This causes the pelvic organs to become displaced. Symptoms of POP include the following: Feeling of pressure or falling out within the pelvis or perineum Difficulty emptying bladder or rectum Urinary urgency or frequency Urinary or Fecal Incontinence Pelvic Pain Sometimes pelvic pain develops due to illness, injury, surgery or pregnancy. However, very often the origin of pain is not known. Pelvic Physical Therapy can be very helpful in identifying possible pain sources.
