Our doctors in St. George, UT can usually diagnose pelvic organ prolapse by performing a pelvic exam. Other exams or studies may help your doctor assess symptoms associated with prolapse.
Pelvic Prolapse Treatment
In most cases, prolapse can be easily corrected.
- Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises or pelvic floor physical therapy may resolve the mild prolapse cases
- Estrogen Replacement Therapy applied directly to the vagina can restore the health of pelvic organ tissues and improve prolapse problems. Estrogen replacement therapy may be given in conjunction with other prolapse treatments.
- A Pessary is a removable silicone device that is inserted into the vagina to help hold organs in place. Pessaries come in many sizes and shapes and can be fitted to help women with different degrees and types of prolapse.
- Surgery is usually required for cases that cannot be managed with a pessary or a patient does not want a pessary. Depending on the organs involved, your urologist and gynecologist may coordinate their schedules to perform a combined operation.
