Piper Newton offers her top tip for living with and treating prolapse
"Experiment with your body! It takes time to adjust and heal when trying new treatments. Give yourself weeks or even months before you decide something is not working. If you do determine something is not helping, don’t be discouraged. Try something else. Perhaps you need to add a supplement, exercise or complimentary therapy to make the treatment more effective. Or maybe the timing is simply wrong and at another place in your healing journey the therapy will provide benefits. Living with prolapse is about finding balance. Keep playing, it is possible to find a healthy, happy balance!"
