I do take the sepia. I got this advise from my "Hearts & Hands, A Midwife's Guide". I buy the strongest potency available at Whole Foods. The book suggest 200C. Can't find 200C at any health store but you can order it online. The 30C works fine for me anyways. I can't explain why it works since the store guide to homeopathic remedies say its for moods, but it seems to work.
Sepia does work for prolapse. What you're reading about moods is only one component of the whole remedy. Each remedy has a profile that involves a whole body description, and multiple symptoms that you should make overall or more so than another.
