Update:  I find that if I do a few of the exercises, keep the proper posture & do some other exercises in general, the situation is better.  But if I get lazy, the problem returns.
So I need to be dilligent, but I don't really have to overdo it, either.
I forget to do the kegels, but I think they help a little too.

The weather is still bad, so I'm not walking as much.

Those of you who are suffering in silence:  Have hope. There are answers. Ribbit certainly gave us hope.  Thanks, Ribbit!!

I was reading from the Whole Woman material on line that kegels can be bad, but I think in moderation they may help.  I also wonder what the definition of a kegel is.
I think most folks think it is just to tighten the front area, but the ones I learned in childbirth classes were more comprehensive.  
You were to stand up, tighten the anal area for a few seconds, then tighten as if the speculum was inserted (the whole area as much as able), then you went back & were to tighten your buttocks & pretend you were holding a 50 cent piece on top between the cheeks.  That certainly toned the whole area.
I hope I explained that properly.  Of course, prolapses can be any of the 3 area (bladder, uterus, & bowel), so this paradigm makes more sense. I even think that if you prolapse in one area, the rest follow more easily, so again, this makes more sense.

The classes were by a Margaret Gamper (or Gampers), a local person. She died in about 2002 at 92, if I remember correctly.  She was close 70 when I took the classes. She did mention that the 'kegels' she taught would help in the future for urinary incontinence & had the men in the class do them (as much as they could!   ) during the class. I'm sure they didn't do them at home like we ladies did!!
