Normally, the size of the uterus in women is same as an orange or fist. Enlarged uterus is a condition where the uterus is larger than the normal size. It is very difficult to notice an enlarged uterus until and unless women become pregnant. Your doctor will be able to identify it through internal examination. Enlargement of uterus is a symptom associated with Adenomyosis. Yoga asanas are effective in correcting the position and reducing the enlargement of the uterus. A few yoga asanas are discussed below.
Yoga For Enlarged Uterus
1. Boat Pose Or Naukasana
Naukasana is also known as the boat pose. To perform this asana, you need to first lie on your back with the arms on the sides. Now, gently inhale and as you breathe out raise your chest and feet from the ground and extend your arms facing the feet. Ensure your eye, fingers and feet all lie on the same plane.
Now, you can experience tension in the abdomen area as the muscles in that region contract. Stay in this position and gently breathe. Now as you exhale return back to the ground and relax for some time and then repeat again. This asana helps in sucking the uterus inside and maintains this position for a few seconds. This helps in strengthening the supporting ligaments of the uterus.
2. Supta Baddha Konasana
This is also called the reclining bound angle pose, which helps in massaging and toning the reproductive organs. To perform this asana, you need to first sit-down on the floor with your feet placed together. Gently keep the upper portion of your back on a rolled yoga mat or a cushion and relax. Now, remain in this position and concentrate on your breathing for about five minutes.
Headstand is also called Sirsasana. It greatly helps in the circulation of blood to the reproductive organs. To perform this asana, you need to come close to the wall and keep your head on the ground and place your palm beneath your head and gently raise your legs and go on an upside position with the support of the wall. Remain in this position for about three minutes and then return to the normal position and relax.
Marichyasana is an asana where the torso or the upper part of the body is twisted with the legs stretched out. This asana is effective in getting relief from inflammation of the organs in the abdominal area or enlarged uterus. To perform this asana, you need to first sit down and bend the right leg and keep the right foot near the pelvis. Now, gently get your right arm within the right knee and twist the torso towards the left side. Remain in this position for about twenty to thirty seconds and then return to the normal position. Repeat this asana on the other side.
5. Surya Namaskar
For infertility issues surya namaskar is known to be very effective. Surya namaskar is a salutation to the sun. To be able to get pregnant, it is important that the uterus is in the correct position and the cervix should be capable of contracting and dilating easily. Inverted uterus is one of the common causes of infertility in women. Yoga works effectively in rectifying this problem. Repeated performance of surya namaskar on a daily basis helps in getting the uterus back to the normal position.
