What is Uterine Prolapse?

Uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus (womb) slips out of place and into the vaginal canal due to weakening of the muscles and ligaments of the lower abdomen (called the â??pelvic floorâ?), which normally support the uterus and other organs in the pelvis. The severity of uterine prolapse is defined as:

  • First degree (mild)-the cervix (the lower opening of the uterus into the vagina) protrudes into the lower third of the vagina
  • Second degree (moderate)-the cervix protrudes past the vaginal opening
  • Third degree (severe)-the entire uterus protrudes past the vaginal opening
