Learn how to exercise safely, strengthen your prolapse and reduce your risk of prolapse worsening.

Prolapse Exercises is a complete exercise guide for women with prolapse seeking to exercise safely and protect their pelvic floor.


What is a Prolapsed Uterus?

A prolapsed uterus involves the uterus (womb) and moving down into the vagina from the normal position above.

Uterine prolapse is the second most commonly occurring prolapse in women.

What Causes a Prolapsed Uterus?

A range of factors can increase the risk of uterine prolapse including:

  • Pregnancy and Childbirth
  • Menopause and ageing
  • Inherited laxity (looseness) of pelvic support tissues
  • Conditions that load the pelvic floor (e.g. obesity, straining and constipation, chronic coughing)
  • Heavy lifting

Prolapsed Uterus Treatment

Non Surgical Treatment

a. Pelvic floor exercise rehabilitation

b. Modification of associated lifestyle factors (e.g.unsafe exercises)

c. Management of coexisting health conditions

d. Fitting a support pessary

Surgical Treatment

Reconstructive surgery will be determined by your specialist and usually includes a procedure to restore the position of the uterus (called a uterosacral suspension).

Some women undergo hysterectomy for uterine prolapse treatment.

Pelvic floor exercises are generally recommended for women following uterine prolapse surgery to promote long-term pelvic floor support.

Exercise Management of Prolapsed Uterus

There are two types of exercises that can help to manage uterine prolapse:

1. Pelvic floor exercises for strength and support

2. Pelvic floor safe exercises for whole body strength and fitness.
