Pelvic organ prolapse is a common condition affecting millions of women. Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the pelvic muscles and ligaments are weakened, making them unable to hold the pelvic organs in place. Consequently, the organs may fall or shift down into the pelvic area.

If you are one of these women, you shouldn’t feel embarrassed or alone. Take the first step and watch a recorded educational event to learn more about this condition as well as treatment options that may be right for you.

Agenda:
  • About Pelvic Organ Prolapse
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse Treatment Options
  • Q & A
