There are several types of grading systems that Doctors use to describe the severity of prolapse, 1 (first-degree) being the mildest and 4 (fourth-degree) being the most severe.

The following stages of vaginal prolapse to look out for:

The 4 Stages of Vaginal Prolapse

Stage 1 (or first-degree) prolapse:

  • A woman may not even know she has a vaginal prolapse, quite often this is discovered during a routine pelvic floor exam.

Stage 2 (or second-degree) prolapse:

  • There will be symptoms such as heaviness, dragging feeling or painful intercourse.

Stage 3 (or third-degree) prolapse also known as procidentia:

  • Physical characteristics will be felt as well as seen. However, sometimes a lump will be felt inside the vagina.

Stage 4 (or forth-degree) prolapse:

  • This stage will be visible, extremely uncomfortable and protruding out of the vagina.

The following stages of uterine (or womb) prolapse to look out for:

The 4 Stages of Uterine Prolpase

Stage 1/First-degree prolapse:

  • The uterus droops into the upper portion of the vagina.

Stage 2/Second-degree prolapse:

  • The uterus falls into the lower part of the vagina.

Stage/Third-degree prolapse:

  • The cervix, which is located at the bottom of the uterus, sags to the vaginal opening and may protrude outside the body.

  • This condition is also called procidentia, or complete prolapse.

Stage4/Fourth-degree prolapse:

  • The entire uterus protrudes entirely outside the vagina.
