If the uterus doesn't have a fixed position, how does uterine prolapse happen, why does it cause problems and is it really posible to correct that by placing very large sea sponges in the vagina?

Uterine prolapse (when the uterus drops down into the vagina) can happen if the muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken to the point that they can no longer support the uterus in its position. It is most common in people who are postmenopausal who have given birth vaginally one or more times.

I'm not really sure what you mean by your second question about sea sponges. Could you clarify?
