Feeling your internal organs dropping is an embarrassing and worrisome problem. The medical term is pelvic prolapse. Or you may have loss of urine when you cough, sneeze, or exercise. This is called stress incontinence. Many women will not share these problems with her doctor because they worry it will require surgery or they are afraid or embarrassed.
There are a number of ways to improve this problem. But I want to tell you about a very simple non-surgical way to help this problem. It’s as simple as going to your doctor’s office and getting fitted for a pessary.
It’s kind of like using a diaphragm for birth control. It’s painless, easy to use, and it works for up to two thirds of women. It does need to be taken out and cleaned with warm water and soap daily or up to weekly. Then you reinsert it yourself. With a little practice and explanation, it’s something you can easily master.
If pessary use does not work, there are other ways to improve these problems like using physical therapy or sometimes with surgery, as well as some other methods. But using a pessary will help and can serve as a fix until you chose something else.
It may sound confusing, so here’s a video from one of the companies (MedGyn) that sells them to show you how it’s used to help you take care of the Sum of you, Not just Some of you.
