Constipation and how to lift when going to toilet


I thought the uterine prolapse had vanished for some reason but now I understand it takes a lot of devotion to this matter. My question is how does one lift herself from the seat I simply cannot get this? Elbows on knees and lift up from seat how do you do this and do your bowel movements at the same time. Working on constipation problem, it's getting better but hard not to strain. Thanks.

Hi Rachel,

Maybe "forearms" on the thighs is more descriptive. You want to rock up slightly onto your feet. Your skin can even stay in contact with the seat - just lift your weight off. You will steadily build strength in your thigh muscles and this will become very easy and natural.


I just tilt myself forwards so bottom is not hard onto the seat :)
