Pelvic organ prolapse is not uncommon—some estimates say that 3.3 million women in the U.S. have it in some form.
For many of those women, physical therapy will ease minor symptoms. For others, particularly those who come in and say, ‘my doctor told me I have this . . .’ and they have no symptoms, I suggest taking a wait-and-see approach because the condition is not dangerous to a woman’s health. But symptoms can worsen, and when that happens, we can discuss treatment.
