Uterine prolapse is defined as a condition which occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken and are not able to provide enough support for the uterus. It can happen in women of any age, but it often affects postmenopausal women who have had one or more vaginal deliveries.
It occurs due to the weak pelvic muscles and supportive tissues. Weak pelvic muscles and tissues can be caused due to:
Mild uterine prolapse doesn’t show any signs or symptoms, but moderate to severe uterine prolapse have symptoms such as:
Uterine prolapse is usually diagnosed during a pelvic exam. During the exam, the doctor will ask you to bear down as if having a bowel movement. This will help the doctor to assess how far the uterus has slipped into the vagina.
The treatment of uterine prolapse depends on the severity of the condition and symptoms. If there are no or very few symptoms, then the doctor will ask you to do Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles, losing weight and treating constipation.
A vaginal pessary which is a plastic or rubber ring is inserted into the vagina to support the bulging tissues.
If the uterine prolapse is severe, then the doctor may recommend minimally invasive or vaginal surgery. Surgery can involve repair of weekend pelvic floor tissues or the removal of the uterus. Doctor recommends a hysterectomy if the condition is severe, but it possess long-term health risks such as increased risk of heart and blood vessel diseases.
