Pelvic Pain: Maybe You Have Prolapse of the Uterus

Almost half of all women who have what is known as a "dropped uterus" report pelvic pain. Interestingly the amount of pain does not always correlate with the amount of pain, some women with very sever pelvic floor defects do not report as much pain as others. And women may have a variety of pain complaints when they have a dropped uterus: low back pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain. For most women a simple pelvic exam can diagnose a dropped bladder, a prolapsed uterus or a rectal prolapse problem. So no reason to put off that gyno visit, you need the diagnosis!
