Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification System (POP–Q) – a new era in pelvic prolapse staging
Bladder & bowel - Prolapse | Jean Hailes
There are many different types of prolapse, including uterine, bladder and bowel prolapse. Causes of prolapse, symptoms, tests used to diagnose prolapse, and management and treatment of prolapse are discussed. Prolapse is caused by a stretching of the ligaments and muscles that support the pelvic organs, causing those organs to drop down. The word prolapse literally means to 'fall out of place'.
The prolapse of one or several pelvic organs is a condition that has been known by medicine since its early days, and different therapeutic approaches have been proposed and accepted. But one of the main problems concerning the prolapse of pelvic organs is the need for a universal, clear and reliable staging method. Because the prolapse has been known and recognized as a disease for more than one hundred years, so are different systems proposed for its staging.

This can happen if your pelvic floor muscles are stretched or weakened. A prolapse occurs when the ligaments that hold the pelvic organs in place are stretched.
