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 have a grade 2-3 bladder prolapse and a stage 1 bowel prolapse. I am due a smear test, will the nurse be able to do a smear with my prolapse's?
hi im having my 1st op next week for my prolapsed bowel i also have a prolaped vagin. had my smear last week it was fine , just dont let them rush it.
I have sex before the doctor prescrib me as bladder prolapse. Doing sex in 3 weeks of delivery of baby that's makes bladder prolapse. Tied wrapping stomach after deliary to bring stomach in normal size that's makes bladder prolapse but my stomach is same as big like I'm pregnant I used to carry baby in car seat after 2weeks of delivery makes bladder prolapse or working in kitchen after delivery makes bladder prolapse please!!! Please!!! Please!!! Te me
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 caused by a lot of coughing I'm 34 with 2 children and I'm funding it very uncomfortable, my question is will the prolapse improve when my cough goes or will I need to see my gp about getting referred?
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?
hi i have a bladder prolapse and have stated to use kegel8 electric impulse machine as i found doing pelvic floor exercises difficult. i have also started to do posture exercises from a vidio by katie bowman in america and have found these helpful it is still early days but i am hoping i will be able to manage with out an opperation i am not sure about sex as my partner left when he found out i had a prolapse.
Hi, I have just been told I have a Vault prolapse,with the bladder prolapse as well, could you please tell me if a vegel8 plus would help me with this problem,I am being transfered to see another consultant but in the mean time was wondering if useing this machine would help. Thankyou
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?
