If you have uterine vaginal prolapse and you have never had children you can definitely have children in the future if you were capable and fertile in the first place. One of the problems with inexperienced surgeons is they do not understand if your uterus has fallen it does NOT need to be removed. It can be supported with 98% support for at least 5 years ( it has not been studied longer) . You can also have a vaginoplasty or rejuvenation performed to tighten your vagina if you so desire.
If you only have vaginal prolapse this too can be fixed with or without vaginal rejuvenation and this also does NOT affect future childbearing.
When choosing a surgeon please choose wisely what you are asking about is not just cosmetic surgery but also vaginal reconstructive surgery. Choose a surgeon who is well versed in both. This is one of the most important investments in your life.

You can have children if you have prolapse
If the degree of prolapse is severe and the cervix is exposed, you should have corrective surgery before attempting pregnancy. If not, the choice to repair is more individualized. There are several surgical options and they are similar to those done in women without a uterus. This is a type of pelvic reconstructive surgery performed by some gynecologists and most urogynecologists. I do these procedures primarily with laparoscopy as an outpatient procedure in the hospital OR.
