prolapse symptoms pelvic floor after hysterectomyI have a bulge in my vagina during bowel movements, and I am leaking urine. Are these symptoms of pelvic floor prolapse?


There are several different types of pelvic organ prolapse which can occur in women. Prolapse(s) can occur when the pelvic floor weakens and organs and tissues move out of place.

There are several different symptoms that can occur with the various types of pelvic organ prolapse. You should check with your doctor if you have any of the following symptoms or are concerned that you may have pelvic floor prolapse:
  • Pressure in the vagina or pelvis
  • Pelvic discomfort
  • Urinary and bowel dysfunction
  • A decrease in pain or pressure when lying down
  • A lump at the opening of the vagina
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Painful intercourse
  • Back pain
  • Urinary Incontinence

Your doctor will exam you and may use other tests to determine if you are experiencing pelvic floor prolapse. An MRI, an ultrasound, or a cystourethroscopy are examples of imaging tests that may be ordered. Other tests such as bladder function tests, pelvic floor strength tests and a q-tip (urether) test may also be used to determine if you are experiencing pelvic floor prolapse and to create a plan of action.
