Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when the tissues that hold the pelvic organs in place become weak or stretched, resulting in the displacement (prolapse) of the organs from their normal position. There are several signs that you may have this treatable condition:
- Vaginal pain, pressure, irritation, bleeding, back pain, or spotting
- A bulge or lump in the vagina
- Difficulty emptying your bladder or bowel
- Difficult or painful sexual intercourse
Bladder leakage is very common, affecting one in three women at some point in their lifetime.¹ If you’ve experienced either of the following symptoms, it may be urinary incontinence—and there are solutions.
- Leaking urine during physical activity, like laughing, exercising, coughing, or sneezing
- An overwhelming need to urinate, even though you just went
