Pelvic Floor Support
Uterine or Vaginal Prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken, providing inadequate support for the uterus. The uterus then descends into the vaginal canal. Uterine prolapse often affects postmenopausal women who’ve had one or more vaginal deliveries. Damage to supportive tissues during pregnancy and childbirth, effects of gravity, loss of estrogen, and repeated straining over the years all can weaken your pelvic floor and lead to uterine prolapse.
This can cause pain and discomfort or difficulty with bowel movements. The level of prolapse is what determines the type of repair needed. If you have mild uterine prolapse, treatment usually isn’t needed. But if uterine prolapse makes you uncomfortable or disrupts your normal life, you might benefit from treatment. Today, mesh is used for better support and longevity. There are different companies that make products for this repair and we will discuss this with you.
