The uterus (womb) is a muscular structure that’s held in place by pelvic muscles and ligaments. If these muscles or ligaments stretch or become weak, they’re no longer able to support the uterus, causing prolapse. As a result, the uterus slips down into or protrudes out of the vagina. Uterine prolapse can occur in women of any age. Mild uterine prolapse usually doesn't require treatment. But if uterine prolapse makes you uncomfortable or disrupts your normal life, you might benefit from treatment.
Symptoms of Uterine Prolapse - Mild uterine prolapse generally doesn't cause signs or symptoms. Signs and symptoms of moderate to severe uterine prolapse include:
Sensation of heaviness or pulling in your pelvis
Tissue protruding from your vagina
Urinary problems, such as urine leakage (incontinence) or urine retention
Trouble having a bowel movement
Feeling as if you're sitting on a small ball or as if something is falling out of your vagina
Sexual concerns, such as a sensation of looseness in the tone of your vaginal tissue
Reasons for Uterine Prolapse -Uterine prolapse results from the weakening of pelvic muscles and supportive tissues. Causes of weakened pelvic muscles and tissues include:
Difficult labor and delivery or trauma during childbirth
Delivery of a large baby
Being overweight or obese
Lower estrogen level after menopause
Chronic constipation or straining with bowel movements
Heavy weight lifting
Diagnosis of Uterine Prolapse Gynaecologist can diagnose uterine prolapse by evaluating your symptoms and performing a pelvic exam. During this exam, your doctor will insert a device called a speculum that allows them to see inside of the vagina and examine the vaginal canal and uterus. You may be lying down, or your doctor may ask you to stand during this exam. Your doctor may ask you to bear down as if you’re having a bowel movement to determine the degree of prolapse.
Dr Neha Chandra is one of the finest surgeon when it comes to the surgical treatment of Prolapsed Uterus. If uterine prolapse is severe, your doctor might recommend surgery. Minimally invasive (laparoscopic) or vaginal surgery might be an option. Surgery can involve:
Repair of weakened pelvic floor tissues - This surgery is generally approached through the vagina but sometimes through the abdomen. The surgeon might graft your own tissue, donor tissue or a synthetic material onto weakened pelvic floor structures to support your pelvic organs.
Removal of your uterus (hysterectomy) Hysterectomy might be recommended if uterine prolapse is severe. Hystrectomy can be done through the Vaginal route, abdominal route or through laparoscopy. The cost of this surgery would be Rs. 50k to 70k with 2-3 days of stay in the hospital. For query please whatsapp at +91-6396852220 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
