Uterine Prolapse

What is Uterine Prolapse?

Uterine Prolapse describes the situation where the position of the uterus has shifted towards the vaginal opening. Left untreated the uterus eventually leaves the body entirely, and hangs within an inverted vagina.

Why does Uterine Prolapse occur?

Uterine Prolapse occurs due to either damage or weakening of the connective tissue attachments of the uterus, damage or weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, or a combination of both.

The two most common causes are vaginal birth (causing damage) and menopause (causing weakening).

What treatment options are there for Uterine Prolapse?

The Specialist Gynaecologists at Gynae North can treat uterine prolapse using:

  1. Re-oestrogenization of the vaginal and pelvis in menopausal women. 
  2. Strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles through rehabilitative physiotherapy.
  3. Surgically removing the uterus and repairing the damaged uterine and pelvic floor connective tissue supports.
