Learn what can cause the vagina and other pelvic organs to fall from their normal position.
Vaginal contraction occurs when the vagina falls from below normal to the opening of the vagina into the urethra.
In severe cases of elongation, the vagina may spread beyond the opening of the vagina.
Vaginal ridicule is rarely included in the vagina. Other pelvic organs, including the uterus and bladder, can also fall out of place. This condition can be referred to, collectively, as a development of the pelvic organ.
What Causes Prolapse?
The vagina and other pelvic organs are held in place by muscle and connective tissue. These muscles and tissues can be torn, stretched or weakened.
Urination can occur when these muscles and tissues do not support the proper positioning of the pelvic organs.
Risk factors for progress include:
Old age (slapping is most common in women over 60)
Hysterectomy (surgery to remove the uterus may increase the risk of certain dimensions)
Obesity (overweight or obese women are twice as likely to experience stroke as other women)
Chronic constipation, or difficulty passing bowel movements
Types of Vaginal Prolapse
Different parts of a woman’s penis in different dimensions include:
Cystocele occurs when the bladder and front wall of the vagina blink towards the opening of the vagina. This is sometimes called backwards.
Rectavillary occurs when the rectum and back wall of the vagina come down towards the opening of the vagina. It is also sometimes called posterior prolapse.
Enterovirus occurs when the small intestine moves out of place. It can push down on the upper part of the uterus or vagina, causing these organs to fall towards the opening of the vagina.
Pessary Device for Prolapse
An important nonsurgical treatment option for vaginal pessary prolapse.
Pessaries are silicone devices that sit inside the vagina to hold the limbs together. They come in different shapes and sizes.
Your doctor will help you make a choice based on your lifestyle, self-care abilities and other factors.
Pessaries must be removed and cleaned on a regular basis. Some types of pastries are easy to insert and remove at home.
Surgery for Prolapse
If urinary symptoms are not treated with psoriasis or other non-therapeutic treatments, your doctor may recommend surgery.
There are two main surgical procedures to correct the length of the vagina.
One type of surgery involves lowering or closing the vagina to provide support to remove the limbs.
Vaginal intercourse is not possible after this type of surgery.
In the second type of surgery, the surgeon will repair or suspend the pelvic organs and tissues that support the pelvic organs.
If the muscles and tissues are very weak, a surgical mesh can be used to keep the limbs in place.
Transvaginal mesh is a substance that is held through the vagina during surgery to keep long limbs in place.
There are several potential complications associated with transvaginal mesh, including:
A mesh cut occurs when the mesh moves through the vaginal wall, where it can damage surrounding organs. Additional surgery may be needed to resolve this issue.
Surgery involving the transvaginal mesh is usually reserved for women who have failed previous repair efforts, or who are too weak to repair their own pelvic organs.
