prolapse is a health condition that occurs when the muscular support
for the woman's uterus is lost. The uterus is normally supported by
the pelvic muscles and supporting ligaments. When these muscles become
weakened or injured, uterine prolapse can occur. In mild cases, a
portion of the uterus descends into the top of the vagina. In more
serious cases, the uterus may even protrude through the vaginal
opening, and can be accompanied by a cystocele (a bladder that bulges
into the front wall of the vagina) or a urethrocele (a urethra that
does the same). In some instances, the rectum may bulge into the back
wall of the vagina, a condition known as rectocele. Symptoms of
prolapse of the uterus can include backache,
abdominal discomfort, a feeling of heaviness, and urinary incontinence,
especially stress incontinence (the involuntary passage of urine when
straining, sneezing, or otherwise putting pressure on the abdomen).
Other symptoms can include excessive menstrual bleeding, abnormal
vaginal discharge or bleeding, painful intercourse, and constipation.
However, a woman with a prolapsed uterus may not exhibit any symptoms
at all. Women who have had several children and/or who have gone
through difficult and prolonged labor are more prone to prolapse.
Other factors that can increase the chances of uterine prolapse
include obesity, uterine cancer, diabetes,
chronic bronchitis, asthma,
heavy lifting or straining (particularly if the pelvic muscles are
already weakened), and a retroverted uterus (a uterus that is tilted
toward the back of the body). Two thirds of all women who prolapse
their uterus do it before reaching 55 years of age.
