Best Uterus Prolapse Treatment

Overview

Uterine prolapse is a common disorder that appears in women of all ages. It occurs when the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments get stretched and weakened and no longer deliver enough support to the uterus. As a result, the uterus slips down or sticks outs out of the vagina.

Ā 

With time or with multiple vaginal deliveries during pregnancy years, the muscles and ligaments around the uterus get weakened or loosened. When the support structure starts failing the uterus can slip out of the original position.

Causes of Uterus Prolapse

The uterus is held firm within the pelvis by a group of muscles and ligaments. These are called the pelvic floor muscles. If these structures weaken, they arenā€™t able to hold the uterus properly begin to sag. Several factors that can contribute to the weakening of the pelvic muscles include:

  • Loss of muscle tone due to aging
  • Injury during childbirth, particularly due to several babies or large babies
  • Obesity
  • Chronic coughing and straining
  • Severe constipation
  • Low estrogen level after menopause
  • Lifting heavy objects

Symptoms of Uterine Prolapse

If the patient has a mild case of uterine prolapse, there may not show usual symptoms. If the uterus slips out of position, it will put pressure on other pelvic organs like the bladder or bowel and show symptoms such as:

  • There is a feeling of pressure or heaviness on pelvis.
  • Pain in the pelvis, abdomen, and lower back
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Uterine tissue falling via the opening of the vagina
  • Frequent bladder infection
  • Unusual or excess discharge from the vagina
  • Constipation
  • Urination problems, including urine incontinence

It can be very discomforting or may go worse if the person stands or walks for a long time. In such situations, gravity puts extra pressure on the pelvic muscles.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of uterine prolapse is generally done via pelvic exam. During the pelvic exam, the doctor may ask the following things:

  • Bearing down as if you have a bowel movement. Bearing down will help the doctor to access how far the uterus has been slipped out of the vagina.
  • For tightening the pelvic muscles as if you have stopped a stream of urine. This will show the strength of the pelvic muscles.

The patient may have to fill out a questionnaire that will help the doctor in assessing how uterine prolapse affects day-to-day lifestyle. This information helps in suggesting appropriate treatment decisions. If you have severe urinary incontinence, the doctor might recommend bladder tests to know the bladder functioning. Then, Ultrasound and MRI can be performed.

Treatment

  1. Medications: Estrogen could be the treatment option in certain women with prolapse. .
  2. Physical therapy: Physical therapy is also recommended such as pelvic floor exercises using biofeedback for strengthening of specific muscles of the pelvic floor
  3. Pessaries: Pessary is a prosthetic device that is inserted into the vagina to support the internal structure.
  4. Surgery
