Thank you for submitting your question on pelvic organ prolapse. I have a couple of tips here for you that I think will help you on your healing journey to conquering your symptoms.
Fear and isolation have kept more women on the Doctor Roadshow and considering prolapse surgery more than I can even begin to tell you.
Listen to the Messages of Your Body and Take Action
One of the most important things a woman can do when she suffers from a pelvic organ prolapse or bladder issues is to listen to the messages her body is telling her. For instance, if you do an activity that increases your symptoms (pressure), that is the moment to stop what you’re doing and to re-evaluate why it happened. You must figure out how you can modify your activity so your prolapse symptoms, your pressure, your leaking is not exasperated. Awareness, attention and taking appropriate action is everything when it comes to pelvic organ prolapse. So that’s step 1.
Self Care is the Way To Heal Yourself & to Take Back Control
The next thing that I will recommend is that every woman who suffers from a pelvic organ prolapse no matter how bad it is, will benefit from a self-care program that includes Kegels, reverse Kegels, core, bodywork, and behavior modification.
Women with pelvic organ prolapse must strengthen and balance their pelvic floor. Symptoms related to a pelvic organ prolapse can be diminished and get better by doing a consistent pelvic self-care program that balances, tones, and strengthens the pelvic floor muscles. Do not lose hope. Some women combine a pelvic self-care program with a pessary to heal their prolapse naturally without surgery.
My Go-To Exercise: The Resting Position-
Hopefully, you were able to attend my free masterclass, but if you didn’t, my go-to healing exercise for pelvic organ prolapse is the resting position. Please check with your caregiver before doing this exercise to make sure it’s right for you.
How To Do The Resting Position
To do the resting position place one to two pillows underneath the buttocks, so the pelvis is slightly elevated. In this position, your organs rest, and it will help you to feel less pressure. The resting place can be used anywhere from one minute to 20 minutes a day, and this is also a great position to do your Kegels and your reverse Kegels. Avoid the resting position during your menstrual cycle or if you’re pregnant.
