If you have uterine prolapse and it doesn’t bother you, treatment may not be needed. You might choose to wait and see what happens. But when prolapse symptoms bother you, your provider may suggest self-care measures. Self-care measures might provide relief from symptoms or help prevent the prolapse from getting worse. Self-care measures include performing exercises to strengthen pelvic muscles. These are called Kegel exercises. You might also benefit from losing weight and treating constipation. Another option is a vaginal pessary is a silicone device inserted into the vagina. It helps prop up bulging tissues. A pessary must be removed regularly for cleaning. Surgery may be needed to repair uterine prolapse. Minimally invasive surgery, called laparoscopic surgery, or vaginal surgery might be an option.
