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. Women with pelvic organ prolapse often have a sense of continual heaviness in the vagina or pelvis. They may complain of a feeling similar to “sitting on a ball,” notice a bulge or mass protruding from the vaginal area, experience discomfort during intercourse, suffer with urinary incontinence or bowel problems.

If you are one of these women, you shouldn’t feel embarrassed or alone. Chances are very good you know someone -- perhaps a girlfriend, neighbor or relative -- who is affected by this condition. Take the first step and attend a FREE upcoming educational event to learn more about this condition as well as treatment options that may be right for you.
