What non-surgical options are there for prolapsed uterus, and is there a risk leaving it untreated? Severe prolapse
There is minimal to no risk leaving uterine prolapse untreated. Your treatment decisions should largely be based upon your degree of symptoms or bother. The main risk with leaving it untreated is that it could worsen over time. This could also lead to symptoms related to bladder or bowel function such as urinary incontinence or difficulty emptying your bladder or bowel. Typically, patients chose to treat it surgically when it is bothersome enough to warrant surgical intervention and risk.
There are several non-surgical options. The main one is a pessary which is a device worn in the vagina to support the uterus. You can have this fitted by a gynecologist. Properly fitted and placed you will not even know that it is there but your symptoms of pelvic pressure caused by the prolapse should be resolved. Depending upon the size of the prolapse, not every woman can successfully use a pessary.
If your prolapse is small and symptoms are minor then the main non-surgical treatment is strengthening your muscles by doing kegels and avoiding heavy lifting and straining such as constipation. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) and others: Clomid (clomiphene) does not decrease chance of conception at any age: it is an ovulation induction drug, so improves — somewhat — chance of conceiving at any age.
