Uterine Prolapse

The uterus (womb) is supported by the ‘hammock’ of pelvic floor muscles, tissue and ligaments. When these structures are too weak the uterus slips downwards from its natural anatomical position into the vaginal cavity.

Some women experience the shift until it is visible outside the vagina.

This is known as a procidentia.


Some women are unaware that they have a slight drop of the uterus (grade 1 prolapse) and the first signs maybe stress incontinence or unable to retain a tampon maybe noticed.

 

Some women experience ‘a fullness’ ‘a bulging’ or a feeling of ‘a ball’ inside the vagina. This may be classed as a grade 2 or 3 prolapse.

 

It is always advisable to seek professional medical advice if you experience this, as there are several methods of solution your doctor may propose, and not all are necessarily surgery related.

 

There are pessaries available which can sucessfully treat a uterine prolapse.
