In a normal position, the uterus is located between the bladder and the rectum in the pelvic area, while the distance from it to the pelvic walls is approximately the same. This distance is maintained both by the tone of the uterus itself and by adjacent organs and tissues, as well as by the elasticity of the pelvic floor. When the uterus is lowered, its anatomical position shifts.
The reasons for this disease are:
- heredity - the risk of uterine prolapse is higher in those whose close relatives also suffered from this disease, congenital weakness of the connective tissue increases the risk of prolapse of the uterus;
- pregnancy and childbirth, especially if the fetus is large enough, can also cause muscle weakening and contribute to the prolapse of the uterus immediately after childbirth;
- hormonal disorders;
- high loads associated with hard physical labor, heavy lifting, significant excess weight;
- age-related changes that lead to a decrease in the tone of the pelvic floor muscles and deformities.
The earlier the pathology will be detected, the more chances the patient has for a successful cure, and the lower the cost of treatment.
