Hi Lily. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Uterine prolapse is a condition of uterine descent caused by weakness of the pelvic floor muscles and stretching of the supporting tissue. Depending on the severity and condition of the prolapse, there may be a decrease in the cervix into the vagina or even partial or total discharge from the vagina. The causes of uterine prolapse are:
Weak pelvic floor muscles
Weakness of the uterine support / support tissue, such as muscles or ligaments
Pull on the fetus at incomplete opening
Treatment of uterine prolapse can be done through:
Non-surgical medications such as pelvic floor exercises or insertion of a pessary (support). This procedure is performed under certain conditions, such as if the patient's general condition is bad, so that surgery is not possible or the patient himself refuses to be operated on, or uterine prolapse in a state of pregnancy and uterine prolapse during the puerperium.
Surgery is performed in conditions of severe uterine prolapse or when all attempts have failed and failed
A pessary ring is a medical device that is inserted and used in the vagina. The purpose of placing a pessary is to support the vaginal wall and help correct the displacement of the uterus. In general, several types of pessary rings can be installed and removed by yourself, however, regular control to the doctor is still necessary. The doctor will provide a pessary ring according to the size needed.
The pessary ring that passes out by itself during a bowel movement can be caused by the following conditions:
Incorrect size and type of pessary. A pessary that is the right size and fits well should keep you comfortable
Incorrect position of the pessary ring. The pessary that is positioned in the correct position should be barely felt. With the right size and insertion position, it is unlikely that the pessary will come out even if you apply pressure such as during a bowel movement.
If you have difficulty inserting or removing the pessary ring, you should consult the doctor who is handling your case so that further evaluation and direction can be carried out. To determine whether your uterine prolapse is a prolapse with a fairly severe degree of severity, you must do a direct examination or with the help of other supporting tools, so the doctor who examines and treats you should understand more. May be useful. Best regards, Dr. Shirly
