Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence refers to weakness of bladder. This could affect anyone but females are twice as likely to suffer from incontinence as compared to males. This is due to factors such as pregnancy, childbirth and hormonal changes as women age.

This most common form of incontinence is Stress Urinary Incontinence which is urinary leakage during a sneeze, cough or during exercise.

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) happens when the muscles and ligaments in the pelvic floor are impaired causing the pelvic organs such as the bladder, bowel or uterus to sag or bulge out into the vagina or rectal opening.

A pelvic organ prolapse could start out mild with a small bulge at the opening of the vagina or rectum. This is commonly accompanied with incontinence and a feeling of heaviness in the pelvis area.
