What is colpocleisis?
Colpocleisis is a surgical procedure used as a treatment for uterine prolapse, especially in women who are not sexually active. It involves joining and closing the anterior and posterior walls of the vagina, preventing them from protruding outside. Since the vaginal canal is closed, it is not possible to have sexual intercourse with vaginal penetration.
Colpocleisiss is a quick and simple surgery compared to other vaginal reconstruction procedures to solve the prolapse. However, the woman will have to wear a catheter for 24-48 hours after the operation.
As a result of the operation and the application of stitches, the woman may have a whitish discharge for 4-6 weeks. If this discharge is prolonged over time, it is best to consult a doctor.
