Correspondingly, what are the symptoms of a prolapse?
- the feeling that you're sitting on a ball.
- vaginal bleeding.
- increased discharge.
- problems with sexual intercourse.
- the uterus or cervix protruding out of the vagina.
- a pulling or heavy feeling in the pelvis.
- constipation or difficulty passing stool.
Similarly, is a prolapse dangerous? If you have pelvic organ prolapse, you'll notice a bulge at the opening of the vagina. The bulge isn't dangerous, but it can be very uncomfortable. When the prolapse pulls the bladder downward, it bends the ureter (the tube through which urine exits the body). As a result, you might have trouble urinating fully.
In this manner, how do you fix a prolapse?
- Perform Kegel exercises to strengthen pelvic muscles and support the weakened fascia.
- Avoid constipation by eating high-fiber foods and drinking plenty of fluids.
- Avoid bearing down to move your bowels.
- Avoid heavy lifting.
- Control coughing.
- Lose weight if you're overweight or obese.
