Can I use a pelvic floor exerciser if I have a vaginal prolapse?
If you have a prolapse, you should consult your medical advisor before using a pelvic floor exerciser.
Increased muscle tone may help contain the prolapse. However, if the prolapse is severe, working the muscle strongly or inserting the probe may cause further issues before other treatment can be completed.
A severe or Grade 3 prolapse has the following symptoms:
- Prolapse worsening
- Urinary incontinence
- Ability to feel organs descending into the vagina
- Pain whilst sitting
- Incomplete bowel emptying
- Inability to have intercourse
