    Is it truely possible to help return to a full functioning life after a grade 2 bladder prolapse. I must have had a milld prolapse and then lifted the dog and actually felt it dropping in my pelvis. I FEEL So STUPID for not realising this was what was going on, however I had no other symptoms than felt a bit weird to jog (not that I tried much). Amin regret of not getting things checked post partum. I am officially 1 year from birth and felt great until 8 weeks ago when it happened. Is it likely that the other organs will prolapse also if the wall is weak?

    I don’t have any incontinence and am still breast feeding heavily. 3-4 times a day.
    Im such an active person and feel this annoying tampon budge.

    Nat,
    Not only is it possible, but it is probable that you will rehab back to being symptom free…BUT…you have to do the work. You have to correct your daily habits and posture.

    Please begin to read through the Educate Yourself section. Start with the Posture topic as you can begin this immediately. Begin to pair this knowledge with the Hab It video and then you will begin to see improvements.

    I know it is alarming to feel this sense of weakness at the base of our pelvis, but this work will no doubt leave you more knowlegeable of your own body, posture, and health moving forward.

    Thanks for that.

    Started doing it already so thanks for that..

    Is it possible to get back to boxing too?
    I read somewhere kick boxing not so
    Good for prolapse, but I love kicking a big pad. Considering I can’t run @ this stage.

    Another thing – is it likely that with prolapse the tissue stretches, weakens or actually tears??

    Do u think using a pessery is a better way of strengthening PF cos bladder not hanging on it? I’m trying to avoid one as hear it can be tedious

    Yes, you can get back to kick boxing, I have had a patient return to high level kick boxing competition, but you will have to be very in tune with your breath. No bearing down or bracing with your rectus when you strike. TA engagement, keeping your chest up, and breathing out when you strike are key.

    On your second question – there is no risk of further tearing unless you have a complete prolapse hanging outside of your vaginal opening. The damage to the tissue has been done through years of bad posture, poor habits, pregnancy, delivery, etc. Now that you are learning about neutral spine posture, appropriate muscles strengthening, and good habits, your body has the opportunity through the constant remodeling of soft tissue (a spider web of connective tissue within your pelvis) to help support your pelvic organs in the elevated position you want them. Keep in mind for years, we were all dependent on the ligaments and tendons and muscles to support our pelvic organs without a second conscious thought from us. But when those primary stabiizers are forever changed, we look to our secondary stabilizers I described above to help hold our pelvic organs in position.

    Finally, I would not recommend a pessary as a first line of defense. The pressure the pessary puts on the muscle fibers supporting your vaginal canal can inhibit the muscle firing. I would always recommend an effort to rehab without a pessary in if at all possible. Then, once you have exhausted all other options, you can look to that as an option.
