Hi drnunuwin123

Thanks for your post!

A uterine prolapse is where the uterus (womb) slips out of place and into the vaginal canal due to weakening of the muscles and ligaments of the lower abdomen (called the “pelvic floor”), which normally support the uterus and other organs in the pelvis. The severity of uterine prolapse is defined as:

First degree (mild)—the cervix (the lower opening of the uterus into the vagina) protrudes into the lower third of the vagina
Second degree (moderate)—the cervix protrudes past the vaginal opening
Third degree (severe)—the entire uterus protrudes past the vaginal opening

Do you know what kind of prolapse you have, drnunuwin123? A successful pregnancy and birth may depend in this.

drnunuwin123, women who have a prolapsed uterus can and do get pregnant and give birth successful. Being near 40 and having this condition will have you in a pretty high risk category but it can still be possible.

I encourage you to have an exam and a talk with an experienced OB/GYN before you make this decision.

Good luck and I wish you the very best.
