Our pelvic floor holds up all of our pelvic organs—the vagina, cervix, uterus, bladder, urethra, intestines and rectum. If the muscles and tissue in our pelvic floor weakens, tears or stretches, it can cause the pelvic organs to drop—a condition known as pelvic organ prolapse. Women with prolapse usually have gradually developing symptoms that may include difficulty wearing a tampon, urinary or fecal incontinence, vaginal dryness and/or pain during intercourse. A feeling of vaginal heaviness and even the appearance of organs through the vagina or rectum are also possible.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, discuss this with your Women First provider. Usually, prolapse can be diagnosed with a simple pelvic exam. Some symptoms of prolapse will warrant imaging or other testing to reach a complete diagnosis. Once diagnosed, your provider may recommend nonsurgical treatment options such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or placement of a pessary, which is similar to a diaphragm that helps hold the bladder and uterus in place.

Sometimes, surgery is the best option for treating pelvic prolapse, whether it’s to restore the normal pelvic floor anatomy or to repair damaged muscle or tissue. Often, your Women First doctor is able to perform these surgical solutions in a minimally invasive way. Small incisions in the vagina or abdomen can be all that’s needed for laparoscopic techniques that get you through the procedure and recovery much quicker than with traditional, open surgery.

I've been seeing Dr. Price for many years and have always had a great experience with her. Dr. Price has always listened to me and addressed all of my questions and concerns. My only complaint is with a former nurse I saw for medical issues who didn't further investigate them and it got progressively worse. Luckily the current nurse practitioner diagnosed me correctly and have received the correct treatment.

When I was looking for a gyno, Jeanette and Dr. Booth came highly recommended from family that see them and rightly so! Jeanette has the best bedside manner and takes the time to be thorough and understand the patient. When I had an issue outside of office hours, I was able to submit a question on the Follow My Health app and got a phone call in less than 30 minutes from the care team. They’re the best and I tell everyone about them!

I’ve been a patient at Women 1st for 16 years and cannot say enough about this practice. Every staff member is caring, friendly, and very good at what they do. The physicians & nurses are some of the best in the state of Kentucky, which is why I currently live in Georgetown and drive to Louisville to continue my care. Highly recommend Dr. Warren or Dr. Price!
