- Prolapse symptoms - a feeling of a bulge in the vagina or rectum
- Urinary incontinence
- Bladder urgency and frequency
- Getting up to empty the bladder more frequently at night
- Sexual problems including pain with intercourse, a lack of sensation or lack of libido
- Bowel concerns - constipation or difficulty fully emptying the bowel
