How do you fix a prolapsed bladder?
A prolapsed bladder or uterus may need to be corrected with surgery, which can be done through the vagina, an incision in the abdomen, or by laparoscopy. The procedure that is chosen depends on the woman’s age, severity of the symptoms, medical history, desire for future fertility and desire to be able to have sex.
Can you fix a prolapse with pelvic floor exercises?
The first treatment your doctor might recommend is pelvic floor physical therapy, which may include Kegel exercises. You squeeze and release the muscles you use to hold in gas, which strengthens the muscles that help to support the pelvic organs. Physical therapy with Kegels may be enough to relieve prolapse symptoms.
