Unclear: If you mean uterine or rectal prolapse. Nonetheless, both are best addressed when properly diagnosed by a physician, as sometimes surgery is necessary. In the meanwhile focus on "anti"constipation measures like hydration and high fiber intake. If uterine prolapse is in play consider looking up "Kegel" exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. And as best as possible, avoid straining
