Why are Kegel Exercises Recommended by Any Uterine Prolapse Specialist?

For many females who only have mild prolapse and very few symptoms, doctors recommend that self-care approaches are all that is required. Most prominently, pelvic floor exercises are suggested to improve symptoms and avert the condition from worsening. If weight is a factor, losing weight is intensely counseled. Womenfolk should also avoid heavy lifting which can typically make the condition worse and avoid or rapidly treat constipation.


Mild uterine prolapse can be treated with Kegel exercises, weight management and evasion of heavy lifting. How to do an appropriate Kegel is vital for the success of the treatment. These workouts can be done anywhere and at any time and can help reinforce the muscles of the pelvic floor. Your health care provider or physical counselor can teach you on how to implement an apt Kegel while in the office, at which time appropriate technique can be evaluated. At times, a method called biofeedback might be applied. During biofeedback treatments, a device will monitor suitable muscle contraction, the strength of the pelvic floor and timing of Kegels. This reinforces appropriate method of the exercises.

To perform a proper Kegel

  • Tauten the pelvic floor muscles, as if you are trying to stop urinating and hold for 5 seconds
  • Take a 5-second break and repeat three sets, 10 times per day.
  • The eventual goal is to hold the contraction for 10 seconds every time the exercise is implemented.

Talk to your doctor or a uterine prolapse specialist if you have any queries or for the assessment and treatment of symptoms of uterine prolapse. They can advise you on a treatment choice that is superlative for you.
