This condition occurs when a pelvic organ, like your bladder, drops (prolapses) from its normal place in the lower belly and increases pressure against the walls of a female’s vagina. This can happen when the muscles that hold the pelvic organs in place become weak or stretched during childbirth or surgery.
- Cystocele prolapse – When the bladder drops
- Enterocele prolapse – When the small bowel (intestine) drops
- Uterine prolapse – When the uterus sags or slips from it's normal position
