Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse means that an organ in your lower belly—such as your bladder—has dropped from its normal place and is pushing against your vagina. This can happen when the muscles that support your organs get weak or stretched from childbirth or surgery. It may be painful or uncomfortable. But it usually isn't dangerous.
