Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Vaginal prolapse is the inward and downward bulging of the vaginal walls. It occurs when the supporting tissues of the lower pelvis weaken. The lack of support causes the walls of the vagina walls to collapse. Other structures or organs near the vagina are also shifted. Types of vaginal prolapse include:

Cystocele (dropped bladder)—when the collapse involves the front of the vagina and bladder
Rectocele —when the collapse involves the back of the vagina and rectum
Enterocele—when the collapse involves the top vaginal wall and small bowel
The severity of vaginal prolapse may be simply defined as:

First degree—collapse into the upper part of the vagina
Second degree—collapse further into the vaginal canal
Third degree—collapse that reaches the vaginal opening or extends beyond the opening
There are more sophisticated ways of measuring and describing prolapses. Specialist physicians will use them.

Unfortunately there are no supplements or pills to take to place the vagina back in position. There are some things you go do however, to help. It will all depend on the severity of the prolapse.

Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. First or second degree prolapse without symptoms may not require treatment. Treatment options include:

Kegel Exercises
Kegel exercises consist of a conscious effort to ‘squeeze’ the pelvic muscles. It should feel like you were trying to prevent urination. Each ‘squeeze’ (contraction) of the muscles should be held for 10 seconds, and then relaxed. Repeat a total of ten times for each exercise period. The entire routine should be repeated four times per day.

Pessary Insertion
Your doctor may insert a pessary into the upper portion of the vagina. A pessary is a rubbery, doughnut-shaped device. It helps to prop up the uterus and bladder.

I hope this helps.
