Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic Organ Prolapse occurs by weakened muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues, allowing an organ (or many at once) to fall through the pelvis. This can produce embarrassing, and more so, uncomfortable symptoms.

Symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse:

  • Pressure in the lower abdomen.
  • Pain or feeling of intense pressure with intercourse.
  • A bulge or the feeling of something falling out (that you can see or feel) in your vaginal area.

A2-Endometriosis-CTA-Thumbnail

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a tricky condition because the symptoms often do not match the severity of
the disease. For many women who do experience pelvic pain, a diagnosis is often delayed because they do not realize that the pain is abnormal.

Symptoms of Endometriosis:

  • Pain that resembles severe menstrual cramps in the abdomen and/or lower back.
  • Heavy menstrual flow.
  • Painful urination or bowel movements during periods.
  • Pain during intercourse.
  • Infertility.
