You may have difficult or painful sexual intercourse with a prolapsed uterus. The uterus is held in position in the pelvis by muscles, special ligaments, and other tissue,. The uterus drops into the vaginal canal or prolapses when these muscles and connective tissues weaken. If your uterine prolapse is mild, when the cervix drops into the lower part of the vagina, you may not find the symptoms such as pain during intercourse, low backache and frequent urination, bothersome. However, for cases of moderate uterine prolapse, treatment with surgery may be necessary.
