Since the Mesh Surgery Scandal (the most popular operation for prolapse) more and more women are looking into the management of pelvic organ prolapse and how to fix prolapse without surgery. Many women grow to understand that managing and living with prolapse is not a death sentence, irrespective of how utterly devastating the initial diagnosis is. Women are using the emotional pain and agony of prolapse as a springboard to getting a stronger pelvic floor and more importantly to prevent further prolapse too.

1. Kegel8: make Kegel8 your pelvic floor exercise routine and in just 12 weeks you will know what a strong, healthy pelvic floor feels like.
2. Watch your weight: If you're carrying a few extra pounds then so is your pelvic floor. Losing just 10% of your body weight can result in a 50% increase in pelvic floor strength
3. Diet: straining to go to the loo is a big pelvic floor no-no. If you find you suffer with constipation, check your eating habits and increase your intake of fibrous foods.
4. Vitamin D: vitamin D deficiency has been proven to cause muscle weakness. Supplementing with a good quality vitamin D can improve the effectiveness of your pelvic floor exercise

As well as exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor using a Kegel8 pelvic toner you will also benefit from exercise that is pelvic floor safe, this means that the exercise you do to strengthen your pelvic floor will not overload it and not put you in danger of further prolapse damage.
Exercises to avoid with prolapse
You understand the importance of weight control, and you want to be active, now is the time to learn what exercises to avoid with prolapse such as:
- High intensity exercise such as running
- Sit ups, inc. exercise ball sit ups
- Double leg raises
- Weight lifting, inc. kettle bells, etc.
- The plank and some pilates push-ups
Don't get carried away with 'Body Pump', 'Cross Fit' and other high intensity classes, these gym and exercise classes can lure you out of your comfort zone and encourage you to put too much pressure on an already weak pelvic floor - you could worsen an existing prolapse or even cause another. You need to take care of your pelvic floor - not wrap it up in cotton wool and consign yourself to a life of inactivity, and it is vital you understand that you must not overload your pelvic floor. Remember you can modify any exercise to prevent overloading your pelvic floor muscles. Reduce the repetitions; make sure you breathe out when you exert pressure and avoid any exercise that creates too much downward pressure on your pelvic floor.

Comes complete with an easy exercise plan, created by Amanda Savage, to get results in 12 weeks!
Here at Kegel8, we are all too aware of the discomfort, not to mention the anxiety, that is caused by pelvic organ prolapse. So, if you are experiencing an uncomfortable ‘dragging’ sensation, are struggling with bladder and bowel control, bowel emptying and a lack of intimate sensation, you are certainly not alone! Indeed, more common that you may realise, pelvic organ prolapse affects millions of people worldwide. And we are extremely familiar with the impact it has on both physical and emotional well-being, as well as on life in general.
It’s true that, left untreated, the symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse will simply worsen over time. However, they should by no means be accepted as an inevitability! Indeed, regular pelvic floor exercise has been proven to build muscle and tone, creating a thicker support shelf for the organs to rest on. This essentially holds them up and keeps them in place. In addition, much like any other exercise, it builds strength and tone to ensure the muscles do not tire easily and can react quickly to provide additional support during strenuous activities. This improved endurance and strength also helps with bladder and bowel control. So, by simply performing regular pelvic floor exercise, you can get your life back on track!
The included easy exercise plan was created by Amanda Savage to prevent, treat, and alleviate the associated symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse. It is proven to build muscle and tone and create a thicker support shelf for the organs to rest on, essentially holding them up and keeping them in place. In addition, this simple exercise regime will improve endurance and ensure the muscles do not tire as easily, so that they can react quickly and provide the optimum support when performing strenuous activities. This improved endurance and strength also helps with bladder and bowel control and the contractions have been shown to calm the nerves responsible for a sensitive bladder. The plan even encourages the user to practise contracting their muscles alongside the machine, which prepares them for ‘real life’ scenarios when they don’t have access to the machine.
So, why opt for an electronic pelvic floor exerciser rather than performing your Kegels independently?
It is thought that many women push downwards when performing independent pelvic floor exercises, which, rather than strengthening the muscles, can lead to further damage. In addition, it can be difficult to locate and target the correct muscles, making exercise less effective. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 V2 Electronic Pelvic Toner removes the guesswork and essentially acts as a Sat-Nav for your pelvic floor muscles, correctly targeting and stimulating a contraction within them using a small electric current. These contractions build strength and tone in a matter of weeks! With 20 clinically proven pelvic floor exercise programmes which vary in frequency, intensity and duration, the Ultra 20 is proven to treat a variety of different conditions, including pelvic organ prolapse and bladder/bowel control and emptying. And, in addition to tailored programmes, the specific 12-week exercise plans created by Amanda Savage advise exactly how the device should be used, depending upon the condition, to ensure the very best treatment.
