Aneema Begum, 61, had the last of her three children 38 years ago. The first two didn’t survive more than a year, and it is after the birth of her last, and only surviving son, that Aneema was left with a prolapsed uterus — a condition wherein muscle weakness causes the uterus to sag or entirely come out of the body. In Roshanpura village of the Raisen district where she lives, there are few medical professionals who can diagnose the condition, let alone operate upon it. “For nearly 40 years it has protruding out of my body. I told my husband and son to take me to the doctor several times,” says Aneema. “The one time they took me to Bhopal two years ago, the doctor wasn’t available.”
