The study involved 53 women with recurrent genital prolapse. The average age of the women studied was 62,8±9,8 years, age of women of the control group was 57,2±6,3 years (p>0,05). Features of expression of estrogen and progesterone receptors levels, markers of cell proliferation and collagen in the biopsy of the vagina mucous membrane were estimated. In the vaginal mucosa of patients with recurrent prolapse expression of Ki-67 markers of proliferative activity was not established. According to the study general lowering of estrogen receptors by 76,2% in patients with recurrent genital prolapse was established, whereas in patients of the control group level of estrogen receptors in the unchanged epithelium and stroma was positive in 100% of cases. In patients with recurrent genital prolapse the decrease of expression of progesterone receptors by 83,4% was identified.
