2 doctors weighed in:

I have uterine prolapse. Can too much coughing cause my uterus to fall so much that I can feel my cervix in my vagina?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

valsalva and cough may make the cervix more easily felt.
Certainly in the office as part of a prolapse evaluation I have a patient push down like for a bowel movement and have them cough to see how significant the prolapse is.
