Surgical treatments are most commonly recommended to women with more severe cases of pelvic organ prolapse who have been suffering greatly from pain or discomfort or whose daily lives have been limited by the unfortunate effects so commonly caused by the disorder. Several things may determine whether surgery is ever even recommended, however, including a woman’s age, her desire to have children in the future, her sexual history, and the degree of severity of both the prolapse and the symptoms involved.
Surgery can be performed either vaginally or through the abdomen; and, depending on the diagnosis, surgical mesh may be considered necessary in addition to any stitches that are required. Because it is more invasive, surgery allows greater access to the areas effected, which means that the the vagina can be repositioned to its natural place; the tissue surrounding the vagina can be repaired; the vaginal canal can be closed permanently, even if the uterus is not being removed; and measures can be taken to ensure that incidences of urinary leakage are prevented or significantly reduced, in which case surgical mesh may be considered beneficial.
