Incontinence & Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Entrepreneur Cheryl Wee shares her postpartum experience dealing with incontinence and how she found out about pelvic organ prolapse.
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.
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.
