There is a range of treatment options to choose from. The most suitable treatment method depends on the type, severity, age, and health status of the woman with sagging or sagging. Treatment can be divided into three types: conservative treatment, mechanical treatment, and surgical treatment. For patients with mild ptosis, women with incomplete fertility, and those who do not want or are not suitable for surgery, conservative and mechanical treatment are usually considered. What are the treatment methods for genital prolapse?
1、 Conservative treatment plan
1. Change lifestyle
Simple measures such as losing weight, avoiding weightlifting, treating chronic cough, constipation, and other diseases can alleviate symptoms. These factors all exert pressure on the pelvic floor, so changing to relieve stress may be beneficial.
2. Pelvic floor exercises
These exercises aim to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles through active tightening and interval lifting. Practice can be done sitting, standing, or lying down. Like any exercise program, women should gradually start, increase their contractions, and exercise regularly.
3. Uterine support
Uterine support is a device inserted into the upper part of the vagina to provide support for the pelvic structure. Most uterine supports are made of silicone resin and come in various shapes and sizes. The uterine tray needs to be inserted by a medical expert and can last for 3-4 months, before it needs to be replaced. If inserted properly, women should not feel the uterine support. Vaginal plugs provide a temporary solution for prolapse symptoms for pregnant women, recent mothers, or women waiting for surgery. For women who do not want surgery or are not suitable for candidates, they can also permanently use uterine pads. If the uterine support is too small, it may fall off, and if it is too tight, it can cause irritation, ulcers, bleeding, and pain.
When non surgical treatment options cannot fully alleviate symptoms, it is recommended to undergo surgical repair of prolapse. The usual purpose of surgery is to repair and reconstruct the pelvic support structure, restoring the pelvic organs to their normal position. Restoring and maintaining bladder, intestinal, and sexual functions are also key factors. There are many different surgical and treatment methods for prolapse. The most suitable surgery depends on which organ or organ is declining, the woman's age, previous pelvic surgery history, and whether to preserve the uterus.
1. Vaginal repair
This is related to repairing the tissue that supports the vaginal wall. There are several different types of vaginal repair, depending on the location. Vaginal repair is usually done through the vagina, but now sometimes it is also done through laparoscopy. Laparoscopic surgery is performed through 2-3 small incisions in the abdomen with the help of laparoscopy.
