Not sure about Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)?


Read below to find out more.

If you think you may have the symptoms of POP make sure to book an appointment with your GP or Pelvic floor physiotherapist for assessment.


What does pelvic organ prolapse mean?

The pelvic organs, which include the bladder, vagina, uterus and bowel, are held in place by the pelvic floor muscles and supporting tissues such as ‘fascia' and 'ligaments'. These help to join the pelvic organs to the bony side walls of the pelvis and keep them in place.

Your pelvic floor muscles also work to support the pelvic organs from underneath. If the supporting tissues are torn or stretched, and you’re the pelvic floor muscles are weak, then the pelvic organs may not be held in their right place.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP), occurs when one of the pelvic organs sags and may bulge or protrude into the vagina.


Are there different types of prolapse?

There are different types of prolapse, and it is important to have any prolapse properly assessed by a doctor or pelvic floor physiotherapist.

Pelvic organs may:


  • bulge into the front wall of the vagina (cystocele)

  • through the back vaginal wall (rectocele or enterocele)

  • or the cervix and the uterus may drop down into the vagina (uterine prolapse)

More than one of the pelvic organs may bulge into the vagina.





Prolapse can run in families. It is more likely after menopause, or if you are overweight, however it can occur in young women soon after having a baby.

  • About half of all women who have had a child have some level of prolapse, but only one in five women need to seek medical help.

  • Prolapse can also happen in women who haven’t had a baby, mainly if they have a chronic cough, strain on the toilet or lift very heavy loads.

  • Even after surgery to repair prolapse, one in three women will prolapse again.

  • Prolapse can also happen in women who have had their womb removed (hysterectomy). In a case like this, the top of the vagina (the vault) can prolapse.

Symptoms of Prolapse

When a prolapse is further down, you may notice things such as:

  • a lump bulging out of your vagina that you can see or feel

  • a heavy sensation or dragging in the vagina

  • something ‘coming down' or a lump in the vagina

  • difficulty emptying your bladder or bowel.

  • lower back pain

  • sexual problems (pain or less sensation)

  • weak urine stream

  • recurring urinary tract infections

These signs and symptoms can be worse at the end of the day and may improve after lying down. If the prolapse bulges right outside your body, you may feel sore and bleed as the prolapse rubs on your underwear.

What is Post-Prostatectomy Incontinence?

Incontinence is a condition involving the inability to retain or hold urine, resulting in loss of bladder control. Post-prostatectomy incontinence is incontinence experienced after prostate surgery and affects as many as 95% of men who undergo prostatectomy. 95% of men with post-prostatectomy incontinence will regain complete bladder control within 3-12 months post-surgery. However, in some cases, symptoms of post-prostatectomy incontinence will persist past 12 months, and require additional management.

The surgical removal of the prostate significantly disrupts the continence mechanism. This impact alters the length of the urethra, reduced urethral pressure, reduced capacity for the bladder to store urine, and can impact the nerves and muscles that control bladder function. Due to the impact on the continence mechanism, the majority of men will experience some degree of post-prostatectomy incontinence. There are a number of risk factors that will increase the likelihood of the incontinence being severe or prolonged.


These include;  

  • Obesity (BMI >30)

  • Pre-existing bladder symptoms

  • Previous radiation or surgeries

  • Lack of physical activity

  • Surgical complications

  • Increasing age.

Symptoms of Post-Prostatectomy Incontinence

Urine leakages or poor bladder control that occur immediately following a prostate surgery. This may include:

  • Leakage when coughing/straining/lifting

  • A sudden and strong urge to urinate

  • Extended use of continence aids, like pads (past 12 months)

  • Leakage after emptying the bladder (post-micturition dribble)

  • Increased urinary frequency (particularly at night).
