- Uterine prolapse occurs when the muscles and ligaments in the pelvic floor stretch and weaken and no longer provide adequate support to the uterus. As a result, the uterus slips down or protrudes from the vagina.
Uterine prolapse can occur in women of any age. But it often affects postmenopausal women who have had one or more vaginal deliveries. Uterine prolapse treatment in Hyderabad
Mild uterine prolapse usually doesn’t cause any signs or symptoms. Signs and symptoms of moderate to severe uterine prolapse include:
- Feeling heavy or tight in your pelvis
- Tissue sticking out of your vagina
- Urinary problems such as leaking urine (incontinence) or urine retention
- Difficulty having a bowel movement
- The feeling as if you are sitting on a small ball or something is falling out of your vagina
Uterine prolapse results from a weakening of the pelvic muscles and supporting tissue. Causes of weakened pelvic muscles and tissues are:
- Difficult labor and delivery or trauma during childbirth
- Birth of a big baby
- Be overweight or obese
- Lower levels of estrogen after menopause
Factors that can increase your risk of uterine prolapse include:
- One or more pregnancies and vaginal deliveries
- Bringing a big baby into the world
- Increasing age
- Previous pelvic surgery
Uterine prolapse is often associated with prolapse of other pelvic organs. You might encounter:
Previous prolapse (cystocele). Weak connective tissue between the bladder and vagina can cause the bladder to swell inside the vagina. The anterior prolapse is also known as the prolapsed bladder.
Posterior vaginal prolapse (rectocele). The weakness of the connective tissue that separates the rectum and vagina can cause the rectum to swell inside the vagina. You may have difficulty defecating. Uterine prolapse treatment in Hyderabad
