If you’ve been diagnosed with a uterine prolapse, it’s likely you’re suffering from a great deal of pain and discomfort. This debilitating condition is experienced by thousands of women in the UK, yet many suffer in silence due to the intimate and sensitive nature of the illness. At The Pelvic Clinic, we aim to offer advice, support and above all else, medical care that can allow you to live a normal, pain-free life once again. Read on to learn how an operation for a prolapsed womb could help you.
Prolapse occurs when the tissue supporting the pelvic organs becomes weak and can no longer bear the weight of the organs. The most common cause of this is pregnancy and childbirth, when many of the muscles and ligaments supporting the pelvic organs are damaged and weakened. Another key factor is age; after the menopause, the body’s oestrogen levels diminish and the production of collagen, which is responsible for healthy, stretchy and strong muscles and ligaments, declines. Many women who have had children may not notice the symptoms of prolapse until later life when their muscles begin to weaken and symptoms increase.
Prolapse repair operation
Repairing a prolapse can be done in a number of different ways but one of the most successful methods is a procedure called sacrohysteropexy. This type of uterine prolapse operation involves repositioning the uterus and securing it via a flexible mesh that acts like a sling to permanently hold the uterus in place.
Sacrohysteropexy is suitable for women of all ages, is totally permanent, and does not require any further corrective procedures in future. Women can go on to have children after having this type of prolapsed womb operation without any problems.
