Doctor :   The treatment of prolapse depends on the stage, if within 2nd stage it can be cured by exercises but third stage needs hysterectomy only.
User :   What are the dangers of not having it done
Doctor :   It can lead to rectal problems that is later causes problems in defecation.
User :   Thanks for the advice, doctor
Doctor :   Also the uterus may totally come out and also cause problems in walking and urinating.
Doctor :   Is there anything else i can help you with?
