I have been seeing a women’s health PT for my prolapse since week 7 pp. I discovered the habit dvd around 15 weeks pp. I have a grade 2 prolapse. At my last appt my PT said the Bulge I feel is tissue? Anyway, I am a former division I college runner. And would really like to get back to running. I have been very diligent on my exercises. And I even purchased a kegel toner. This is my second child and was also hoping to have a third one day. But despite all my efforts my prolapse has yet to show any improvement. I am nursing and now 20 weeks pp. do the hormones from nursing play a role in the pelvic floor weakness and is it possible I still have a lot of relaxin in my body? Is there hope that one day I will improve? I feel so discouraged that nothing has changed. When my Pt checks my pelvic floor strength it hasn’t really improved much either.
Thank you for your help!
You are missing some piece of the the rehabilitation puzzle. Have your read through the entire Education section? Being a previous division I athlete you can connect with your body. We can figure this out but you have to have a deep understanding of your breathing, of your TA vs RA, of your co contraction of your pelvic floor, TA, and multifidi – no need for that toner!
Read through the Education section – if you are comfortable, set up a Skype visit with me. We’ll figure this out.
Thank you so much for your response! I will read through the education again and watch the education portion. Again. My Pt felt my recruitment is good! But I don’t understand why there is no improvment. I’d love to do Skype! That would be great! I believe I just got it the Skype section to set that up?
