Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate symptoms and bother in patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and to compare symptoms with POP-Q grading and measurements. One hundred and ten women with POP filled in a symptom-bother questionnaire concerning frequency of mechanical, bladder, bowel and sexual problems, and a 4-point bother score. The POP was grouped grade 0-1 versus grade >or=2 in each compartment. Symptoms more than once per week were associated with a higher bother score. Mechanical symptoms, reported in 70%, were the most troublesome. Various bladder, bowel and sexual symptoms were reported in 5%-52%, 5%-39%, and 35%-57%, respectively. We concluded that symptoms from all domains were frequent and reported generally and with little relation to prolapse in a specific compartment or POP-Q value.
