Pelvic prolapse, pelvic floor dysfunction tests

What is pelvic prolapse or pelvic floor dysfunction?

The Pelvic Floor is a sling that supports a woman's abdominal pelvic organs, including the bladder, urethra, uterus and bowel. It is made of connective tissue, ligaments and muscles.

In many women the supports within the pelvic floor can become stretched or damaged.

What type of pelvic floor problems occur?

Weakening of these supports can lead to:

  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • bladder problems
  • bowel problems
  • pelvic discomfort
  • back ache.

What treatments are recommended for pelvic prolapse and other pelvic problems?

Treatment for pelvic floor problems such as pelvic prolapse and pelvic floor dysfunction should be done by a qualified urogynaecologist. It may either be surgical or conservative (non surgical).

Before any surgery is done, you should have a thorough investigation - including a Urodynamic Study - to ensure there are no other underlying conditions.

Sydney Urodynamic Centres are highly qualified urodynamics specialists. We can conduct tests for pelvic floor problems and make recommendations for treatment to your doctor.
