If you come to see me for help with a pelvic organ prolapse. The first thing I will suggest you do is stop doing any “kegels” (repeated squeezing of the vagina.) I believe that repeated pelvic floor squeezing exercises can be more harm than help for women experiencing prolapse. Instead, focus on finding ways to release tension within the pelvis. Below are some links to help you get started

I have recently done a podcast for Dr Brianne Grogans podcast channel Lady Bits which explains more about my approach to treating pelvic organ prolapse.
