Pelvic Organ Prolapse
- Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the uterus or vaginal wall drop from their normal position. This is usually a gradual process that happens over time.

Leaking that occurs when you cough, sneeze, change positions or lift a heavy object. Childbirth puts considerable strain on the pelvic muscles, increasing the chance of developing urinary problems. Other factors also contribute including constipation, decrease in estrogen after menopause, obesity and excessive coughing.

- A UTI happens when bacteria get into the bladder and multiply.
