Uterine Prolapse

Uterine prolapse involves the dropping of the uterus from its normal position in the pelvis down into the vaginal area.

The uterus is designed to be held in place by what could be called a “hammock” of supportive tissue composed of muscles and ligaments. This structure is referred to as the “pelvic floor.” If the pelvic floor is compromised, the uterus is unable to maintain its intended position, and it descends into the vaginal canal. A number of problems can result when this occurs.

Factors that Lead to Uterine Prolapse

The most common factors involved in uterine prolapse are age and childbirth. The severity of uterine prolapse can vary from minimal cases that may never even be diagnosed, to serious cases that can make a woman’s life quite unmanageable. Options for treatment include support devices, special exercises, and even surgical procedures that are appropriate for some individuals.

Childbirth, especially difficult deliveries or multiple vaginal deliveries, are probably the biggest factors that lead to uterine prolapse.

Symptoms of Uterine Prolapse

Signs of uterine prolapse vary greatly from patient to patient. In minor instances of prolapse, a woman may not even know she has it, and is totally without symptoms. The more advanced the case is, the more symptoms that are present, and to a greater degree. Some potential symptoms include:

  • Pain in the lower back, pelvis, groin, and/or lower abdomen.
  • Sense of “pulling” or unusual “heaviness” in the pelvic region.
  • Tissue visibly protruding from the vagina, sometimes irritated and sore, producing ulcers.
  • Painful intercourse, along with urine leakage and difficulty experiencing orgasm.
  • Vaginal discharge.
  • Sense of “sitting on a ball”.
  • The feeling that something is about to fall out of the vagina. Incontinence that worsens with effort, such as during heavy lifting, sneezing, laughing, or coughing.
  • Inability to completely empty the bladder.
  • Frequent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).
  • Frequent urge to urinate with little production.
  • Difficulty having bowel movements.
  • Finding it necessary to push your fingers into the pelvic region in order to successfully have a bowel movement or empty your bladder

Healing Uterine Prolapse Naturally

Kacip Fatimah extract, Kegel exercises, and antigravity exercises are all helpful to heal from uterine prolapse.

Kacip Fatimah Extract

Kacip Fatimah is an invaluable female-specific herb. It is the female herbal equivalent to Tongkat Ali. It is a great post-partum/post-natal herb that is effective for womb healing. It is one of the best herbal uterine tonics known and available.

Additional uterine herbs that can be taken to heal uterine prolapse include red raspberry leaf, rehmannia, squawvine, blue cohosh, and beth (or birth) root. The above herbs can be mixed together (with Kacip Fatimah) and consumed throughout the day.

Kegel Exercises

Kegel exercises are highly recommended exercises for purposes of healing uterine prolapse or prolapse of the uterus.

A Kegel exercise, named after Dr. Arnold Kegel, consists of contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor (sometimes called the “Kegel muscles”).

The aim of Kegel exercises is to fortify muscle tone by strengthening the pubococcygeus muscles of the pelvic floor. Kegel is a popular prescribed exercise for pregnant women to prepare the pelvic floor for physiological stresses of the later stages of pregnancy and vaginal childbirth.

Kegel exercises are said to be good for treating vaginal prolapse and preventing uterine prolapse in women. Kegel exercises also may be beneficial in treating urinary incontinence in both men and women. Kegel exercises may also increase sexual gratification.

Factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, aging, being overweight, and abdominal surgery such as cesarean section, often result in the weakening of the pelvic muscles. This can be assessed by either digital examination of vaginal pressure or using a Kegel perineometer.

    A:

    I recommend the Full Body Detox, but if you will stay on drugs, then don't consume the herbs, because drugs and herbs don't mix! You'd be wasting your money. Consider a vegan diet! See DIETARY CHOICE section on our site under More Services.

    Q: I live in London in the UK. I have recently been diagnosed with a full pelvic floor prolapsed after a twin pregnancy. This includes bladder, bowel and rectum. The organs themselves are fine but standard procedure is major surgery which I don't want to go down. Are there any herbs to help this condition and strengthen these apart from pelvic floor exercises? Any insight would be appreciated. Peace and blessings

    A:

    The surgery is unnecessary. My wife experienced uterine prolapsed after our last child 4 months ago and she is 100% healed today. In her case she pushed too hard and that caused the organs to prolapsed. She did undergo surgery. She took herbs (Dherbs FEMALE HEALTH TEA, MOON CYCLE FORMULA, and YONI FORMULA), did her "SEA SALT SOAKS" (see our article by this title), kegel exercises, and anti-gravity exercises. You can do the same, Beloved!

    Q: I have been living with uterine fibroids for about 2 1/2 years. My uterus is the size of a 3-month pregnancy now. I had always counted on getting surgery following in my sister's footsteps but...I don't want to. I know that surgery will not cure them and they will possibly return. So now I am looking for alternative ways to solve this problem. I have some questions: What complete regimen do you recommend for this? 1. How long have other clients said it took for their fibroids to disappear? 2. Mine I believe is as big as a cantaloupe or larger and there are a bunch there. 3. Will my uterus go back to its normal size as well after they shrink, disappear? Thanks so much for reading and your advice. Once I know I can buy the right formulas to start my healing.

