What is a Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
In some instances, the bladder can drop below the supportive anterior vaginal wall which is called a cystocele. In other cases, the rectal wall can also bulge above the supportive rectal vaginal wall which is referred to as a rectocele.
At other times, a prolapsed uterus occurs. This is when all of the pelvic organs including the uterus or the upper portion of the vagina can protrude down into lower portion of the vagina or even outside of the opening of the vagina.
