Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Having a prolapse bladder which has been examined by your doctor and is being managed by kegel exercises is not a contraindication to take a commercial flight. The pressure of the flight will not push it out. In fact in the cabin there is a reduction in barometric pressure.

Take care.
