How is vaginal prolapse diagnosed?

A vaginal prolapse is often diagnosed in your healthcare provider’s office during an appointment. Your provider will do a physical exam, talk to you about any symptoms of fullness in your pelvic area or urinary incontinence (leakage). You may also be asked about your family history and about any previous pregnancies.

In some cases, you may not have any symptoms and the prolapse could be found during a routine exam with your healthcare provider.
