Pelvic Organ Prolapse - How to prevent?

How do I prevent pelvic organ prolapse?

Pelvic floor exercises taught and practised early, before menopause, can help in reducing the incidence of prolapse. Other preventive strategies include avoiding factors that will result in chronic increased intra-abdominal pressure such as smoking, constipation and heavy lifting. It is also important to keep within the recommended body mass index to prevent obesity.
