Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse is an extremely common female health condition that occurs in around 50% of women at some time or other.
There are different causes and many women discover they have a prolapse after childbirth.
Due to the 'unknown' many women continue with their lives going undiagnosed or are unaware they have a pelvic organ prolapse.
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can occur when the PC or pelvic floor muscles weaken and one or more organ/tissue areas shift out of their normal positions into the vaginal canal. In advanced cases of POP, tissues bulge outside of the vagina; the worst case scenario is a woman's uterus can be completely outside of her body.
There are 5 types of POP; organs that can prolapse are the bladder (cystocele), intestines (enterocele), rectum (rectocele), uterus (uterine), and vagina (vaginal vault). There are 4 levels of severity; grade 1 is the mildest, grade 4 the most severe. More detailed information about pelvic organ prolapse can be found on the site. www.pelvicorganprolapse.org

How can IncoStress help if you have a prolapse?
IncoStress can assist with the gentle support of a mild cystocele and or rectocele. It can be used during the night time to support the internal organs from descending.
Please note that IncoStress is not suitable for a uterine prolapse as the cervix will more than likely push out the IncoStress pessary.