    A:

    We recommend you perform the Fibroid Cleanse, which is a 20 Day all-natural program to help with the reduction of fibroids and tumors in the female reproductive system.

    Q: Good day. I am having uterine retention, and I am in the first trimester of my pregnancy (9 wks). I am told that the retention is caused by an enlarged uterus that is pushing up on my cervix, causing blockage to the urethra. They have done a sonogram and bloodwork. Fibroids found, but not to explain the enlarged size of my uterus. What do you recommend to naturally assist my body? Thank you for your time.

    A:

    I really don't recommend healing while pregnant, however, the best cleanse that you could perform while pregnant (that would also help the baby nutrition-wise) would be to perform the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. Drink plenty of Red Raspberry Tea too during your entire pregnancy. Like, 2-3 cups daily!

    Q: Hello, I am contemplating the Total Woman Cleanse because I have uterine fibroids. One of the fibroids is rather large, taking up the major portion of my uterus. What do you think will occur with these fibroids during the cleanse? I think the large one is contributing to painful ovulation. Should I expect heavy bleeding on the next menstrual cycle? Thank you for your insight.

    A:

    The Female Cleanse would be a great kit to prepare your body before the Fibroid Cleanse

    The Female Cleanse may provide a multitude of benefits that may or may not include heavy bleeding. Either way, your body will give you all the information you need to know during your cleanse.

    Q: I've been plagued by uterine fibroids. I've had 6 surgeries and they keep coming back I tried your detox and female detox plan, eating healthy. I thought I was doing well but they've come back. I want to try to have another child with my husband of 15 years. My doctor wants to do IVF. He says it's our only hope. I'm 39 he says time is running out. I believe there is another way. My doctor is insisting I'm wasting time & money trying to use alternative & herbal remedies. He says if there was a magical herb there would be no plants or trees left. I am ready to accept whatever fate is bestowed upon me but don't want to become homeless in the process. Your honest and professionalism is greatly needed. Sincerely.

    A:

    The choice is your and yours alone to make! Naturally, to heal will take some time, just as much time as it took to develop the fibroids via what you ate, thought, did, etc. You have to stay committed to any natural protocol, Beloved! Naturally healing takes time!

    Q: I have uterine fibroids that are causing irregular periods and anemia. I have tried your menstrual cycle formula and the fibroid formula but I'm not sure if I should use these together or one versus the other. I would also like to know if these formulas prevent pregnancy or if I need to take the herbal contraception as well. Please advise ASAP! I need to replenish my supply. Is there anything to help a person with what doctors say is Multiple Sclerosis, lesion in spine and brain in MRI test and balance is off?

    A:

    You can take the Menstrual Cycle Formula and the Fibroid Formula together, as they complement one another. These formulas will help reduce your symptoms.

    Herbal Contraception is the best formula to take to help reduce the risk of unwanted pregnancies.

    For multiple sclerosis, first perform the Full Body Cleanse. This cleanse will help reset your system and perform optimally.

    After you complete the cleanse, do a regimen of 3 capsules each of Brain Booster, Circulation Aid, and Central Nervous System Formula.

    Q: Thank you for your reply. I’m interested to buy your products because I want to be relieved from pain occurring monthly associated with my menstrual cycle. This affects me so much. I’m a regular income earner with a salary to meet my basic needs. I will save a little daily so I can buy your product. This might help me relieve the symptoms. From my last ultrasound, my uterine fibroid is just 3 cm in size. There are 3 and the 2 are smaller in size but I suspect this causes the pain. Pain starts 3 days before menstruation until after my ovulation. It last for about 15 days a month and it affects me so much. My pain is at the lower right abdomen and pelvic area. I also feel cramps in my right leg. It is most appreciated if you could help me. God bless.

    A:

    Beloved, purchase a bottle of MOON CYCLE FORMULA and FEMALE HEALTH TEA and take these 3 days before your menses begin. These 2 products are very economical and will give you relief until you can perform one of the kits and regimens.

    Q: My aunt has malignant uterine cancer and is currently on chemotherapy. If the family is unwilling to take her off the chemotherapy how effective will the FIBRIOD BUSTER be? What would you recommend in this situation? Will the chemo out way any benefits of any herbal remedies?

    A:

    WOW!!! CHEMOTHERAPY!!! THAT'S NO GOOD AND IS A POISON TO THE BODY. CHEMO FEEDS CANCER. IN ALL HONESTY, TAKING DRUGS SUCH AS CHEMO DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF TAKING HERBS. IT SHOULD BE ONE OR THE OTHER. GOD MADE THE HERBS FOR THE SERVICE OF MAN (PSALM 104:14) AND FOR MEDICINE (EZEKIEL 47:12), NOT PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS AND CHEMOTHERAPY.

