Vault prolapse is a type of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in which the top of the vagina (known as the “vaginal vault”) droops down into the vaginal canal. It occurs when the muscles and ligaments that support the top of the vagina weaken.

Vault Prolapse Symptoms

The symptoms of vault prolapse can vary depending on the severity of the prolapse. Mild vault prolapses may not cause any symptoms, while more severe vault prolapses can cause the following symptoms:

  • A feeling of fullness or pressure in the vagina
  • A bulge in the vagina
  • Pain or discomfort during sex
  • Urinary incontinence, especially when coughing, sneezing, or laughing.
  • Difficulty emptying the bowels completely.
  • Constipation
  • Leakage of stool or gas

Vault Prolapse Causes

The main causes of vault prolapse are:

  • Age: The risk of developing a vault prolapse increases with age. This is because the muscles and ligaments that support the top of the vagina weaken as we get older.
  • Childbirth: Repeated childbirth can put stress on the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments, increasing the risk of a vault prolapse.
  • Hysterectomy: A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. The uterus helps to support the top of the vagina, so removing it can increase the risk of a vault prolapse.
  • Obesity: Excess weight puts pressure on the pelvic floor muscles, which can contribute to a vault prolapse.
  • Genetics: Some women are more likely to develop a vault prolapse due to their genes.
  • Other medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as chronic coughing or constipation, can increase the risk of a vault prolapse.

Vault Prolapse Treatment

The treatment for vault prolapses depends on the severity of the prolapse and the symptoms. Mild vault prolapses may not require any treatment, but more severe vault prolapses may require one or more of the following treatments:

Lifestyle changes: These changes can help to reduce the pressure on the pelvic floor muscles and prevent the prolapse from getting worse. They include:

  • Losing weight if you are overweight or obese.
  • Avoiding heavy lifting and straining.
  • Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Avoiding constipation.

Pessary: A pessary is a device that is inserted into the vagina to support the top of the vagina. Pessaries can be used to treat mild to moderate vault prolapses.

Surgery: Surgery is usually only recommended for severe vault prolapses that do not respond to other treatments. There are several different types of surgery for vault prolapse repair, and the best type of surgery for you will depend on the severity of your prolapse and your individual circumstances.

Vault Prolapse Complications

Complications of vault prolapse are rare, but they can include:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pain or discomfort during sex
  • Inability to empty the bowels completely.
  • Recurrent prolapse.

Vault Prolapse Prevention

There are no surefire ways to prevent vault prolapse, but there are some things you can do to reduce your risk:

  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Do Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
  • Avoid heavy lifting and straining.
  • Have regular checkups with your doctor so that any problems can be caught early.

If you are experiencing symptoms of vault prolapse, it is important to see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. With the right treatment, most women with vault prolapses can live normal, active lives.
