Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common gynecologic condition causing symptoms in 4-8% of women. Women with prolapse beyond the hymen are more likely to present with obstructive voiding symptoms such as hesitancy, weak or intermittent flow, sensation of incomplete emptying or require splinting to facilitate voiding. When these symptoms are present further evaluation should begin.
