I am having trouble with prolapse - what are the options for remedy

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No - I have had it for many years - but no problems - in the last few days the organ has started to protrude - I had a gynecologist but he retired while I was in Europe and I haven't had a chance to get someone else

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you are having of trouble with prolapse is called uterine prolapse. It is falling or sliding of the uterus from its normal position in the pelvic cavity into the vaginal canal.It occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken, providing inadequate support for the uterus. This leads to descend of uterus into the vaginal canal.

Following is recommended for you now:

  • A pessary (a plastic ring) may be placed within the vagina to support the pelvic organs.
  • Performing pelvic floor exercises on a daily basis to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor is recommended.

So I advise you to consult your doctor/gynecologist for these treatments accordingly.

Thank you.
Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
