Uterine Prolapse (prolapsed uterus) – Pelvic organ prolapse – Stage 0 to 42021-03-05T10:21:28+00:00


A uterine prolapse (Utero-Vaginal) occurs when the ligaments of the uterus are stretched due to weakness in the pelvic floor resulting in the uterus slipping down into the vaginal passage. Cystocele and Rectocele can also lead to development of a uterine prolapse. With this type of pelvic organ prolapse, you will feel the uterus bulging into the vagina. Uterine prolapse is measured in stages ranging from stage 1 which is a minor prolapse, to stage 4 which is complete prolapse. It is very important to begin pelvic floor muscle training as soon as possible to regain the strength in your pelvic floor and lessen the symptoms of your prolapse.

Because this type of pop causes the womb to slip down into the vagina, the bowel and bladder can be impacted as the uterine support ligaments play a role in the overall stability within the pelvic bowl. Issues with urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and sexual dysfunction can occur with uterine prolapse. With a full uterine prolapse, the entire uterus is outside the body. If you believe your uterus has prolapsed outside your body, you should see a pelvic health specialist immediately.

You can see the changes between stage 0 and 1, stage 1 and 2 and stage 2 and 3 but dragging on the purple sliders on the images below.

Note: Surgery is often required when prolapse has reached stages 3 or 4.

If you are suffering from a prolapse, it is important to keep your stool soft and to prevent straining. Pelvic organ prolapses are an indication that the pelvic floor is sitting lower than it should, and that the connective tissue structures within the pelvis have been stretched. By working on increasing the strength and tone of your pelvic floor muscles, combined with hypopressive style exercises that work to enhance the relationship between the diaphragm and pelvic floor, you can make a positive difference to the grade of you prolapse. Connective tissue takes longer to repair than muscle fibres, but they do respond given sufficient time.

Make sure to avoid constipation as the bearing down when constipated can stretch the tissues further causing a worsening of your prolapse. You can find many videos on our YouTube channel giving tips on preventing constipation and demonstrating pelvic floor exercises and hypopressive techniques that if practiced consistently over time, will help to lessen your symptoms and improve the grade of your pelvic organ prolapse.
