Uterine Prolapse / Urinary Incontinence

Prolapse of the womb (uterus) is a common condition in women with up to half of women who have had children being affected. The womb and vaginal walls are held in place by muscle, tissues and ligaments.

Prolapse occurs for many reasons including childbearing when these are weakened.

Possible causes of a Prolapse:

  • Getting older
  • Previously having a hysterectomy
  • The menopause
  • Being overweight
  • Childbirth

Women may complain of:
  • A dragging sensation or a feeling of fullness
  • Difficulty in having sex
  • Back pain
  • The womb or vaginal wall coming through the vulva.

Prolapse may be associated with incontinence of urine. Mr Sanusi is able to offer investigation and treatment for prolapse and incontinence surgery.
