Vaginal Prolapse tests and assessments

What is vaginal prolapse?

Prolapse means "to fall out of place". A vaginal prolapse is a protrusion or sagging of the bladder, uterus or bowel into the vagina.

What causes a prolapse of the vagina?

It may occur when the supports become stretched or damaged:

  • during childbirth
  • due to heavy lifting
  • being overweight.

What are common symptoms of vaginal prolapse?

Symptoms may include:

  • pelvic discomfort
  • back ache
  • urinary and bowel problems.

What treatment is recommended for vaginal prolapse?

Treatment for prolapse should be done by a qualified urogynaecologist. It may either be surgical or conservative (non surgical).

Before any surgery is done, you should have a thorough investigation - including a Urodynamic Study - to ensure there are no other underlying conditions.

Sydney Urodynamic Centres are highly qualified urodynamics specialists. We can conduct tests for vaginal prolapse and other urinary problems for you, or through your doctor.
