Defining Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse involves the dropping or sinking of pelvic organs from their normal anatomical positions. There are different types depending on which area is affected:

  • Cystocele: When the bladder bulges into the front vaginal wall, sometimes visible from the vaginal opening.
  • Uterine/Vault Prolapse: The uterus sinks down into the vagina due to weakened support structures. This may present as a noticeable bulge from the vaginal canal.
  • Rectocele: The rectum pushes against the back vaginal wall, which may cause a sensation of pressure or fullness.
  • Enterocele: The small intestine protrudes and presses into the upper wall of the vagina.

Prolapse often results from structural damage to the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissues. Vaginal childbirth, aging, obesity, and strenuous activity can increase risk. Individuals may experience pelvic pressure, pain, or problems with urination, constipation, or sexual function.

Understanding Urinary Incontinence

Incontinence refers to the unintentional leakage of urine. Several factors can contribute to inadequate bladder control:

  • Stress Incontinence: Urine loss when pressure is exerted, like when coughing, sneezing, exercising, or lifting heavy objects. Weak pelvic floor and sphincter muscles allow contents to squeeze out.
  • Urge Incontinence: Sudden urge to urinate and unintentional voiding. Caused by bladder muscle spasms.
  • Mixed Incontinence: Combination of stress and urge types. Both pelvic floor weakness and overactive bladder contractions.
  • Overflow Incontinence: Dribbling from a constantly full bladder that does not empty completely.

Incontinence can greatly hinder physical activity, socializing, intimacy, and work. Fortunately, effective treatments are available to help restore bladder control and confidence.

Diagnosis and Assessment at AllSafe Medical Group

At AllSafe Medical Group, we perform specialized exams, laboratory tests, and imaging to determine the precise cause of your symptoms. This personalized diagnostic process is essential for selecting appropriate therapies. Key evaluation components may include:

  • Pelvic examination assessing organ positioning and function.
  • Urodynamic tests evaluating bladder function and capacity.
  • Cystoscopy to inspect bladder and urethral anatomy.
  • Imaging like MRI, CT, or ultrasound to visualize pelvic structures.
  • Lab tests to identify urinary tract infections.

Our experts carefully analyze the results from your evaluation to pinpoint contributing factors. A thorough, individualized assessment allows us to recommend treatments with the highest probability of success.

What Treatment Options are Available to Help With Incontinence?

For mild prolapse or incontinence, we often start with nonsurgical therapies:

        Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy: Exercises to strengthen pelvic muscles and improve support. Biofeedback helps isolate and target the correct muscles.


        Medications: Medications that relax bladder muscles, block urgency signals, or replace estrogen.


        Pessary Devices: Removable plastic inserts that support weakened pelvic organs.


        Lifestyle Modifications: Diet changes, weight loss, smoking cessation, and activity adjustment can provide improvement.

When conservative options are ineffective, we discuss advanced surgical treatments to repair anatomical defects and reinforce pelvic support. Options include:

  • Sling Procedures: Sling procedures use synthetic mesh strips to support the urethra and reduce leakage.
  • Prolapse Repair Surgery: Reinforces weakened vaginal walls through graft materials or sutures.
  • Sphincter Injections: Bulking agents injected into the urethra tighten closure.

Minimally invasive vaginal surgeries or laparoscopic and robotic techniques allow faster recovery. We tailor the surgical approach to each patient’s symptoms, anatomy, medical history, and goals.

Living with Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Incontinence

Managing prolapse and incontinence requires an ongoing, trusting partnership between the patient and provider. We offer long-term guidance on symptom control and healthy habits:

  • Adhering to pelvic floor exercise regimens and lifestyle adjustments.
  • Monitoring changes and communicating new or recurring issues.
  • Following individualized therapy instructions.
  • Returning for follow-up appointments and reassessment.
  • Recognizing when to consider additional treatments.

With regular care from our compassionate team, most patients see substantial improvement and regain their confidence.
