FAQ
 
Genital Prolapse Wear the V-Brace™ for relief from the symptoms of Genital Prolapse (Uterine Prolapse, Cystocele, Rectocele and Entrocele).

The V-Brace™ provides the same support as placing your hand on the vaginal area and applying pressure upwards. The V-Brace™ provides this support more effectively and consistently without slipping or chafing.
 
What is Genital Prolapse?
 
Genital prolapse is a general term which includes several conditions, which may occur separately or in combination. These include uterine prolapse (dropped womb), vaginal prolapse, cystocele (dropped bladder), rectocele (dropped rectum), and enterocele (herniation of the small intestine into the space between the rectum and vagina).
 
A prolapsed uterus occurs when the uterus drops from its normal position. The cervix may also descend into the vaginal opening. This condition occurs in approximately 35% of women.

Causes of a prolapsed uterus
 
A prolapsed uterus may occur for several reasons, including:
  • Childbirth, especially with a large baby, can place pressure on the birth canal and damage the vaginal walls
  • Genetic
  • Constipation and obesity can place pressure on internal organs and cause a uterine prolapse
  • Fibroid tumors can be a contributing factor
  • Menopause, with its reduced estrogen levels, can cause the ligaments holding the uterus in place to lose some of their elasticity and strength
Symptoms of a prolapsed uterus
 
Symptoms of a prolapsed uterus include a feeling of bulging, pelvic heaviness or fullness and/or low back pain. The symptoms usually get worse with activity and get better with bed rest. While standing, women with a prolapse may feel like something is falling out.
Other symptoms include:
  • Heaviness or pain in the vagina
  • Incontinence or difficulty urinating
  • Bladder infections
  • Anal pain
  • Excessive vaginal discharge
Women affected by a Genital Prolapse
 
Genital prolapse is a condition that commonly affects older post-menopausal women. It also occurs in women during their childbearing years.
 
What to do if you are experiencing symptoms
 
Mild cases of uterine prolapse are not usually treated with surgery.
 
Kegel Exercises, which are special exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, are helpful for mild prolapse, urinary stress incontinence, sexual function and pelvic discomfort.
 
A pessary can be used to alleviate more severe symptoms. A pessary is a special prosthesis in different shapes and sizes, that is placed into the vagina by your physician, and can effectively support a prolapse. The pessary must be fitted according to the type and degree of a prolapse. A specialized pessary can also effectively relieve urinary incontinence.
 
Surgery is used to repair and reconstruct the weakened pelvic floor and restore normal function. It is indicated only when the prolapse is causing significant symptoms and when conservative non-surgical measures have failed.
 
Our new V-Brace™ support garment will help alleviate the symptoms of Genital Prolapse. The V-Brace™ lifts and supports the vaginal area. This reduces the symptoms of prolapsed uterus including back pain, fullness and the "falling out" feeling.
 
If you are experiencing symptoms, you should talk to your Gynecologist or Uro-Gynecologist. He or she will perform a pelvic exam to assess the condition. A variety of treatments are available, depending on the severity of the prolapse, your age, and desire to have children.
