Treatments for female urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse

Treatments for female urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP)

Pages: 47 - 53

Article topics: Female urinary incontinence, Patient education, treatments

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence (UI) are common problems experienced by women of all ages. With the publication of Seizing the opportunity to improve patient care: Pelvic floor services in 2021 and beyond (Pelvic Floor Society, 2021) comes recognition of how common pelvic floor disorders are, but how little investment
has been put into these services. Such publications highlight the need for services to be provided which encourage women to come forward to be assessed and treated. This article, the second in a two-part series, discusses conservative treatments for UI and POP, which should be considered as first-line options where possible (National Institute
for Health and Care Excellence [NICE], 2021) and are easily started in primary care.
