Al Jazeera America Examines Uterine Prolapse In Nepal
Al Jazeera America: Uterine prolapse: The hidden agony of Nepalese women

The ligaments and muscles in [the] pelvic floor are too weak to hold the uterus, which slips into the vagina. The condition is often caused by overwork, not enough recovery time between pregnancies or pregnancy at a young age…” (Das, 6/9).
