Stress Urinary Incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the loss of urine that occurs during normal physical activities that put pressure or stress on the bladder, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, and exercising. One-third of women over age 45, and about half of all women over the age of 65, have or experience stress urinary incontinence.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when the pelvic floor muscles weaken, causing the pelvic organs to fall into the vagina. Women may experience pressure or feel a bulge near the opening of the vagina. POP is sometimes referred to as a "dropped bladder”, dropped uterus", "dropped vagina", or "dropped rectum”. POP occurs up to 50% of women over age 50.
