The uterus is held in position by pelvic muscles and ligaments. If these muscles or ligaments become weak, they are not unable to support the uterus which causes uterine prolapse. Uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus falls from its normal position down into the vagina. We assure you of the best uterine prolapse treatment in Borivali.
Uterine prolapse may be completely incomplete. An incomplete prolapse occurs when the uterus only partly falls into the vagina. Complete uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus falls completely such that some tissue protrudes outside of the vagina.

First degree: The cervix drops into the vagina.
Second degree: The cervix drops to the level just inside the opening of the vagina.
Third degree: The cervix is outside the vagina.
Fourth degree: The entire uterus is outside the vagina. This condition is also called procidentia
