Ventrosuspension

Ventrosuspension

What Does Ventrosuspension Mean?

Ventrosuspension refers to the correction of a retroverted uterus (tilted womb). During this procedure, which is performed laparoscopically, the retroverted womb (uterus) is moved into an anteverted position by shortening the ligaments and attaching them to the abdominal wall.

For the majority women, a retroverted uterus (tilted womb) is natural and many women experience no symptoms or problems with their retroverted uterus. However, some women with a retroverted uterus experience chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse) and dysmenorrhea (pain during menstruation).

Ventrosuspension Recovery

When performed laparoscopically it usually means an overnight stay in hospital, care should be taken 4 - 8 weeks following the surgery and heavy lifting should be avoided.

You can safely use a Kegel8 Pelvic Toner with a tilted womb and if you are undergoing ventrosuspension surgery kegel exercising will help with your rehabilitation following surgery.

You can start your Kegel8 pelvic floor exercise as soon as your Consultant/Surgeon states it is safe to do so, and remember with ventrosuspension surgery you may experience nerve damage with the repositioning of your womb, so Kegel8 exercise can also help there too.
