What is uterine prolapse?

Uterine prolapse is when the uterus (womb) falls down the vagina or protrudes outside the body. This occurs as the supporting muscles and tissues become weakened and less elastic and are unable to maintain the uterus in its normal position. This condition is more common after multiple childbirths or with increasing age. Depending on the degree of prolapse, this can cause pelvic pain, problems with urination and with bowel movements.

Symptoms of uterine prolapse

  • Feeling that my uterus has dropped down, or something is coming out of the vagina

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge e.g. in color, smell, or quantity

  • Need to strain or bear down to pass urine, in the past month

  • Itching around the genital area

  • Have given birth at least once before

  • Overweight

  • Pain during sex

Questions your doctor may ask to check for uterine prolapse

  • Do you feel your uterus dropping or something protruding from your vagina?

  • Have you experienced vaginal bleeding or discharge outside of your periods or after menopause?

  • Have you noticed any changes in your vaginal discharge?

  • Have you had difficulty urinating recently?

  • Do you have any vaginal itching?

Treatment for uterine prolapse

In some cases, inserting a pessary (plastic or rubber ring) into the vagina can help support the uterus, and reduce some of the associated symptoms. However in many cases, surgery may be required to correct this condition.
