Vaginal Prolapse (cont.)

Vaginal Prolapse Treatment

Patient Comments

Most vaginal prolapses gradually worsen and can only be fully corrected with surgery. However, the type of treatment that is appropriate to treat a vaginal prolapse depends on factors such as the cause and severity of the prolapse, whether the woman is sexually active, and the woman's treatment preference.

  • Nonsurgical options may be most appropriate for women who are not sexually active, cannot undergo surgery because of medical reasons, or experience few or no symptoms associated with the condition.
  • Surgrical repair is the treatment option that most sexually active women who develop a vaginal prolapse choose because the procedure is usually effective.
