Patient Question: Why do bladders fall in the first place?

While I consider our bodies miraculous there are a few common weaknesses. Men often get inguinal hernias. This is a weakness in the groin in the area that the testicles descend into the scrotum. Women have a common weakness in the vaginal area, especially after pregnancy. The pelvic floor hold the weight of the entire abdomen.

Why do bladders fall? Most people think of their bladder falling when they have issues in that area but it’s more complicated than that. Prolapse, which is the technical term for the drop you speak of, can happen to the urethra, bladder, cervix/uterus, intestine and rectum. A proper work up is needed to see if this needs treatment.
