Enterocele

Women often find that their pelvic floor is weakened through childbirth and the aging process. The pelvic floor is a set of ligaments and muscles that keep the organs located in the pelvic cavity in place; these organs include the small intestine, colon, uterus, and bladder. When the pelvic floor is weakened, an organ may drop, which is called a prolapse. An enterocele is one kind of prolapse. 

An enterocele happens when the tissues and muscles supporting the small bowel weaken or stretch, which causes the bowel to descend and bulge through the vaginal wall. This develops into a hernia in the vagina. 

A moderate or mild enterocele can be improved through special exercises, which can be relieved through exercises that increase the strength of the muscles in the pelvic floor. There are other treatments available that do not require surgery, but surgery is an option in cases of a severe enterecole.
