How to Cure Pelvic Organ Prolapse With Insurance-Covered Treatment?

The most common types of treatment options covered by insurance for pelvic organ prolapse is pessary or surgery. Pessaries are fairly inexpensive, but undergoing surgery can cost a lot even if it is covered by insurance.

Pessaries are covered by insurance and are inexpensive, but it requires regular doctor visits (every two to three months), vaginal cleaning, and replacement.
