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 use.
Increased muscle tone may help contain the prolapse, but, if the prolapse is severe, working the muscle strongly or inserting the probe may cause futher issues before other treatment is carried out.
A severe, or Grade 3 prolapse has symptoms as follows:
- Prolapse worsening
- Urinary incontinence
- Ability to feel organs descending into the vagina
- Pain with sitting
- Incomplete bowel emptying
- Inability to have intercourse.
