A 53-year-old female asked:

Why would you have redundant vaginal tissue (told not prolapse) if you have never had children, have had hysterectomy and are postmenopausal?

Medical Jargon: Doctors have to describe their observations when they document their exam findings. Redundant vaginal tissue is not abnormal. Its just a description of the way the vaginal folds in on itself in a normal women. Its not just related to childbearing. Vaginal tissue gets more redundant with age and with obesity. Best wishes.
