What is a Prolapsed Uterus?
A Prolapsed Uterus is a very serious medical condition which normally requires the immediate attention of a woman's ob-gyn or family medical provider.
A Prolapsed Uterus refers to a "collapsed" uterus, or descended uterus, or other change in the position of the uterus in relation to the surrounding structures within the pelvis. The pelvis contains many soft tissue structures vital to normal body functions, supported primarily by the diaphragms, layers of muscles, fibrous coverings called fasciae, and various ligaments and tendons. These soft tissues of the pelvis derive their ultimate support from the bony pelvis.
A woman's uterus is held in place within her pelvis by a number of ligaments, muscles and connecting tissues. During childbirth, particularly those women that experience either difficult labor and delivery, or extended L&D, these muscles and connecting tissues may weaken and no longer provide the support to keep her uterus in its' proper pelvic location. As women age, those with weakened muscles and ligaments of the uterus, now have the additional loss of estrogen, which may lead to her uterus collapsing or "falling" into her vagina. This is then referred to as a "prolapsed uterus."
Conditions that may also contribute to a prolapsed uterus include being overweight, hysterectomy/removal of the uterus, and any other surgeries that affect the ligaments, muscles or connecting tissues of a woman's uterus.
