birth develop some level of pelvic floor prolapse. However, it can also develop in women who have never had children.
Pelvic floor prolapse occurs when the pelvic organs drop down, and it is caused by a weakening of the muscles and tissues that support the organs of the pelvis (the vagina, uterus, and bladder). Prolapse happens when these tissues and muscles simply can’t support the organs any longer. The muscles may become torn or stretched. The main cause of this condition is pregnancy and vaginal childbirth, but it can also happen due to menopause, aging, and repeated heavy lifting, as well as conditions that cause pressure on the abdomen (being overweight or obese, constipation, chronic coughing, and other medical conditions).
