Introduction: Pelvic organ prolapse is a common condition that occurs in parous women and affects the quality of life of women. The present study aimed to evaluate the incidence of recurrent prolapse. Materials and methods: In a cross-sectional study evaluated 365 women attending two public centers of Ilam, West of Iran. Sampling was done by the simple random sampling method. All women participated in the study except for single, pregnant, lactate and women receiving hormone replacement therapy. Subjects evaluated according to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification technique. SPSS software Package 14 was used to analyze the data. Results: Overall, 18.35 % of all participants have a history of pelvic operation for prolapse of the pelvic organs. There was a significant association between the history of anterior and posterior repair and current prolapse (P=0. 013). The correlation between previous hysterectomy and prolapse not significant (P=0. 243). Conclusion: This study indicates that pelvic organ prolapse surgery does not always prevent recurrent POP. Therefore, the gynecologist must be considering the recurrent risk of pelvic organ prolapse during preoperative patient counseling, particularly when surgery has been performed just to improve the women´s quality of life.
Keywords: Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q), Prolapse grade, Prolapse severity
