Pelvic floor organs prolapse - how to prevent it or what to do if it happens
Pelvic floor organ prolapse becomes a familiar term to almost 50% of women at some point in their lives. Nearly every second woman! Isn’t it insane?
What is organ prolapse? This is a pathological condition in which the uterus, bladder or rectum is displaced into the vagina or outside it.
Reasons for organ prolapse:
The reason for this process is the weakening of the pelvic floor, of the natural support of the pelvic organs. Pelvic organs are initially firmly fixed by ligaments, muscles and fibers connected to the bone structures of the pelvis. However, for various reasons (the most important ones are pregnancy and childbirth), the "support system" weakens and sags, and as a result, the organs change their position. This happens slowly, and in many cases, women may not notice anything for a long time. This is why taking preventive mesures is highly important.
