Prolapse of the Uterus


About
Prolapse of the Uterus is a result of pelvic muscles that have become weak or injured. Backache, incontinence, painful intercourse, a heavy feeling, constipation, and discomfort may be indicators of a prolapsed uterus.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Consider natural progesterone replacement instead of estrogen therapy.
  • Kegel's exercises may be helpful in strengthening muscles in the pelvic floor.
  • Talk to your doctor about getting a pessary shaped like a ring to support your uterus. Also discuss possible side effects like problems with intercourse, irritation, bad odor, and infection.
  • The uterus can be resuspended through surgery for women who still want to have children. Women who are finished bearing children may consider vaginal hysterectomy. Know how this latter option will affect you before proceeding with it.
  • When no symptoms are present in prolapsed, it is not necessary to receive treatment for it. An individualized exercise program, however, may be beneficial.


Advice
  • Never strain during a bowel movement.
  • To keep from constipation use fiber daily.
  • Your diet should consume of 75% raw foods and vegetables.
