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

You may have symptoms if you have moderate to severe uterine prolapse including:
Symptoms may worsen during the day if you stand or walk for long periods of time as gravity places extra pressure on your pelvic muscles.
Prolapsed uterus treatment options will be discussed after a pelvic examination and a diagnosis is made.
Recommended uterine prolapse treatment is based on the severity of your uterine prolapse and symptoms, your health and age, and if you are planning to have children in the future.
