Pelvic Organ Prolapse - Symptoms

Most women complain of the sensation of ‘a lump coming down’ or a feeling of discomfort or heaviness within the pelvis. The symptoms tend to worsen with prolonged standing and towards the end of the day.

Other complaints include pain during intercourse and chronic backache. Urinary symptoms like urgency, frequency of urination and a sensation of incomplete emptying may be experienced if the bladder is affected.

If the rectum is involved, women may complain of difficulty in opening the bowels and having to reduce the prolapse manually before passing motion.
