    I have heard before that sit-ups and anything that compresses the abdomen can strain the pelvic floor, but had heard that the plank was a safe abdominal exercise. Also a pity that this video only tells you what exercises to avoid - it does not contain any information about the "Simple, easy to do exercises to help strengthen pelvic floor muscles" mentioned in the title! Is part of the video missing perhaps?

    I'm 62 and I had a hysterectomy 14 years ago and a TVT procedure 1 year ago. I took up curling for the 1st time this year and I have just realized that I have a prolapsed bladder. Do you think that bending over while sweeping in the rock might have been a cause of the prolapsed bladder?

  • Emma

    I am afraid the physical activities involved in curling could certainly have contributed to your prolapse. Unfortunately, women are not always told that even after a TVT procedure it is still really important to exercise your pelvic floor muscles in order to prevent your pelvic floor weakness worsening. A Kegel8 can still help you, the Kegel8 Ultra 20 can prevent your prolapse getting any worse. Please don't think that because your bladder has prolapsed it is 'game over' - if you ignore it, your prolapse could get worse and if you do something now you can still enjoy curling (you just need to take care of yur pelvic floor and listen to your body). I hope this helps but please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like any more information.
