Hello

Thanks for using justanswer.

 

Yes pregnancy can occour with a prolapse uterous. But continuity of pregnancy

 

depend on degree of prolapse. If there is first and second degree prolapse then usually

 

pregnancy reach term but in case of third degree prolapse pregnancy will still occour

 

but there will be increase risk of abortion.

so there would be no chance of full term pregnany ? I have just been recomended to a geyny and haven't seen her yet but because It has just happened could it be a first degree?

Hello,

I will continue to answer this question - for the most part a POP - Pelvic Organ Prolapse problem does not affect you getting pregnant - and most patients that I know of who have had TERM pregnancies before and NOW have POP - they go on to have a normal pregnancy, and there is no difference in the miscarriage rate when comparing the same variables - so if you have had a term pregnancy, your chances of a miscarriage are no different. (I'm an ob/gyn in the US).
