Prolapse and pelvic floor health in women: Why we need to talk about it

The most common symptom of prolapse is bowel and bladder incontinence, the latter of which affects more than a third of Australian women.

Symptoms also include uncomfortable feelings of fullness or swelling in the vagina, and for some women, sex may become painful.

While pregnancy and vaginal birth are the primary causes of prolapse, heavy lifting, chronic constipation, obesity, and ageing can also weaken the pelvic floor.

Contrary to popular belief, giving birth by caesarean section does not prevent pelvic floor problems either. Hormonal changes and the extra weight and pressure of a baby during pregnancy can also overstretch the pelvic floor muscles.

Prolapse symptoms may occur during pregnancy or following childbirth, but they are most common after menopause, when women's oestrogen levels — which help to keep the pelvic floor muscles well-toned — start to decline.

Strengthening the pelvic floor

Without intervention, pelvic floor problems usually become worse over time.

Girl Iam one to relate big time!!. the discharge is gross And I hate it just as much. but seeing that baby makes it worth it.! I always am constantly carrying a napkin and wiping myself, :). its gross but you will get used to it!.and the bladder problems
