What You Can Do About Pelvic Organ Prolapse

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

I'm Amanda Olson, and I'm a physical therapist certified in pelvic floor rehabilitation.

If you are a woman who’s experiencing pelvic organ prolapse, you are not alone. We see this in the clinic all the time, and it is fixable, especially if it's a mild case.

Essentially, the way that we fix this is by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. And to do that, we do Kegels, which are contractions of the pelvic floor muscles.

One way to do that more quickly, more efficiently, is to use resistance.

I like the Intimate Rose vaginal weight Kegel system. These are really easy to use. As the purple color intensifies on the weight, the weight gets heavier.

So you can start where you are and progressively get stronger.

They are coated in BPA-free silicone, and they go in just like a tampon would.

The nice thing is if you're really busy, you can put this in and use it while you're in the shower, getting ready in the morning, or doing light chores.

After 15 minutes, you're done, whereas some pelvic floor strengthening programs can include excessive amounts of Kegels and can take a while.

So the nice thing is that pelvic organ prolapse is fixable; you don't have to continue to have that pressure in your pelvis.

Or maybe you've stopped having sex, because it's uncomfortable.

Strengthening the pelvic floor will help, and this is one way to do it very quickly.

If you are experiencing more severe pelvic organ prolapse, we still want to be able to help you; we can help connect you with a qualified physical therapist in your area.
