There are several treatment options available for pelvic organ prolapse.

The most suitable for you will depend on:

  • the severity of your symptoms
  • the severity of the prolapse
  • your age and health
  • whether you’re planning to have children in the future

You may not need any treatment if the prolapse is mild to moderate and not causing any pain or discomfort.

Treatment options include:

  • lifestyle changes
  • pelvic floor exercises
  • hormone treatment
  • vaginal pessaries
  • surgery

Your doctor should offer you the full range of treatments and explain the possible benefits and risks of each option. This will help you choose the right one for you.
