What is uterine prolapse?

When the pelvic muscles and tissue weaken, uterine prolapse develops. The weakness allows the womb to enter your duct. It can sometimes escape through your epithelial duct gap. According to the Best fertility & IVF Specialist, This disease affects about half of all women between the ages of fifty and seventy-nine.

Uterine Prolapse Causes

Prolapses of the uterus occur if muscles and connective tissues such as ligaments are weakened or injured and the uterus can sink into the vagina. Pregnancy, birth, hormonal changes following menopause, obesity and intense coughing, and toilet strain are common reasons of 

Uterine Prolapse.

Risk factors:

  • Having a baby (highest risk)
  • Vaginal delivery is a kind of childbirth (vs. C-section)
  • Menopause
  • Caucasian ethnicity
  • Overweightness
  • Smoking


Many women with this disease show no symptoms. However, if symptoms appear, they include:

  • Excreta leakage
  • Inability to empty your bladder
  • A sensation of heaviness or fullness in your pelvic
  • Bulging in your ductwork
  • Backache in the lower back
  • Aching or a sense of pressure in your lower abdomen or pelvic
  • Constipation\sDiagnosis

If your care provider believes you have a prolapsed womb, he or she will most likely perform a physical examination to visualize your pelvic. If you also experience incontinence or are unable to empty your bladder, your doctor may do a cystoscopy to examine your bladder and epithelial duct.

Your doctor may also request a computed tomography scan (magnetic resonance imaging). A magnet and radio waves are used in this process to create images. This enables your care provider to do a thorough examination of your kidneys and other girdle organs.

What is the treatment for uterine prolapse?

If your symptoms concern you or make you uncomfortable during daily activities, speak with your doctor about treatment options. Changes in lifestyle, such as reducing weight, may be beneficial. Doing Kegel exercises might also help. To do this exercise, squeeze the muscles that regulate the flow of urine and hold for up to 10 seconds before releasing. Do this 50 times a day.

A pessary might also help to alleviate symptoms. This is a device that your doctor will implant into your vagina to support your pelvic organs.

Is it possible to avoid uterine prolapse?

There is no sure technique to avoid uterine prolapse. However, the following measures can help reduce your risk:

  • Lose extra weight.
  • To avoid constipation and straining, eat a diet high in fiber and water.
  • Avoid Heavy lifting.
  • If you smoke, you should stop.
  • Seek immediate treatment for a persistent cough, which can put additional strain on your pelvic organs.
  • Kegel exercises might help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
  • These measures may also be beneficial if you already have uterine prolapse.

Consult your doctor as soon as your symptoms begin to worry you. Don’t wait until your pain gets unbearable. Regular pelvic examinations can aid in the early detection of uterine prolapse.


Another pelvic organ prolapse is frequently linked with uterine prolapse. You may encounter:

  • Prolapse of the anterior uterus (cystocele). Because of a weakness in the connective tissue that separates the bladder and the vagina, the bladder may protrude into the vagina. 
  • Posterior vaginal prolapse is a kind of vaginal prolapse (rectocele). The rectum may protrude into the vagina due to a weakness in the connective tissue that separates it from the vagina. You may have troublesome bowel motions.

Severe uterine prolapse can cause a portion of the vaginal lining to protrude outside the body. Vaginal tissue rubbing across clothes might cause vaginal sores (ulcers.)
