In brief: Pessary, exercise

Options for women with cystocele are limited.
Cystocele or dropped bladder is a form of pelvic organ prolapse (pop). Think of this as a type of hernia involving weakness of supportive layers surrounding the vagina. Options are: live with it, wear a vaginal pessary to "prop it back it" to provide comfort, perform pelvic muscle exercise (pme) or undergo surgical correction.

In brief: Short list

The treatment for pelvic prolapse are pelvic floor exercise, pessary management or surgery.
The treatment is largely driven by patient symptoms and quality of life issues.

In brief: Depends

I assume you hace a cystocele.
...Where the bladder "prolapses" into the vagina. Do you have urinary leaking as well? There are many surgical options from laparoscopic to trans-vaginal to sling surgery again depending on what exactly you have. Non-surgical options include pessary placement. Talk to youy urologist.
