Pelvic organ prolapse is when one or more of the organs inside the pelvis (found between the waist and thighs), slip from their normal positions. Normally, muscles and tissues in the pelvic region support the pelvic organs and hold them in place.
There are several causes of pelvic organ prolapse, including:
- Vaginal childbirth
- Genetic predisposition
- Connective tissue disorders
- Advanced age
