Prolapse of Uterus Diagnosis

Font : A-A+

How can we diagnose Prolapse of Uterus ?

A pelvic examination (with the woman bending down) reveals protrusion of the cervix into the lower part of the vagina (mild prolapse), upto the vaginal opening (moderate prolapse), or protrusion of the entire uterus outside the vaginal opening (severe prolapse).

These signs are often accompanied by protrusion of the bladder and front wall of the vagina (cystocele) or rectum and back wall of the vagina (rectocele) into the vaginal space. The ovaries and bladder may also be positioned lower in the pelvis than usual.

In rare cases a mass may be noted on pelvic exam if a tumor is the cause of the prolapse.
