Other causes: For uterine or vaginal prolapse include frequent heavy lifting, frequent straining with bowel movement from constipation , frequent coughing as with asthma or getting weak tissue from parents. I have had patient with prolapse who never were pregnant. Of course having a vaginal birth especially pushing a long time is a risk factor.
