A uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus falls into and sometimes extends out of the vagina. It is caused by weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. Uterine prolapse is most common in women post-menopause, especially for women who have had one or more vaginal births.
Symptoms include: a visual protruding of tissue from the vagina; feeling of fullness or looseness in the vagina; sensation that something is protruding from your vagina; constipation; and incontinence.
