What is pelvic organ prolapse?

Pelvic organ prolapse is when the tissues that hold the pelvic organs in place become weak or stretched.  When pelvic organ prolapse occurs, pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, rectum, or the top of the vagina prolapse (bulge) into the vagina, sometimes the prolapse or bulge can extend past the opening of the vagina.
