We found no RCTs or observational studies of sufficient quality examining the effects of pelvic floor muscle exercises on the symptoms of genital prolapse.
Although pelvic floor muscle exercises appear to be effective in reducing the symptoms of urinary stress incontinence (see benefits of pelvic floor muscle exercises in stress incontinence chapter), their usefulness in the treatment of genital prolapse is unproven.
Ensure you are getting the right nutrition:
Follow dietary recommendations outlined on the Foundation of Health page.
And for more information on the special dietary recommendation for prolapse, see the rest of the chapter on Naturalhealthpractice/Prolapse chapter which you can download.
The supplement programme below should be taken for at least three months in order to achieve best results
Your supplement plan
— A good multivitamin and mineral tablet
— Vitamin C with bioflavonoids (1000mg twice a day)
— Vitamin A (as beta-carotene at 25,000iu per day)
— Proanthocyanidins (50 mg per day)
— Manganese (5mg per day)
— Cranberry supplement (only needed for stress incontinence)
At the end of three months you should reassess your condition and adjust your supplement programme accordingly.
Dr Rosie King's Pelvic Floor Workout
Dr Rosie King is an Australian doctor with a difference! A sex therapist and sex educator, she has helped thousands of men and women achieve greater happiness and health through her counselling practice and her appearance on healthcare programmes on TV, radio and articles in health magazines.
In her course of work, Dr Rosie realised that many women suffer from bladder, bowel and sexual symptoms that are directly related to the weakness of the pelvic floor muscles. She also became aware that shyness and inhibitions prevent many affected women from seeking medical help and advice.
Women commonly present with the following problems:
One in three women experiences problems with bladder control
Sagging pelvic organs lead to prolapse of the bladder, bowel and uterus - such problems require medical attention and potentially a surgical repair
Many women experience reduced sexual sensitivity after childbirth
Many pelvic floor problems can be prevented by effective pelvic floor fitness programme that is designed to keep the pelvic floor muscles in the top condition.
In an audio programme - the Pelvic Floor Workout - Dr Rosie King tells women of all ages everything they need to know about keeping their pelvic floor in top shape.
