A prolapsed uterus results from the loss of strength and elasticity of pelvic ligaments, connective tissues, and muscles. Childbirth, difficult labors, and the loss of estrogen can result in uterine prolapse. The severity levels of uterine prolapse vary.
The following briefly describes each stage (severity) of uterine prolapse:
Stage 1: Slight droop of cervix into the vagina.
Stage 2: Cervical drop which stops inside the opening of vagina
Stage 3: Cervical drop protrudes outside of the vagina
Stage 4: The entire uterus has exited the vagina due to complete weakening of all supportive ligaments, connective tissues, and muscles.
Uterine prolapse can be complicated with other organ prolapses such as bladder, small intestine, rectum, urethra prolapse, or vaginal prolapse.
