Uterine prolapse is a common problem in women. The problem is more common among those women who have already had pregnancies and have given birth to children. While most women find this problem to be slightly embarrassing and shy away or do not want to discuss it with a doctor; medical practitioners suggest that it is not healthy to hide this problem. A person suffering from this problem should seek medical advice immediately and should not neglect this problem as it has chances of worsening, which can lead to severe problems later.
The causes of uterine prolapse can be many, ranging from hormonal imbalances to certain drugs that have affected your body organs. Some kind of complications in the pregnancy that a woman has had before, or some problem during the process of childbirth too can cause this problem. Like most medical problems, this one too cannot be traced back directly to any one definite cause. It can be a combination of things that can lead up to this situation.
Over the years, many doctors have suggested that the process of hysterectomy is the best. However, advances in the modern science has brought about some various kinds of treatments that can be used to deal with the problem, when it is still at a developing stage and has not reached the stage of full complication. For instance, the Arvigo Massage, also known as the Maya Abdominal Massage is a good option. Coming from the Arvigo Techniques, this massage is helpful in repositioning of organs which have fallen out of their place in the body. This massage was developed by traditional Mayan healers and is famous all across the world now. Unlike surgery, this is obviously less painful, less risky, and less costly too.
Then there are Kegel exercises too that can be carried out by the patient in order to get this problem sorted. Specifically aimed at the pelvic and the abdominal region, these exercises are very helpful. Kegel exercises basically make the pelvic floor stronger and thicker so that it is able to hold the uterus more firmly which slips out when the pelvic floor is weak. As long as the technique used is right, the exercises are very helpful.
A pessary can also turn out to be helpful. It is a device that can be worn inside the vagina to hold the uterus in place. Pessaries can be easily removed after several weeks and cleaned and care for. The only side-effects that you will face with this device are that of increased discharge and odor. Apart from that, this again is a risk-free process which does not involve any kind of complications as might occur in the process of surgery.
Uterine prolapsed can turn out to be dangerous if ignored, thus every woman needs to make sure that she does not neglect this problem in case it ever arises.
