The womb may come down and remain in the
vagina (incomplete falling). When the womb escapes at the vulva it is

called a complete falling (prolapse or procidentia).

For the Incomplete Kind. Replace the womb and wear a support for months.

For the Complete Falling. Replace the womb. The patient should remain in

bed with daily, hot, prolonged vaginal injections of water for a few

weeks. The injection d
ily of white oak bark tea, of the strength of one

ounce of the bark to a pint of hot water, is often of great benefit.

If these measures fail to cure, an operation may be necessary.
