Pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP), also known as female genital prolapse, is characterized by descent of female genital organs beyond their normal anatomical confines. The condition usually occurs when the pelvic floor collapses after gynecological cancer treatment, childbirth or heavy lifting. The injury occurs to fascia membranes and other connective structures that can result in cystocele, rectocele or both. Treatment can involve dietary and lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or surgery.

Both vaginal and rectal prolapse can occur and it can be caused by a weakened pelvic floor. In order to help keep and promote stronger pelvic muscles, keigel exercises can be used for both vagina and anus.
