Prolapse occurs when a woman’s pelvic floor muscles, tissues and ligaments weaken and stretch. This can result in organs dropping out of their normal position. A posterior (back) prolapse often causes the sensation of something ‘coming down.’ It may leave you with the feeling of not having emptied your bowel. An anterior prolapse can happen if you’ve had your uterus taken out (hysterectomy). If you still have symptoms, a repair known as a ‘colporrhaphy’ may be suggested. This is the surgical repair of the vaginal wall to treat vaginal prolapse. This can be an anterior (front) repair or posterior (back) repair. This procedure with our specialists at The Holly also includes an enterocele repair, which stops the small intestine from bulging into the vagina.
