Epidemiology

The overall incidence of genital prolapse is underestimated because of limited patient access to medical care, limited number of clinicians trained to recognize prolapse, mild cases of prolapse that may be asymptomatic and therefore unknown to the patient and ignored by the physician, as well as the patient's desire to not disclose her problem to the clinician. Therefore, the studies published to date that cite incidence and prevalence of genital prolapse can only be generalized to similar community settings rather than to worldwide populations. In addition, the incidence of grades of prolapse severity are unattainable because, to date, not all clinicians who treat genital prolapse use the POP-Q system, which is an objective tool used to grade genital prolapse. Typically, patients with genital prolapse have more than one area of weakness, with more severe prolapse in some areas, depending on the initial damage to the pelvic floor as well as the length of time the prolapse has gone untreated.
