Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic Organ Prolapse - Diagnosis

You will be referred to a urogynaecologist who will examine you and grade the degree of pelvic organ prolapse.

Additional tests may be needed, depending on the degree of prolapse and other additional symptoms noted by the patient. These include bladder urodynamics studies, a urethral pressure profile, and an ultrasound of the gynaecological organs or the urinary system.

The different grades of pelvic organ prolapse

The grading of pelvic organ prolapse is as follows:

  • First degree: The lowest part of the prolapse lies above the introitus (opening of the vagina).
  • Second degree: The lowest part of the prolapse extends to the level of the introitus on straining.
  • Third degree: The lowest part of the prolapse extends through the introitus and lies outside the vagina.
