Introduction and hypothesis: The aim of this descriptive study was to assess the severity of symptoms and their impact on quality of life in women with a diagnosis of urogenital prolapse. Methods: The study included a total of 179 women with a diagnosis of urogenital prolapse who applied to the gynecology outpatient clinic of Etlik Z?beyde Hanım Women?s Health Teaching and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey, between July- October 2010. The ?Descriptive Information Questionnaire? developed by the authors and an adapted version of ?The Prolapsus-Related Quality of Life (P-QOL) Questionnaire? were used to collect data. The SPSS 15.0 software package was used for statistical analysis. Results: In this study, 68.1% of women recruited from the gynecology outpatient clinic were aged 52 and over, and 46.9% had graduated from primary school. 44.1% of women?s parity was 3-4, 97% of women had a history of giving birth vaginally. 72.6% of women were in the postmenopausal period and 29.1% of women had a history of urogenital prolapse in their family. 77.7% of women had not previously applied to a hospital, even though they had experienced symptoms related to urogenital prolapse, 43.6% of women had applied to a hospital concerning urinary incontinence. It was found that 52% of women were diagnosed with cystocele , 57% had a third degree or higher urogenital prolapse. Urogenital prolapse affects women?s general health perceptions, physical-social activities, personal relationships, quality of sleep.
