    Background: Uterovaginal prolapse (UVP) is a prolapse occur when there is protrusion of female organ or structure beyond its normal position. In UVP, there is descent of the uterus and/or vagina. This is a common gynecological condition. Materials and Methods: A retrospective descriptive study was conducted to assess the epidemiology of UVP and its risk factors associated with it. All cases of UVP admitted and treated in Aksum University College of Health Sciences and Comprehensive Specialized Hospital from October 3, 2016, to February 26, 2018, were included in the study. The collected data were analyzed using 16.0 version SPSS software. Chi-square test was used and also considered to be significant when P < 0.05. Results: During the study period, a total of 1676 individuals studied in gynecological admissions, 710 patients had genital prolapse. The prevalence of UVP was 42.3%. Factors found to be significantly associated (P < 0.05) with UVP include age, parity, occupation, marital status, and residence. Case notes were retrieved from the medical records department. Relevant data were obtained from the case notes, which included age, parity, occupation, marital status, residence, presenting symptoms, and stage of surgical management. Conclusion: UVP has very high prevalence associated with its risk factors such as age, parity, occupation, residency, and marital status in this study. Awareness creation on risk factors of UVP and the use of contraception to reduce parity is recommended. Higher policymakers should be advocated to minimize the rate of home deliveries and other risk factors.
