Prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles lose their tone or weaken. This may occur with pregnancy, after giving birth, with heavy lifting, or after menopause. The pelvic floor muscles provide support to the uterus, bladder & rectum. Loss of muscle tone can cause problems with urination or pelvic pain. Weakened pelvic floor muscles can lead to pelvic organ prolapse, when the pelvic organs slip or move down out of their normal position. Our providers can assess your symptoms and degree of prolapse. If prolapse is mild, exercises to help strengthen the pelvic floor or physical therapy may be helpful.
