Having never birthed a child, I never expected to be at risk of a pelvic floor prolapse and I never expected my self confidence to be hit so hard.  I naively never considered doing Kegels or specific pelvic floor exercises. The second half of 2023 saw me experience a level 5+ prolapse. Dr referred me to a physiotherapist who specialized in Pelvic Floor health and suggested that I try taking estrogen. I chose not to try estrogen and I did manage to find two great physiotherapists and some awesome resources to help you like I have been able to help myself. Eight months on I have improved back to a level one, my self confidence is back and I am on track to be fully recovered and back to great pelvic floor health.

Special note: I affectionately call my women’s health Physio’s, my Fanny Physio’s.

Note – For those in North America, us Aussies call women’s genitalia our Fanny.

This is the Marine Collagen Elixir that I personally used to help support my body reducing the natural atrophy and tissue thinning that happens as we age. I took two bottles a day for the first month and then went back down to one a day.
