The human body is amazing and strong. However, it goes through many changes as a result of aging and normal wear and tear, not to mention childbirth for women. In fact, one of the common problems that women in particular face is a prolapsed bladder. It affects nearly 40% of women in the United States but can also affect men.
This condition is uncomfortable and usually requires treatment. Thankfully, there are non-invasive options that men and women can take advantage of as an alternative to surgery.
With that in mind, if you’re experiencing pelvic floor prolapse, this guide has the answer. Keep reading to discover your options and treatments available at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics.
In women, this includes the weakening of vaginal tissues. The bladder is held in place by the pelvic floor muscles and tissues within women. But when prolapse occurs, the tissues are stretched, become weak and cause the pelvic floor to drop and bulge into the vagina. It causes a hernia, and many women experience pressure in the vaginal area too.
This condition is also called a dropped uterus, dropped vagina, or a dropped rectum. Medical professionals refer to it as a cystocele.
Prolapse usually occurs as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. On the other hand, it happens to women who have never had kids as well. Additionally, prolapse is the side effect of chronic constipation, repetitive heavy lifting, severe coughing, and poor tissue integrity. It also occurs due to aging and menopause.
In addition to a bulge in the vaginal area, there are other symptoms associated with pelvic floor prolapse.
Symptoms include the following:
In most cases, a prolapsed bladder is a mild condition. It’s usually up to the discretion of the patient as to when to get the condition treated. However, if it’s left unattended, the condition could get worse over time.
In regard to postpartum bladder prolapse, new symptoms usually disappear within a year after delivery. The only time that the condition is considered severe is when there is urinary retention and the bladder is unable to empty itself. In this situation, the problem could lead to kidney damage or infection, and treatment is mandatory. However, urgent medical attention due to urinary tract infection is rare.
