Your treatment will depend on the severity of your symptoms. If your prolapse does not bother you, your health care provider might recommend treating your prolapse without surgery. If symptoms get worse and significantly affect your quality of life, surgery might be needed. Physical therapy might be recommended, with pelvic floor exercises using biofeedback to strengthen specific muscles of the pelvic floor.
Prolapse is the result of weakened pelvic floor tissues that create a bulge, like a hernia. Anything you do to stop weakening these tissues is protective against your bulge getting worse or returning after a surgical repair, such as quitting smoking, treating conditions that might put strain on the pelvic floor, such as a chronic cough or constipation, losing weight, and strengthening your core and your pelvic floor.
