Prolapsed Uterus

Prolapsed Uterus at Buckshaw Hospital

Prolapsed Uterus Treatment

Prolapsed uterus treatment includes pelvic floor exercises, lifestyle changes, vaginal pessary, hormone treatment, and vaginal surgery.

Treatment for a uterine prolapse will depend on the extent of your uterine prolapse, your health and if you are planning for a future pregnancy.

What is Uterine Prolapse?

A uterine prolapse is when your uterus drops down into or towards your vagina.

What causes a Prolapsed Uterus? 

A prolapsed uterus is caused by weakening pelvic floor muscles and ligaments that are no longer able to support your uterus.

There are several factors that can contribute to your pelvic muscles to be less supportive. These include:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth - especially if you had a difficult birth or you gave birth to many or large babies.
  • Ageing
  • Lower oestrogen levels post menopause
  • Obesity
  • Chronic coughing
  • Chronic constipation or straining
  • Heavy lifting
