The vaginal canal is one of several organs located in the pelvic region of the body. Muscles and other tissue keep these organs in place. This group of muscles works together to form a support structure. This support structure can begin to deteriorate over time. Vaginal prolapse occurs when the vaginal wall falls out of place. Women who have had multiple vaginal deliveries during delivery, have gone through menopause, smoke, or are overweight are more likely to have this condition. As you become older, your chances of suffering a prolapse rise as well. The mean age of the Indian woman who suffers from prolapse is 50+ years of age.

Free Doctor Assessment
You might not always notice any indications of prolapse in many cases. However, if you do have symptoms, they may include:
- Lower back pain
- Bladder infections
- Problems during intercourse
- Problems with bowel movement
Vaginal prolapse is frequently diagnosed during an appointment with your healthcare professional. Your doctor will perform a physical exam and ask you about any symptoms of pelvic fullness or urine incontinence (leakage). You can be asked about your family history and past pregnancies as well.
As previously said, you may not have any symptoms, and the prolapse may be discovered during a normal examination with your gynaecologist.
Depending on the degree of your vaginal prolapse, you may need different treatments. In certain circumstances, your doctor may merely want to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t grow worse.
Vaginal prolapse can be treated with both non-surgical and surgical methods. These therapies are extremely similar to uterine prolapse therapy alternatives.
