Utero-Vaginal Prolapse

Utero-Vaginal Prolapse - Causes and Risk Factors

​What Causes The Prolapse?

This is due to a weakness in the supporting tissues of the uterus and vagina. The common factors leading to this are:

  • Pregnancy & Childbirth: When there can be excessive stretching of the tissues
  • After menopause: When a relative lack of female hormones can lead to thinning and weakening of the tissues

In addition, any condition that leads to an increase in the pressure in the abdominal cavity (e.g. chronic cough, constipation or heavy lifting) can aggravate the prolapse.
