Is it safe to have sex with a prolapsed bladder?

Asked by Jacqueline over 5 years ago

Our expert answered:

Yes, it is safe to have sex with a prolapse. However, you may find that sex is uncomfortable, slightly embarrassing or even feel some pain.

Depending on your individual situation, you may need to find other ways to have sexual pleasure aside from intercourse while you work on strengthening your pelvic floor muscles by exercising them, and notice some improvement.

The severity of your prolaspe will determine if you will opt for non-surgical treatments or surgical intervention. It is a good idea to consult with your doctor or health care professional to discuss your options.

On the Poise website, we also have lots of information about the pelvic floor muscle and how to do pelvic floor exercises, including an interactive guide. Visit

I have prolapse and am 6 months pregnant. It's been a long time since we made love so we did last night. |From behind, while I was on my side, so that I wasn't straining anything. It was actually surprisingly more than fine, if not thoroughly enjoyable.
Though, there is some sensitivity around the whole general area, make sure that you're well lubricated.
