What is Uterine Prolapse ?

Uterine prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken and no longer provide enough support for the uterus. As a result, the uterus slips down into or come through out of the vagina. Uterine prolapsed can occur in women of any age. If you have pelvic organ prolapsed, you'll notice a bulge at the opening of the vagina. The bulge isn't dangerous, but it can be very uncomfortable. When the prolapsed pulls the bladder downward, it bends the urethra. As a result, you might have trouble urinating fully.

Symptoms of prolapsed uterus:

  • Sensation of heaviness or pulling in your pelvis
  • Tissue comes through out your vagina.
  • Urinary problems, such as urine leakage or urine retention.
  • Trouble having a bowel movement.
  • You will feel like sitting on ball or as if something is falling out from your vagina.
  • Sexual concerns, such as a sensation of looseness in the tone of your vaginal tissue.

There are many reasons of uterine prolapsed. Uterine prolapsed results from the weakening of pelvic muscles and supportive tissues.

Treatment of uterine prolapsed

When a woman's uterine prolapsed is mild, observation may be the best treatment. Kegel exercises, weight loss, pelvic floor therapy and a pessary can work for some uterine prolapsed. When these fail, we have surgical options, which can include hysterectomy when the uterus is prolapsing
