Treatment. While treatment is possible, cure is not unfortunately. Some patients may get relief of mild prolapse symptoms with pelvic floor exercises (Kegels) and/or pelvic floor physical therapy, however, this generally does not cure the prolapse. A small flexible vaginal insert called a pessary can also be used to treat symptoms, but does not cure the prolapse. Surgery is currently the only cure.
Treatment possible. Pelvic prolapse is a treatable, not curable problem. Pelvic floor muscle exercises can be very effective if done on a consistent basis with many, many repetitions per day. Sometimes, specialized physical therapy provides very effective training in how to do these exercises properly. Sometimes a rubber supportive device called a pessary can be an effective treatment.
