Vault Prolapse

What is Vault Prolapse?

Vault prolapse, also known as vaginal vault prolapse or vaginal prolapse, happens when the upper portion of the vagina descends down into the vaginal canal or the outside of the vagina.

Vault prolapse can either occur alone or often happens alongside other pelvic organ prolapse, including bladder prolapse (cystocele), uterine prolapse (womb prolapse), small bowel prolapse (enterocele) or rectal prolapse (rectocele).

Vaginal Vault Prolapse

Vaginal vault prolapse often occurs after hysterectomy, when the uterus is no longer there to help keep the vaginal vault in its correct position. Symptoms of vault prolapse include a heavy, dragging feeling in the pelvic area, urinary incontinence and a 'bulge' in the vaginal canal.

First-line treatment for vault prolapse includes the use of a pessary along with pelvic floor exercise. Other treatment options include surgery if more conservative treatment options fail.

Kegel8 Ultra features a specially designed prolapse programme, designed to strengthen your pelvic floor in such a way that it can help to support the dropped organs and help treat prolapse.
