Thousands of women today are affected by a very common health condition – especially older women after menopause. It’s called Pelvic organ prolapse which can lead to stress urinary incontinence. Problems like stress urinary incontinence (leakage of urine while coughing sneezing or lifting weight) and pelvic organ prolapse aggravates in this period due to laxity of muscles and fascia, a direct result of decreased estrogen levels after menopause .These conditions are quite natural. It is estimated that roughly one-third of women are affected by one or more forms of Pelvic organ prolapse over their lifetime. You should not hang back from a medical examination. Detected at early stages, progression of prolapse can be stopped or delayed with specific exercises and hormone replacement.
What is the science of Prolapsed uterus? Uterus is supported and held in place inside the pelvis by various pelvic floor muscles, ligaments and fascia. When these muscles and ligaments weaken and fail to support the uterus drops down and comes out in various degrees.
Chronic cough associated with bronchitis and asthma, extra strain on pelvic muscles due to obesity, excess weight lifting, excessive weight of child in the womb and any other conditions leading to increased pressure in the abdomen can also lead to pelvic organ prolapse. A prolapsed uterus would show various symptoms including vaginal bulge, back pain, bleeding, pelvic pressure, stress urinary incontinence, constipation and the need to manually assist in reducing prolapse, often to defecate or relieve oneself.
