Understanding Prolapse E-book
"Prolapse is a common condition and it occurs when the structures designed to keep organs in place weaken or stretch, causing them literally to ‘prolapse’. There are many causes for prolapse, but the two main causes: gravity and childbirth can affect us all, so it’s important that you keep an eye out for symptoms. A prolapse can be fairly mild but it can also become serious, and once the damage is done, it's virtually impossible to undo it.

What is a prolapse?

"Prolapse literally means ‘to fall’ or ‘slip out of place’, and the term can relate to different organs in the body. It is possible to have a rectal (prolapse of the rectum), bladder, vaginal or womb (uterine) prolapse and some of these can occur at the same time."

What symptoms could you experience?

"The symptoms for all of the different types of prolapse can be similar. Some women experience few if any symptoms, but others can find a prolapse debilitating. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Lower back pain
  • A dragging sensation or feeling of 'something falling out'
  • Stress incontinence (where small amounts of urine are passed while sneezing, coughing or exercise)
  • Constipation
  • Difficult or painful sex..."
