Absolutely: Rectal prolapse is a mechanical problem in which the rectum turns out at the anus. There is no medical reason one can not get pregnant. Having said that, i would caution about not fixing it before you get pregnant only in that it may get worse with the weight of the baby and the pushing with delivery.
