CAUSES OF A PROLAPSED UTERUS
CAUSES OF A PROLAPSED UTERUS
A uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus drops from its normal position. The cervix may descend into the vaginal opening. This condition affects approximately 11% of all women, usually in the post menopause years. However, it also occurs in young women and it may be caused by the childbirth of a large baby when the vaginal walls are damaged.
Multiple deliveries may also weaken the area and lead to a uterine prolapse. Other causes include constipation, obesity, and fibroid tumors. Sometimes in menopause the ligaments which hold the uterus in place lose some elasticity and strength due to reduced estrogen levels and this may lead to a uterine prolapse.
