Pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse means that an organ in your lower belly—such as your bladder—has moved from its normal position and is pressing against your vagina. This can happen when the muscles and tissues that support your pelvic organs get weak or damaged. It may be painful or uncomfortable. But it usually isn't dangerous.
