Uterine Prolapse is the downward displacement of any pelvic organ from its normal position. It usually involves the uterus and along with it bladder or rectum may also be involved. Complete Pelvic organ Prolapse is known as Procidentia.
Uterine Prolapse is most often attributed to childbirth injury or it may be due to inherent weakness of suspensary ligaments. Prolapse manifests most commonly after menopause when the production of ovarian hormones gradually stops and genital support weakens.
