Demographic data, defecatory dys- function and SF-36 scores were compared between the Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) may cause many symptoms that groups. Correlations between severity of posterior prolapse are commonly attributed to the anatomic compartments in- (Bp, Gh, Pb and Gh + Pb) and severity of bowel symptoms volved [1, 2].
