Know more about Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Prolapse is the protrusion of pelvic organs into or out of the vaginal canal. The external os is at the level of the ischial spine, while the internal os is at the pubic symphysis’s upper border, if there is any descent of the uterus or any organ from this level it can be termed as pelvic organ prolapse.

It is a common problem with a prevalence of 41-50% among women of age over 40.

The physical grouping depicts which organ is principally associated with the drop:

  • URETHROCELE: The urethra and anterior vaginal wall descend into the vaginal opening.
  • CYSTOCELE: the descent of the bladder and anterior vaginal wall
  • CYSTOURETHROCELE: bladder and urethra prolapse in addition to the anterior vaginal wall
  • UTEROVAGINAL PROLAPSE: the comedown of the uterus, the cervix, and the vaginal vault (the uppermost part of the vagina)
  • ENTEROCELE: prolapse of the uppermost portion of the posterior vagina with accumulated small intestine loops inside.
  • RECTOCELE: plunge of the lower back mass of the vagina, with the rectum which swells into it.

Signs and Symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Some of the ways you can know whether to consult a doctor for treatment or further investigation should be done:

  • discomfort or numbness during sex
  • Problems during passing urine, such as feeling like your bladder is not emptying fully, and needing to go to the toilet more frequently.
  • leaking a small amount of pee when you cough, sneeze, or exercise (stress incontinence)
  • Difficulty in bowel control
  • Sometimes pelvic organ prolapse has no symptoms and is discovered during an internal examination that is carried out for another reason, such as cervical screening. In this case, the pelvic organ prolapse is found during the examination.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Rectocele

Pelvic organ prolapse is categorized based on the degrees of prolapse and the anatomical part involved. And based on these degrees Ayurveda correlates it to Prasamsini, phalini, guda bhramsha, and Maha yoni. Clinical relationship of Mahayoni:

According to Acharya Charaka, Mahayoni refers to a condition characterized by a Yoni muscular protuberance and joint and groin pain. Yoni’s Vishtambhana is the result of Vayu’s vitiation caused by being in an uneven position and doing the coital act. In this condition dry, foamy a ridiculous discharge from Yoni occurs.

Guda bhramsha occurs due to vega dharana of mala and Vayu vitiation.

Acharya Susruta expresses that in this Yoni is exorbitantly expanded and the symptoms of all three doshas dryness and pricking pain from Vata, heat and burning sensation from Pitta, and moistness and itching from Kaph appear.

All highlights of Vivrata or Maha Yoni like third fourth-degree uterine prolapse or procidentia so uterovaginal prolapse can be correlated, and II-uterine prolapse with or without vaginal wall descent is Prasramsini Yoni Vyapad or phalini.


It is caused due to constant suppression of natural urges especially the retention of feces causes this condition and the loosening of muscles in the pelvic region. Some of the measures done in Ayurveda are:

  • Conditions like constipation and diarrhea should be managed by giving appropriate medicines.
  • Abhyanga: that is an oil massage in the pelvic region.
  • Avagaham: tub bathing with panchavalkala drugs.
  • Herbal drugs like changeri, Ashoka, chandana, lodhra, haritaki, etc should be given.
  • Decoction and Ghrita processed with medicines are given.
