Pelvic organ prolapse is a common morbidity among Bangladeshi women. Both patient and surgeon prefer vaginal hysterectomy for the treatment of this condition and occasionally they choose Fothergill's operation. Uterine suspension is suitable for the young women to preserve the uterus. This observational study was carried out in three teaching hospitals and two other non government hospitals for the period of 12 years among 280 patients with 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree uterine prolapse. Follow up done at 6th week , 6th month, 1st year, 5th year, 10th year and 12th year for recurrence of prolapse, dragging pain and dyspareunia. Among 280 patients >60% patients were of 26-30 years age group. In last follow up at 12th year 2(0.71%) women complained feeling of some descend of uterus, 1(0.36%) complained dragging pain in abdomen and I (0.36%) complained dyspareunia. All patients expressed satisfaction which indicates psychological well being. Uterine sling is an effective procedure to save uterus in young women to improve their quality of life.
