What Will Happen If Your Uterus Falls Down Into The Vagina?

Uterine prolapse is serious, not because it uncharacteristically causes major medical problems, but because it gradually steals an individual’s life away. As the prolapse deteriorates, the symptoms upsurge. Many individuals start to limit what they do to assuage the symptoms.

What Happens If The Uterus Falls Out?

Uterine prolapse is often related with prolapse of other pelvic organs. You may experience:

  • Anterior prolapse (cystocele). Feebleness of connective tissue splitting the bladder and vagina might cause the bladder to bulge into the vagina. Anterior prolapse is also termed prolapsed bladder.
  • Posterior vaginal prolapse (rectocele). Weakness of connective tissue segregating the rectum and vagina might cause the rectum to protrude into the vagina. You may have trouble having bowel movements.

Severe uterine prolapse can dislocate part of the vaginal lining, triggering it to obtrude outside the body. Vaginal tissue that rubs against clothing can result in vaginal sores (ulcers.) Seldom, the sores can become infested.

Prevention Of Prolapsed Uterus

You might not be able to avert uterine prolapse, but you can lessen your risk by:

  • keeping your weight in the standard range;
  • practicing pelvic floor workouts regularly, if possible daily;
  • circumventing constipation and straining with bowel movements by eating a well-adjusted diet that encompasses adequate fibre; and
  • Avoiding hefty lifting.

In cases where the prolapse is minor or not troublesome to the patient, no treatment might be essential. Pelvic floor muscle exercises (Kegel exercises) fortify the pelvic floor muscles that support the uterus and might be helpful for some patients.
