Help for women with Pelvic Organ Prolapse is on its way
Pelvic organ prolapse affects millions of women in every single country around the world, yet this is one condition that has remained unspoken about. There is a certain embarrassment around a woman who has any kind of pelvic organ prolapse. That embarrassment leads to breakdown in communication between partners, distress and medical complications if not treated.
Many women are unaware they even have pelvic organ prolapse until it gets to the stage that they know something is drastically wrong with their body.
Fact: More money is spent on marketing a top brand product than on Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
There are different stages of prolapse and a grade 1 the women is unaware she has prolapsed.
There are different types of prolapse ranging from uterine prolapse to rectocele prolaspe.
How do you recognnise the signs? How do you even start to speak about it with your doctor or partner? Who do you turn to for support? Who will even understand what you are going through, after all you are the only one that this has happened to right? WRONG!
