When the tissues or muscles holding organs in place weaken and strain, a prolapse is the result. A pelvic prolapse occurs when the uterus or pelvic organs are shifted out of place because of the weakened tissue, and may sink into other areas. A pelvic or uterine prolapse can seriously affect your life in a variety of ways.

Pelvic Prolapse Information and Statistics

Studies suggest that one out of every 9 women is treated surgically for a prolapse before they reach the age of 90. Fifty percent of women that give birth deal with some type of prolapse, highlighting how common the condition truly is.

Causes of Pelvic or Uterine Prolapse

Strain or weakening on the muscles and tissues holding organs in place is what typically causes a prolapse, but certain life factors and illnesses can create the tension on the area.

  • Vaginal childbirth
  • Lowered levels of estrogen, particularly after menopause
  • Aging
  • Excessive lifting or coughing
  • Obesity
  • Tumors of the pelvis
  • Long periods of standing
  • Constipation

Symptoms of prolapse may be exacerbated by strain during bowel movements, childbirth or sexual intercourse.

Common Symptoms of Prolapse

Mild cases of prolapse may be unnoticed for long periods of time, but severe cases are usually noticed quickly due to pain and discomfort. Common symptoms of pelvic or uterine prolapse include:

  • Recurring bladder infections
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constant need to urinate
  • Pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse
  • Constipation
  • Vaginal blood or discharge
  • Sensation of sitting on a small ball where organs may protrude out of the vagina

Treatment of Uterine Prolapse

Milder conditions may not require treatment, but others can be treated with the minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries at miVIP.

A vaginal pessary may be suggested to hold your pelvic organs in place. During the surgery, your doctor will place a device inside the vagina that supports the uterus and prevents prolapse.

Serious cases of prolapse may be treated with a hysterectomy. During this surgery, the uterus is removed, along with any other reproductive organs that appear to be causing the problem. This is performed with an open incision for more complex cases, but can be done through the vagina or laparoscopically if you are considered a good candidate for treatment.

Long Term Prognosis

With the aid of treatment and surgery, uterine prolapse can be almost completely reversed. When treated properly by a qualified gynecologist, your organs are restored to their proper place and your life is yours to live again.
