Vaginal Prolapse is a condition in which the vagina is displaced or moves out of position. It is a chronic condition by which many people “live with” before seeking the care of a urogynecologist. Oftentimes, this is when the vaginal begins to fall out or down noticeably, affecting normal daily function. Vaginal prolapse is commonly seen in people who have had multiple vaginal births, have had a hysterectomy, have gone through menopause, are smokers, and carry excess weight.
There are many effective treatments to correct vaginal prolapse depending on the patient’s goals and concerns.
