Abstract

Uterine prolapse is defined as when the uterus slips down into the vagina from its normal position, and in severe cases, outside the vagina. It is one of the most distressful gynaecological problem commonly seen among the menopausal and post-delivery women mainly due to the weakening of pelvic floor muscles.

Pelvic floor muscles provide support or act as a “ floor” for the abdominal viscera including the rectum and constrictor or continence mechanism to the urethral, anal and vaginal orifices (in females). Weakening of these muscles not only lead to uterine prolapse, but may also lead to the prolapse of other pelvic organs as a complication that is Cystocoele (prolapse of Bladder) and Rectocoele (prolapse of Rectum).

Pelvic floor exercises also called as Kegel exercises mainly works on strengthening the muscles and the ligaments that support the female genital tract which become slack and atonic, and improves their general muscular tone. It also increases the thickness of the vaginal wall and lubrication after menopause. Here, I will discuss briefly about the uterine prolapse, and mainly the importance and process of doing pelvic floor exercises, since it has been mentioned that initial degrees of uterine descent can be managed by it. Need of this paper is to spread the awareness about the conservative treatment, rather than looking for surgery.
