    Hey guys. Know I'm not as bad as some people here but need to ask some advice. I'm 24 and was diagnosed with IBS at the age of 21. This suprised me, as I used to have a reliable stomach. Having tried a lot of different treatments, I'm now on amitriptyline which is helping no end but I've come to the conclusion that I may have a prolapse, as I feel a protrusion whenever I go to wipe. I'm now of the opinion that I don't have IBS, but a prolapse caused by years of straining on the toilet. The doctors have had a look but they didn't see anything. I have read that it is possible to have a normal exam whilst having a prolapse but my gp has told me to wait for 6 months and see how I do. Not sure what to do now, truely believe I have a prolapse or something similar but not sure where to go next. Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks

    hi ,the same thing was happening me for a few months i wasnt sure what it was ,so i decided to take a digital camera with me when i went to the bathroom,and when i felt the protrusion i took a few pictures because my doctor also could not see anything,i brought the camera to the doctors and it was a prolapse ,just an idea, hope this helps

    I just recommend you go to a colo-rectal surgeon who perfoms prolapse surgery and ask him to determine if you have it.

    I am 25- I have recently had a baby and I am now suffering from moderate bladder prolapse. (I had rotational forceps and an episiotomy). I have been doing pelvic floor exercises for the last few weeks after discovering the prolapse. (I was completely oblivious to the need to do them pre/post-natally before that). The pelvic floor exercises don't seem to be working much, and I am worrying that the prolapse is actually getting worse. If I have prolapse surgery would that prevent me from giving birth vaginally in the future? Would it impact on sexual function/sensation?

    I would speak to your Dr and ask for physiotherapy training. Lots of women with pelvic organ prolapse aren't able to identify their pelvic floor muscles properly. A pessary may help support the prolapse. NHS offer a limited range of pessaries (mainly the ring is prescribed but there are others available from medical companies. I would recommend the T pessary as this was designed for cystocele and rectocele prolapses. As they come in all sizes you will need to be measured by your Dr first.

    do you keep weeing? You may need uro dynamics to diagnose the bladder prolapse properly. A TVT can rectify this problem.

    ive got a prolapse of back wall of vagina , having trouble with my bowels and leaking abit of urine . what kind of prolapse have i got.

    I have a prolapse of the front vaginal wall. The effects are not distressing. I have some mild urinary incontinence caused by a weakened pelvic floor after having 4 kids. If I keep up the exercises then the leakage is minimised to when I have a full bladder and cough/jump on a trampoline. The prolapse does not cause me discomfort and sex is still good for me and my husband. I am overweight, almost obese and I know losing weight would be good for both the mild incontinence and prolapse. I would like to avoid surgery for as long as possible. It is not convenient at this time in my life nor are the symptoms that bad. Does anyone have any experience of using vaginal weights or vaginal electro exercisers and how effective they are? Are they approriate for some-one with vaginal prolapse? Where do I find a reputable supplier?

    I had my son 6 months ago, seven months ago I noticed a bulge in my vagina ( like a urinary prolapse) it is very large and cover half of the opening. 5months ago it happened to my Bum ( rectal prolapse) and n more recently I noticed my cervix has come right down and I need only to put my finger in upto my first knuckle. I only feel it all drop down when stood or sat on the toilet but when lay down it seems to be lessened. Does this mean I have a prolapse or not? My doctor says not I told her I can feel it now I'm stood up be she just said they only examine when lay flat. Can a prolapsed also only affect some people when stood or sat, or am I just imagining my insides changing?

    I'm pretty sure I have a slight prolapse because I can see a ball of flesh protruding from my vagina and feel it when I showering. It also has a very funky odor to it, almost like BO from an armpit... Is anyone else experiencing a foul odor from their prolapse or could this be something unrelated?

    i am 32 and just went for my smear, i have been having trouble with leakage , it happens all day long and ive had it happening for about a year now, my doctor says i have a prolapse , what is the best option to right this? i am constantly changing my underware and am very concious and uncomfortable around people in case i start to smell, even though i use feminine hygine products .

    If you have a visible bulge then it is possible that you have a Grade 2 prolapse. Here is some more info about prolapse and treatment options http://pelvichealthphysio.blogspot.ca/2013/10/pelvic-organ-prolapse-part-1.html

    Hi Rosa, it is possible that you have an early stage prolapse. Here is some more info on prolapse and treatment options http://pelvichealthphysio.blogspot.ca/2013/10/pelvic-organ-prolapse-part-1.html

    Some Dr's find it difficult to diagnose a prolapse. The best way is to bear down for 8 seconds and observe, however it still may not be as obvious lying down as it is when you are sitting or standing up and gravity is acting downwards. A pelvic health physio can diagnose prolapse and help with painful sex. Here are some tips to start managing your prolapse immediately http://pelvichealthphysio.blogspot.ca/2013/10/pelvic-organ-prolapse-part-1.html

    Hi Carol, this does sound like a prolapse of your uterus. Your cervix should be sitting relatively high. Here is some more info about prolapse and options for management http://pelvichealthphysio.blogspot.ca/2013/10/pelvic-organ-prolapse-part-1.html

    Your consultant should discuss the procedure with you, I had prolapse surgery the end of last year and it was all done vaginally.

