Pelvic Organ Prolapse Treatment in Barron
Our OB-GYN providers treat pelvic organ prolapse.
When the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman's pelvic organs weaken, the pelvic organs can drop lower in the pelvis, creating a bulge in the vagina (prolapse). Women most commonly develop pelvic organ prolapse years after childbirth, after a hysterectomy or after menopause. If you have symptoms, such as a feeling of pressure in your pelvic area, see your health care provider.
Women can have one or a combination of symptoms, depending on the location and severity of their prolapses:
- A feeling of fullness or pressure in your pelvis and vagina.
- A bulge of tissue in your vagina that you can see or feel. Leaking urine or difficulty urinating.
- Urgent need to urinate.
- Need to cross legs before coughing to prevent urine leaks.
- Need to physically push a bulge in when urinating to allow urine to pass.
- Increased pelvic pressure when you strain, cough, bear down or lift.
- Problems having sexual intercourse.
