Hysterectomy Video Treatment Of Uterine Prolapse
Many women have milder symptoms of uterine prolapse
throughout a larger part of life but think it is normal, and rarely
go to the doctor for medical evaluation.
The uterus is normally attached
to the pelvic floor. However, the supportive muscles and ligaments
can wear and tear during life, allowing the uterus, the bladder
or both to "fall" down
to the vagina. The reasons for prolapse may be one or more of the
-- giving birth to large babies, or difficult labor
and delivery in general,
-- less estrogen than usual (as in menopause), which
weakens the tissues,
-- additional weight or obesity,
-- frequent coughing, say from too much smoking,
-- chronic constipation and the straining to move
Symptoms of Uterine Prolapse
Some of the more important symptoms of uterine prolapse may be:
-- Heaviness or pulling down in the pelvis.
-- Intercourse painful or outright impossible, involuntary
leaking during the intercourse, no orgasm.
-- Pain in the vagina, pelvis, lower back, lower
abdomen, groin. As if the whole abdomen will fall out.
-- Frequent urge to urinate, with or without actual
-- Difficult bowel movements.
-- Moist discharge from vagina.

of uterine prolapse, is that when the uterus is totally prolapsed
and held outside to the extreme, it looks much like penis. It
is yet another proof of how human males and females are really
alike in a physiological sense...
