Marked perineal deficiency

Hi I just wondered if anyone would know what is meant by marked perineal deficiency? I’m due to have a prolapse posterior repair and in the letter that was mentioned I had forceps with the delivery of my son just wondered if it had anything to do with that

Many thanks for taking the time to read

Google perineum deficiency, explains it easier that I can.


Thank you for ur help I just wondered what they meant by marked ?


Clearly visible.


Thank you that’s a great help x


I had a prolapse repair 10 weeks ago. I had “marked perineal descent” so had that repaired at the same time. Still have some stitches but overall not as painful as I was expecting!
