In brief: Prolapse

When there is a weakening or tear in the support structures (ligaments) of the pelvis, the pelvic contents may fall lower in the pelvis or even begin to protrude through the vagina.
This is known as prolapse. It can be very minor or very severe (the entire uterus and bladder protrude through the vaginal opening).