    Q: The first time I had cancer it was uterine cancer where they did a hysterectomy. Now she has cancer in her liver, kidneys, on her stomach lining and spine. I am very concerned with my health so you may be correct. However, how do I deal with the sores that have manifested already? I am starting to meditate more to help me deal with my fears and emotions. What do you recommend?

    Q:

    A:

    Fibroids develop from certain foods within the diet such as sugar, dairy, certain meats and other processed foods. When your body doesn't expel waste properly the tumors can develop. We always recommend doing the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Fibroid Cleanse. Both cleanses require you to adjust your diet, which is a major part in getting rid of the tumors. The Full Body Cleanse eliminates the toxins and waste from your body and detoxes all of your major organs. The body is always more receptive to healing when your overall health is in a better state. The Fibroid Cleanse includes multiple formulas that helps the tumors shrink. You can continue with the Fibroid Formula after cleansing. P

    Q: I have a condition called endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus, is found elsewhere in the body. Last year, I had surgery to remove the excess tissue, but the only thing that day was help relieve pelvic pain. Although I sometimes still get pain, it's not as painful as before. My husband and I have been trying to conceive, however due to my condition, it is obviously making it very difficult for us since it's known for these women to have a higher risk of infertility. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Infertility is easy to reverse. First, perform the Full Body Detox (to help cleanse the human body). Next, perform the Total Woman Cleanse (which works on your female hormonal system). Lastly, perform the Fertility Kit (which enhances potential of conception). Read some of our FREE health articles on our site. We have articles on "Endometriosis" and "Infertility." There is hope for you, Beloved!

    Q: I am 47 years old, African American female, whose health has been failing for the past six years (75 lbs overweight, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, poor circulation, long-term/short-term memory loss). I have a uterine fibroid the size of a 23-week-old fetus. Rather take the natural way out. God does work in mysterious ways?I stumbled upon your website today. My plan is to do the Full Body CLeanse first. Please advise me on the use of the Female Cleanse and Fibroid Formula. Can the two be used in conjunction?

    A:

    We recommend that you perform the Full Body Cleanse (and the soak mentioned in the Full Body Detox Companion) for 20 days followed by the Female Cleanse for 20 days, followed by the  Weight Release Kit and Regimen. After you finish your cleanses, your regimen should consist of Fibroid Formula, Weight Release Formula, Electric Greens, and Detox Tea.

    Do not use the Fibroid Formula in conjunction with the Female Cleanse or any other cleanse. Each cleanse must maintain its own set of formulas. Only use the Fibroid Formula once your cleanses are complete.

    Purchase the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual for better and healthier food choices (on the cleanses and while off the cleanses). It is best to optimize your diet in order to achieve the best results and potentially heal yourself from your variety of ailments.

    Q: I am a voluptuous (plus sized) African American female who has large fibroids (size of 7 month pregnancy). I am planning to have uterine artery embolization this spring. I came across your website and am interested in the full body detox and the fibroid buster kit. Which product do you suggest?

    A:

    I suggest BOTH! First perform the FULL BODY DETOX, secondarily, perform the FIBROID BUSTER kit and regimen. With fibroids your size you will need constant cleansing of your body and a change of diet. You require a life change! Do this and you will heal naturally!

    Q: I recently ordered the Female Package as well as the Fibroid buster. While I trust your company and its products, I realize that everyone is different and I feel the need to address an issue. I have been doing some research that gave me warnings against red clover, stating that it is an herb that can actually stimulate estrogen receptor positive breast cancer cells to grow. While I have no reason to believe that I have positive BC cells in my body, I would like to take every possible precaution to assure I am doing the right things. I have taken every measure to eliminate pharmaceutical, and xenoestrogens from my life in an attempt to rebalance my hormones naturally. I have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids as well as estrogen dominance so this issue is definitely a concern for me. I have listed the link below with the source of this information. I would love to hear your thoughts on this matter.

    A:

    Continue to don't believe the hype! Herbs are benevolent foods and help you, not hurt you. Red Clover is the best herb available as the most natural source of beneficial bio-organic and available female estrogen hormone -- THE BEST! Therefore, I highly recommend Red Clover for females for every female complaint and/or to maintain female health. This herb is noble. In re fibroid tumors, we are introducing our NEW 3-Wekk Fibroid Buster Kit and Regimen to expedite the healing process of uterine-ovarian-cervical tumors and cysts. I highly recommend this kit. However, right now I would recommend the Fibroid Buster formula and Moon Cycle formula in addition to the female health tea. Your estrogen dominance is due to UN-NATURAL hormone, not natural hormone -- so needed to worry about natural sources of hormone (from herbs). Stay positive, believe in the best (especially for yourself), stay focused (on your healing), keep a positive attitude about your state of being (attitude about self), and live righteously and success in all ways is yours. There is help for you, Beloved! Read some of our health articles pertaining to female reproductive health issues. You'll find them interesting! Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com
