Hello

 

Are you asking this question for someone else?

 

First let me give you some information about prolapsed uterus and what that means as well as possible treatment for it.

 

And here is a web site devoted to discussing uterine prolapse and during pregnancy.  It seems it is possible to have more pregnancies but the doctor may have to treat the prolapse.

 

My best suggestion is to consult with a doctor about what the risks are and what can be done prior to conception to decrease any possible health risks.

 

Hope this helps.  Thank you for your question.

Thanks Merely Me.

Yes, I am asking this question on behalf of my sister-in-law who lives does not have Internet access.  She's been advised to do pelvic floor exercises and if this does not help, surgery is on the table.  She's not happy with the surgery but if it will help her for the next baby then it is worth it.

 

Thanks a lot for your answer.
