Causes And Treats A Descending Uterus?
Good afternoon doctor. I’d like to ask. I am a married woman, I am 30 years old and have not had any children. I was pregnant and had BO so I had to curettage twice.rnThis morning I tried Pap Smear, said the midwife who examined me, my cervix dropped. So you can’t lift heavy.rnWhat I want to askrn1) Is there a connection between my cervical retraction and my curettage?rn2) Does my cervical slackening make it difficult for me to get pregnant?rn3) Is it possible to do so? can the cervix be massaged back to its proper position?rn4) I don’t understand the severity of my cervix, doctor, please advise, what should I do?rnrnMy husband and I really want to have children DoctorrnThanks in advance for the answer doctor.
Thanks for the question. A descending uterus is called uterine prolapse in medical parlance. This is caused by weakening of the pelvic floor ligaments and muscles so that they are unable to support the uterus to keep it in its normal position. This condition generally occurs as a result of:
pregnancy and childbirth that cause pressure on the pelvic floor muscles
having excess weight, lifting heavy activities, often straining when defecating, and experiencing complaints of a long cough
This condition is not related to the curettage procedure that you have undergone.
Uterine prolapse can cause symptoms: a sensation of fullness in the pelvis or vagina, discomfort/pulling in the pelvic area when coughing or straining, the appearance of a lump coming out of the vagina, difficulty urinating or unable to control urine, and difficulty defecating.
In order for a pregnancy to go well, of course, it must be supported by the health of the reproductive organs starting from the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and vagina. Disturbances in the shape of these structures can make it difficult to conceive. The best step you can take right now is to consult with an obstetrician and gynecologist so that the doctor can examine you to determine the cause. The doctor will suggest further treatment depending on the cause and depending on the severity of the condition. If there is evidence of uterine prolapse, massage of the abdominal area can not help improve this condition.
Please try to do the following suggestions:
maintain ideal body weight
do Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles
Hope this information is useful.
