Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No and Yes: No vaginal dryness is not a primary symptom of uterine prolapse as the descent of the uterus most be noted and documented by a M by exam. Yes, second and especially third degree prolapse often is associated as a secondary factor with vaginal dryness as the uterus is almost at the vaginal opening or outside it and air does get into the vagina during physical or strenuous activity.
