Uterine Prolapse

The uterus also referred the womb well in place inside the pelvic region and held through various muscles, tissue as well as ligaments. Uterine Prolapse condition occurs when your Uterus slips down into or protrudes out of the Vagina.

Uterine prolapse may be incomplete or complete. An incomplete prolapse occurs when the uterus is only partly sagging into the vagina. Complete prolapse occurs when the uterus falls so far down that some tissue protrudes outside of the vagina.

This condition occurs when the ligaments and pelvic muscle floor weakens and no longer holds your vagina in place. This causes the vagina to slip down or even turn upside down.Do you want to know the treatment option? Please contact our doctor at Medfin. 

What is a Prolapsed Uterus?

The uterus also referred the womb well in place inside the pelvic region and held through various muscles, tissue as well as ligaments. Conditions like pregnancy, childbirth, extreme labor, and delivery in some cases weaken the muscles that hold the uterus in place. 

In addition, in aging women the estrogen level drops and thus leading to the condition called prolapsed uterus where the uterus drops from the pelvic region from the cervix into the vagina.

Depending on the quality of muscles and their strength, the uterus may sag to a certain degree of the total. The prolapsed uterus condition is considered in four degrees depending on the extent of dislocation of the uterus.

  • First degree: a condition where the cervix drops into the vagina.
  • Second degree: a condition where the cervix drops to the opening of the vagina.
  • Third degree: a condition where the cervix sags outside the vagina.
  •  Fourth degree: a condition where the entire uterus is outside the vagina. This condition is also called procidentia.
