Vaginal Vault Prolapse

Vaginal vault prolapse is a higher risk to those who have had hysterectomy than those who haven’t.


Due to the removal of the uterus there is reduced pelvic floor support and therefore the top portion of the vagina (Vault) descends (prolapses) into the the lower part of the vagina.

There are pessaries available to help the internal support. Pelvic floor exercises are always recommended along with physiotherapy treatment.
