If the symptoms are not too advanced, you will be advised to do Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvis muscles. Other non-surgical options are estrogen therapy because estrogen helps keep pelvic muscles strong or using a vaginal diaphragm or large tampon to support the bladder and push it back into place.
Surgery to repair Pelvic Organ Prolapse can be performed through the abdomen or transvaginally, through the vagina, using stitches, or with the addition of surgical mesh to reinforce the repair and correct the anatomy.
Doctors seem to prefer the transvaginal method. However, if you still want to get pregnant, avoid surgery although a Caesarian delivery is still possible. Vaginal surgical solutions are never guaranteed. While some may last for years, there is a great risk for recurrence because of the forces of gravity resulting in the stretching of tissues.
A small incision is made in the vaginal area and two small incisions are made through the skin in the groin area. Next, the transvaginal mesh extends from one incision toward the second incision to create a hammock of support around the urethra. The mesh sling is designed to add support and stabilize the urethra. With the “hammock” in place, normal urinary function may be restored. The mesh tension is adjusted so that the leakage of urine is reduced. After the positioning of the mesh, the small incisions in the groin area and the top of the vaginal canal will be closed and bandaged.
