Vaginal Prolapse Treatment
Plaza OB/GYN and its expert OBGYN doctors give patients innovative vaginal prolapse treatment in Houston.
To keep the vagina and other organs in place, a number of ligaments and muscles offer support and strength. When these pelvic and vaginal muscles become weaker, some of these organs lose support. Vaginal prolapse develops when these muscles lose support and cause the vagina to slide down and change position. As this collection of muscles weakens, other organs including the bladder, urethra and uterus begin to shift.
What is Vaginal Prolapse?
Vaginal prolapse is common in women, with 1-in-3 having the chance to experience pelvic prolapse in their lifetimes. Women who develop vaginal prolapse have generally gone through childbirth, menopause or a hysterectomy. With these conditions in mind, women who experience vaginal prolapse do so generally after they reach 40 years of age. Although not every woman experiences symptoms from vaginal prolapse, those who do feel:
- Vaginal or pelvic pressure
- Frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Painful intercourse
- Increased pressure when standing up
- Protrusion in the vagina
Vaginal Prolapse Treatment Options
The Plaza OB/GYN doctors offer several options for surgery to correct vaginal prolapse. They are experienced with the most advanced procedures as well as with more traditional treatments. Each patient with vaginal prolapse will need a treatment to address her symptoms and needs.
