Uterine Prolapse - Overview

Uterine prolapse, a condition where the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments supporting the uterus weaken, often occurs in old age or following deliveries or surgical interventions. This weakening can result in the uterus slipping down or protruding out of the vagina.

Minimal uterine prolapse typically doesn't require treatment. However, if symptoms or discomfort arise, intervention becomes essential. Various treatment options, including surgical and non-surgical approaches, exist to address uterine prolapse based on its severity and impact on well-being.

In surgical interventions such as prolapsed uterus surgery or pelvic organ prolapse surgery, the goal is to restore the normal position of pelvic organs, including the uterus. Non-surgical treatments may involve the use of a pessary for uterine prolapse, a device placed in the vagina to provide support. Additionally, exercises and lifestyle modifications serve as non-surgical approaches.

For those exploring uterine prolapse treatment options:

  • Dropped uterus treatment
  • Womb prolapse treatment
  • Cure for prolapsed uterus
  • Fallen uterus treatment
  • Genital prolapse treatment
  • Prolapse womb surgery
  • Uterine prolapse sling surgery
  • Uterovaginal prolapse surgery

In conclusion, understanding the range of treatment options for uterine prolapse is crucial for tailoring interventions to individual needs. Whether through surgical procedures, non-surgical approaches, or a combination of both, seeking professional medical advice is key to managing uterine prolapse effectively and improving the quality of life for affected individuals.

---- FAQs ----


Your healthcare provider may use a system to classify uterine prolapse. The stages of uterine prolapse are:

  • Stage I: Your uterus drops into the upper part of your vagina.
  • Stage II: Your uterus falls into the lower part of your vagina.
  • Stage III: Your uterus is protruding from your vagina.
  • Stage IV: Your entire uterus slips outside of your vagina.

Uterine prolapse is a fairly common condition. Your risk of developing the condition increases with age. You’re also at a higher risk of uterine prolapses if you’ve had multiple vaginal deliveries.

Uterine prolapse can disrupt normal activities and be uncomfortable. Very mild cases may not require treatment or cause any discomfort. However, severe cases may make it difficult to pee or have a normal bowel movement. Uterine prolapse is typically a quality of life issue, and healthcare providers treat it when symptoms of the condition begin to interfere with your daily life.

It depends on the severity of the prolapse. In mild cases where your quality of life isn’t affected, your healthcare provider may not recommend treatment. Uterine prolapse can affect other organs in the pelvic area of your body (like your bladder and rectum). Healthcare providers typically recommend treatment when uterine prolapse becomes bothersome.

No, you can’t push your uterus back up. Only your healthcare provider can treat a prolapsed uterus.
