Uterine prolapse

16:20 - 6 May , 2021

Disease

What is Uterine prolapse?

It refers to a gynecological problem, where the uterus, due to muscle weakness, cannot remain in place and collapses, placing significant pressure on the vagina.

Potential risks:

This anomaly tends to appear more frequently in women who have had natural deliveries and tends to be more recurrent over the years. Other types of health problems such as being overweight, obesity, or different hormonal problems, can increase the risk of their appearance. 

Symptoms

The most common symptoms include pelvic pain or discomfort, as well as increased vaginal discharge and/or bleeding.

Diagnosis and treatment

Your ABC doctor will perform a pelvic examination to make an accurate diagnosis and will recommend the most appropriate treatment according to the severity of the case. In some cases, surgery will be necessary to reposition the fallen uterus, while, in most cases, a more conservative treatment with medications to reduce discomfort may be enough.
