Are uterine prolapse and vaginal prolapse the same thing?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 01/28/2021

No. Uterine prolapse and vaginal prolapse are two different types of prolapse, although they are sometimes used synonymously.

Uterine prolapse is characterized by the uterus dropping into the vagina. In contrast, vaginal prolapse usually occurs in women who do not have a uterus and what happens is that the vagina is turned inside out.
