Vaginal prolapse is characterized by a portion of the vaginal canal protruding from the opening of the vagina.

Types of vaginal prolapse

- cystocoele (bladder into vagina)
- enterocoele (small intestine into vagina)
- rectocoele (rectum into vagina)
- urethrocoele (urethra into vagina)
- uterine prolapse (uterus into vagina)

- With a pessary, to provide support to the weakened vaginal walls
- With surgery