    Pelvic organ prolapse is the most common women’s health disorder of the developed world. It is estimated that more than half of all women who have given birth experience some level of prolapse. For the past century radical pelvic surgery has been the only conventional treatment for prolapse. Yet, these conditions are not cured by surgery, but often traded for chronic pain, bowel and bladder dysfunction, sexual loss, and emotional devastation. Women the world over are stabilising and reversing their symptoms naturally. learn to live well with prolapse - www.wholewoman.com Also, search on Youtube for Christine Kent's 'first aid for prolapse'.

    you mentioned something is in the way, have you had an examination for a prolapse ? prolapse can happen at an age even from simple constipation and it is only now you are aware of a physical obstruction. the other comments on here about your bone and seeing orthapeedic doctor is also good suggestion. but also get looked at for prolapse as this could be another problem you have as a prolapse bladder or womb or retum has this sensation. Am coming down on the side of others comments that this is nothing to do with vaginismus as the symptoms you mention are not as clear cut as vaginismus because you can have intercourse but are aware of a bone or something internal physically being in the way. agree with others if it is the pelvic or pubic bone which you say it is you need to speak to someone specialising in bones because I think you may have just homed in on vaginismus and be way off base. you need to get 4 opinions re 1= the bone, 3 = prolapse possibilities.

    Thank you for your help. I do appreciate the advice. I don’t think it is a prolapse as I feel no different from normal and I have no issues with tampons or even the vagiwave. When we are trying to have sex and I feel myself it is like the bone is blocking any flexibility at the front, but pushing down or left and right is really really tight. My boyfriend can fit a finger, maybe two in sideways, but vertical the bone is there and the skin is extremely tight at the bottom around the entrance and there is no give. It’s like the pubic bone is there, but if I wasn’t tight, there wouldn’t be an issue. When we were having sex I can’t say it was comfortable, but nothing like this. It was possible at least. As you turn your fingers from horizontal to vertical, just inside the entrance, one finger will push against the bone, the other into a tight area of skin and then it’s ouch! I hope that maybe describes it better. I’m sorry if I’m vague but it’s hard to describe.

    Since January 2011 I have read hundreds of articles from medical websites on various prolapse, either being uterine, cystocele, rectocele etc.. what I found is lots of information on why the prolapse happens, types of prolapse, kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, no heavy lifting etc. Since there are over 250 surgical procedures for prolapse some are done vaginally either with or without mesh, some are done through incisions, well the list is endless, what the doctors are not telling us is the actual success rate as with so many horror stories that surgery can fix a prolapse it can also introduce other issues that may require further surgery and or the operations may not be successful - Thousands of women have prolapse it is hidden from others, it is not being discussed, there is no awareness, no support prolapse groups or websites. GP's do not have the time to go through potential prolapse with women that started menopause or gone through menopause cause that is the danger zone when prolapse is likely to happen. Surgeons are too keen to go down the surgery route almost straight away, unless proper examinations including MRI scanning of the pelvic anatomy is done to determine what caused the prolapse to ensure there is nothing cynical happening and to treat each woman with prolapse individually fully explaining what is going on with her body, the risks of surgery and success rate must be discussed. Surgery is not the godsend fix that many are singing about - prolapse can return - Would be very constructive to hear from those women who underwent prolapse surgery either successful or not.. lets open up this hidden medical topic..

    In 2009 i had a TVT repair done, initially it worked and then a year later i felt wrong down there and had started leaking again, i went back to GP and was told that i have a front vaginal wall prolapse and the TVT was not working as it could of possible slipped. i then underwent surgery again in Nov 2010, another 6 weeks of work only for me to feel something go wrong on Boxing day. Back to hospital who then confirmed that the Urethra was ahyper mobile hence pain in intercourse and now my back wall had gone and pulled front down with it. so more surgery is pending. Am constantly uncomfortable and intercourse hurts, cannot use tampax anymore as it irritates. so am hoping that this time they stitch me up alot better than before an after 3 attempts it could be 3rd time lucky.and yet another bout of recovery. main cause of this is overweight and mother of twins.

    I have got a prolapse bladder and a prolapse bowel when I go to number 2s it comes out like a load of tiny stones is this normal with a prolapse bowel

    Dear Jenny,do you open your bowels every day?Are you on any regular strong painkillers?or medications as some meds have the tendency to constipate you. Also check your diet.A well balanced diet will help. I think what you can do at present is to increase your fluid intake, add fruits like melons, and all the berries which are high in water and soluble fibre. If this does not help, speak to your GP.

