General Info about Prolapse of Uterus
Prolapse of the uterus refers to the downward displacement of the vagina and uterus.
The word prolapse is derived from the latin "procidere" which means with effect to fall. The uterus is held in position by adequate ligaments. Besides, it has the support of the muscular structures of vagina and all other local tissues and muscles. Due to the laxity of support by muscles, tissue and ligaments, the uterus sags downwards.
