Do Half Of Women's Vaginas Fall Out?
Learn How To Prevent It From Happening

There are articles out there that claim that the vagina falls out in 50% of women but this is not technically accurate as the vagina does not actually fall out of your body. So what does this really mean? The clinical term is called pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and it affects about 50 percent of women so it is clearly important to be educated about it.

While your vagina does not fall out it can move downward. Furthermore what POP really refers to one or more a woman's pelvic organs dropping down from the normal position which includes the uterus, vagina, intestines, bladder, and rectum which is outlined by The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists. Below I will outline some things you can do to help avoid this from happening.

Does It Really Happen In 50% Of Women?

Yes, as women age there is about half of us that have some degree of POP. Most of us have mild forms of it but it can get severe and with over 300,000 women receiving POP surgery in the United States each year it is something all women should take seriously. It primarily happens due to childbirth and is why pelvic floor exercise is so important.


What Are The Symptoms?

Because of the different organs that POP can affect there can be a wide range of symptoms but here are a few to watch out for-

  • Pressure or fullness in the pelvic area
  • Lower backache
  • Painful intercourse
  • Feeling like something is falling out of the vagina
  • Urinary leaking or a chronic urge to urinate
  • Constipation, and spotting or bleeding from the vagina

Having an annual checkup with an OBGYN will help assure that you are in good health and should you have symptoms like the ones above on a regular basis you should make an appointment to address what may be a more serious health issue.


How Do You Prevent POP?

  • Keep a healthy weight
  • Ensure proper nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Do Pelvic floor exercise (Kegel exercise)


How To Do Kegel Exercises

Simply squeezing your pelvic muscles can help. These can be felt by purposely stopping the flow of urine in midstream and starting again. The muscles that squeeze the urethra and anus are the ones involved. Simply tightening these muscles for 3 seconds and then relaxing them for 3 seconds about 10 - 15 times at least three times a day should help prevent prolapses. However, if a prolapse has already started Kegel exercises can help but surgery may be required so if you are concerned make sure to speak with your doctor about it.

If you want to get serious about them then using Kegel exercise products can give you even stronger results much like using weights do in the gym.
