Uterine Prolapse Prevention


To help prevent uterine prolapse:

  • Do Kegel exercises regularly, especially before and after childbirth.
  • Avoid constipation. Straining from constipation stresses the pelvic muscles.
  • Maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise.
  • Don't smoke. If you smoke, quit. Smoking may cause chronic coughing, which weakens pelvic muscles.
  • Limit heavy lifting.
  • If you are menopausal , discuss hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with your doctor. HRT at menopause helps retain muscle tone, which may prevent uterine prolapse. However, there are health risks associated with this treatment. Discuss all risks and benefits with your doctor.
