Prolapse Q & A

What is prolapse?

NUWA WORLD treats numerous conditions, including pelvic organ prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse refers to the loosening or weakening of the tissues and muscles supporting the pelvic organs: uterus, bladder, or rectum. This causes one or more of the pelvic organs to press, fall, or drop into or out of the vagina or rectum.

What are the different types of prolapse?

There are different types of prolapse, including bladder, vaginal, and rectal.

Bladder prolapse

The bladder is held in place by a curved band or hammock of supportive pelvic floor muscles and tissues. When these tissues become stretched or weakened, your bladder can drop out of place.

Vaginal prolapse

With vaginal prolapse in women, the vagina stretches or expands to protrude on other organs or structures. Vaginal prolapse typically doesn’t just involve the vagina.

Uterine prolapse

Uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus descends toward or into the vagina. In some instances, your uterus can extend beyond the vaginal opening.

Rectal prolapse

With rectal prolapse, the rectum telescopes out through your anus, almost turning it inside out due to the weakening and loss of normal attachments in your body.

Vaginal laxity

Vaginal laxity refers to looseness and loss of elasticity in the vagina and vaginal tissues. The condition is associated with menopause, childbirth, hormones, and aging.

What does prolapse treatment depend on?

How your prolapse is treated depends on a number of factors, such as your general health and the type and severity of your prolapse.

Your provider devises a highly personalized treatment plan and might recommend various treatments for your prolapse, such as:

  • Medications, such as antiinflammatories
  • Healthy lifestyle modifications, such as exercise, stress management, and a nutrient-dense diet
  • Targeted exercises and physical rehabilitation
  • Behavior changes, such as avoiding pushing or straining when having a bowel movement and urinating
  • Drinking sufficient fluid and staying hydrated
  • Other methods, such as warm baths and yoga
  • MonaLisa® Touch vaginal laser treatment to improve vaginal laxity
  • Minimally invasive procedures when necessary, such as surgery to support the vagina or uterus

NUWA WORLD offers highly effective treatments and procedures for prolapse and other conditions.

Pelvic floor reconstruction

Pelvic floor reconstruction is the term for a cluster of effective surgical procedures used to treat pelvic organ prolapse. A pelvic floor reconstruction can restore the normal structure and function of the pelvic organs.

Pelvic floor reconstruction is also called prolapse surgery and sacrocolpopexy. During the procedure, your provider typically uses mesh to hold your affected pelvic organ in the correct natural position. The procedure isn’t the same as the transvaginal mesh placement.
