    • Uterine Prolapse: the uterus descends into the vaginal canal due to a weakness and stretching of the pelvic floor muscles  and ligaments which support the uterus.
    • Enterocele: occurs when the small intestines descends into the lower pelvic cavity, creating a bulge or hernia of the upper part of the vagina.
    • Rectocele: occurs when the thin walls of fibrous tissue (fascia) separating the rectum from the vagina becomes weakened, allowing the rectum to create a bulge in the back wall of the vagina.
    • Cystocele: occurs when the thin wall of fibrous tissue (fascia) separating the bladder from the vagina wall becomes weakened, allowing the bladder to drop down and create a bulge in the front wall of the vagina.
