Is A Uterine Prolapse An Emergency?

If you have no symptoms or a slight prolapse that is not hurting you, you may not need medical attention. However, a few lifestyle adjustments may still be beneficial.

  • If you’re overweight, you should try to shed some pounds
  • Avoid hard lifting
  • Constipation prevention and treatment

Further treatment options should be considered if the prolapse is more severe or if your symptoms are disrupting your everyday life.

  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • vaginal pessaries
  • surgical procedures

Depending on the nature and degree of the prolapse, as well as your symptoms and general health, a treatment plan may be prescribed.

Causes of pelvic organ prolapse

Prolapse of the pelvic organs is caused by a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles and tissues, which typically support the pelvic organs.

Pelvic organ prolapse may occur as a result of a weak pelvic floor, which can be caused by a variety of factors.

There are a number of factors that can cause abdominal pain, such as:

  • pregnancy and childbirth, especially if you had to give birth to a large or multiple babies;
  • getting older and going through the menopause;
  • being overweight;
  • having long-term constipation or a long-term health condition that causes you to cough and strain;

These include joint hypermobility syndrome, Marfan syndrome, and other Ehlers-Danlos-related diseases.

Various forms of prolapse may occur.

It’s important to know that there are four basic forms of prolapse: anterior (the bladder bursting into the front wall of the vagina), uterine prolapse (the womb drooping or falling into the vagina), top (the top of the vagina sagging down) and rear (the back of the vagina sliding forward) (posterior wall prolapse)
