Prolapsed Uterus (cont.)

Prolapsed Uterus Follow-up

Follow-up depends on how the condition was treated.

  • If the woman had surgery, she needs to follow-up according to her surgeon's advice.
  • If the woman has a pessary inserted in the vagina, it needs to be cleaned and checked by a health care professional for the correct position and fit at regular intervals unless she is instructed on how to remove it and clean it herself at home.
  • If the woman has been told to do hysterectomy, she should have a regular follow-up visit so that the doctor can check the progress of her muscle strength.
