The first aspect to consider when it comes to uterus prolapse is prevention. Yes, because the dysfunctions related to the pelvic floor and the organs supported by it, must not be taken as something imposed by a divine scourge, but as the logical and natural and natural consequence of a lack of attention to this issue. We are talking in particular of muscles, which if neglected, could lead to uterine prolapse, cystocele, rectocele and the much feared and widespread incontinence.

Well, one of the most delicate moments in a woman’s life and which can have unpleasant consequences, is certainly that of pregnancy. We have already emphasized how important it is to find time to devote to some physical exercise and we would like to reiterate it again in this particular circumstance. Because it is precisely during the nine months of gestation that the pelvic floor muscles are most stressed, up to the moment of birth when our body naturally releases relaxin, a hormone that will tend to “dilate” and relax the area. affected to allow the passage of the fetus.

Loss of tone

The loss of tone of the muscles that make up the pelvic floor leads to greater stress on the ligaments and tendons that compose it with an irreversible elongation of these structures. These structural failures lead to the loss of support of the pelvic organs with their consequent prolapse. Thus arise those annoying symptoms that sometimes accompany gestation such as incontinence, pelvic pain, haemorrhoidal disease, etc. A well-trained pelvic floor, especially during 9 months, can bring many benefits, such as reducing the risk of excessive laceration during childbirth.

Normally one could follow pre-natal gymnastics courses in the gym, in this particular historical moment, however, the advice to rely on the network; there are many specialized studios that offer online courses, both live and not, to accompany future mothers on this path.

To be accompanied by the exercises tout court, the whole sequence and range of possibilities offered by the Kegel exercises should certainly be noted, which offer a “passive” rehabilitation even after childbirth and as long as we are in the perineal area, specific oil, to also prevent possible lacerations and unpleasant consequences to the delicate area located right between the anus and the vagina.