    Hi, I'm a 41 year old mother of two, diagnosed with a prolapse bladder following the birth of my second son when I was 35. I've found the website www.wholewoman.com very useful. It gives advice and support to women of all ages with prolapse, and suggests changing posture to help to stabilise prolapse, rather than choosing surgery. I've found it to be very useful and informative. Best of luck!

    Hi ever since i have been 3 i have got bladder infections atlease a couple times a year. i stopped getting them from the age of 11 and then when i started having sex they started up again . When i split up with my partner the infections stopped again. When i got a new partner i started getting the infections again and i get an infection everytime i have sex. I have also always got pain deep inside during sex as if its pushing against something. i would really apreciate it if someone could help as i can not take much more of it.

    Hi Nikki i've been having the exact same problems and I've never thought twice about till the last time I had sex as i was almost in tears! followed by a urine infection. Ive been having frequent urine infections since I was very young aswell. Everything that i've read about prolapse seems to point to causes like having children etc, which I havn't so im a bit confused! Have you been to the docs?

    It is unlikely you will be suffering from a prolapse at such a young age. The sooner anyone with a possible prolapse sees their gp (or request to see a female dr if you are embarrassed), the sooner you can be referred to a specialist womens health physiotherapist for assessment and prescription of pelvic floor exercises to help reduce the symptoms of prolapse and prevent it worsening. Go on, be brave!

    I have a prolapse and today I just went and finally got it checked out. After the birth of my don two years ago I figured my bladder weakness would go away and it hasn't. I too have only had one smear and was due a second one in 2012 but never did do today I got done and I was petrified but he said my prolapse isn't bad and can be helped eith pyso therapy. ..so yes u can get a smear with a prolapse. All the best

    Hi ya! Sorry to hear you're suffering without given reason by your gp. I have recently been diagnosed with pelvic prolapse, there are different types, 1 called cystocele-a prolapse of the bladder + another called urethrocele-a prolapse of the urethra these can cause the need to pass urine often (day + night), stress incontinence, urgency to urinate and a feeling you have not emptied properly. Hope this is useful x

    Hi I am suffering from a bladder and uterus prolapse ( I paid privately to see a gynie consultant last week because i am suffering pain in my lower back, tummy and pressure on my bladder.) He has agreed to see me in 4 weeks on the nhs but didnt discuss treatment with me at all as hewants to perform a laparoscopy checking for endemetriosis as he sasys the prolapse shouldntcause this pain. Does anyone know if this is definitely right as i feel the prolapse IS the cause of my pain and would like to know how the pain could be treated or could the prolapse not b causing this pain and have i not found te cause of my pain yet? i'm feeling very worried and stressed that my pain is bothering me so much and that ive been like this for 2 months and cant seem to get any help. Thanks

    I have the same problem except I have a prolapse. I am 34 with no kids. I want one child so bad but this prolapse is scary. I'm really not interested in sex because of some pain and I just don't enjoy sex with pain I don't tell my husband about. Now my husband is tired of being married to me because I'm not interested in sex. When we have sex he ask for it. I really try to go to him but he says I'm not into it. He doesn't understand this prolapse is so painful it's falling out.

    For anyone suffering with prolapse, do not opt for surgery until you've searched on You Tube for pelvic organ prolapse, Christine Kent explains her first aid for prolapse. The website offers a wealth of information and support for those seeking alternative solutions to surgery, including adjusting to a new, more feminine posture in order to create a slight lumber curve which supports the pelvic organs over the pelvic bone. - THIS REALLY WORKS, I've had a rectocele for over 10 years, 6 months into practising wholewoman posture, has vastly improved my once peeking prolapse without resorting to surgery!

    Hi, I was diagnosed with a bladder prolapse in Oct 2012 by my doctor and like you I was afraid everything inside of me was going to fall out. I did some research regards prolapses on the net and there is a device called Kegel8 which can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and has various programmes for bladder problems including a prolapse setting (I use the Ultra Plus). I have used the machine (which comes with a easy to insert probe which goes into the vagina) for a month now and have found it very effective for 'tightening up' the pelvic floor muscles which should help the prolapse not get any worse and improve the prolapse I have, also my confidence has come back and I again feel more in control of my life. If your doctor has diagnosed you with a prolapse or bladder problem you do not pay VAT! The Kegel8 is not a 'gimmick' and my doctor also recommended it. If you type Kegel8 into your search bar you can read about it on their web page for yourself, also the customer service women are excellent, friendly and use the device themselves, so ask them for advice for the right one for you if you wish. Do not let your prolapse take over your life, at 62 you still have a full life ahead of you!!!!
