    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.

    I am a 16 year old girl, and I am really worried about having sex due to the fact that I fear that I have Vaginal Prolapse. I have never been able to use tampons as it feels as if they cannot go in. I have checked to see if there is a hole, and it seems like there is a kind of 'wall' that is stopping the tampons going in. I was quite overweight when I was younger, and on top of this I had two urinary infections which caused the vaginal lips to fuse slightly, and the doctor had to rip them apart (for want of a better explanation). I am really worried that the walls have collapsed, and this has had a very negative on my self-esteem as I feel like there is something wrong with me. Do I have Vaginal Prolapse? Or is ti something I should visit my GP about, although I am scared and embarrassed?

    im feeling pretty depressed about myself at the moment. im only 21 and have piles and i have just checked myself and now think i have a vaginal prolapse. I have going to my doctors as I feel they dont care. My dad has chrons disease and i have mentioned this several times but they seem to keep dismissing it. my very first visit when i began to get pains in my stomach and under my ribs i was sent for an ultrasound on my aorta. i retuned a few months later realising when i went to the loo it felt weird, and was told i have piles. I have changed my diet and i am using cream, my piles are just starting to shrink, but i still get pains when i need to go and think i have a vaginal prolapse. i really need some help please.

    This sounds very much like my symptoms, I had two large babies a couple of years apart and after the second birth when I tried to do the pelvic floor exercises I couldn't feel a thing, I more or less gave up with them. A year on and I noticed a small red ball protruding at the back end of my vagina, I could feel it when wiping myself and could sort of push it back in. I also would leak wee and often feel an urgency like I was going to wet myself. I went to the dr who said it was a vaginal prolapse and the red ball was my bladder. I got referred to a gynaecologist who said operating was an option but as so young to have this complaint (35) they'd like to try some special physio first. I ended up having 6 months of gynae physio where I was taught to do the pelvic floor exercises properly (I'd been doing them incorrectly anyway!!) and learnt about how to change the habits of my bladder and have had to stop doing some exercises like running and any abdominal exercise which in turn have all helped. I'm still working on strengthening my pelvic floor but don't have now what's considered a prolapse so no more physio. The waiting list on the NHS for my area was 18 months, I enquired about private treatment and after the gynaecologist consultation the physio was £40 per session, it cost in total about £450. If you can afford it it's worth looking into. Hope this is of help, definitely speak to your gp and find out what options and help are available x

    i am 49 and had a vaginal hysterectomy 8 years ago due to endometriosis. I appear to have a vaginal prolapse which is like a pink ball that can be pushed back in. Is this possible after a hysterectomy?

    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.

    Hiya, i haven't had sex yet as i am waiting for the right person but for the last 2 years i have been having pains in my vagina. At times i can barely stand up witb the pain. I also found like a lump in my vagina too, to me it does sound like a vaginal prolapse. 2 and a half years ago, i was badly constipated and i wasjust wondering if i could get a prolapse because of the pressure been put on? I am very self concious, not a bit of confidence in me at all. I have a boyfriend ansfor the last 6 months and we still haven't done anything because i am so embarrassedof my problem! I do want to be able to have kids later on in life. Plwase help, I'm pritty scared. Thanks!

    i have the same exact thing although i don't think its the g-spot

    Vaginal prolapse is not identical in every woman and its causes can be varied. Seek medical attention if you think you are suffering from vaginal prolapse.

    I'm 17 and a virgin, is it possible to have a vaginal prolapse without ever having children and being a teenager, as i think i have a prolapse. The vaginal walls seem to be pushing outwards, and is uncomfortable and dry/ itchy, and using a tampon is sometimes difficult, but i feel so embarrassed about it.

    I have had a vaginal prolapse for nine years and it really is uncomfortable now but I have been offered exercise and oestrogen cream or a pessary, but I ended up not using the hormonal cream as I worry about additional creams in the form of replacement hormone. I started off doing the exercises but to be honest don't do them regularly as I find them difficult to incorporate into my daily life as there are so many repeats necessary. I was advised against surgery as it is not necessarily a long term solution as you can prolapse again. I can't see how a hysterectomy can help with a vaginal prolapse as we are talking about the walls of the vagina. A uterus prolapse I can see the sense in that in a way. I think I may opt for the pessary though I always said I would not have that but the prolapse is ever present now and never really goes back in unless I am lying down in bed. To my way of thinking surgery is the very last option because of the risk of post-op infection and the risk of catching viruses whilst in hospital. I would give surgery a serious thought before going ahead.

    Im soo worried that i may have a vaginal prolapse. I have had sex with two people and im 17. I became itchy around my vaginal area and so i thought i would check it out. I have suffered from constipation before and so the strainging i think has caused my vagina to prolapse a little. I placed a finger inside my vagina and as i squeaze out my vagina walls push out aswell and its worrying me that they might be falling(i.e prolapsing) . im so worried because i want to have children one day. :S

    I have a minor vaginal prolapse. Can I still go to the gym & go on 3 mile walks or is this out of the question now? Does anyone else still exercise with a prolapse?

    I have just undergone a hysterectomy and front wall vaginal and pelvic floor repair BUT they said that I couldnt have a vaginal back wall repair due to the fact that I was still sexually active so still have a prolapse which bulges and is noticable. Would a Kegel8 Ultra Plus help with this kind of prolapse? As it has only been three weeks since my operation I would like to use one now rather than later if this indeed will help tighten the back wall. Thank you

    Yes it will help, with a prolapse you must exercise in the morning before you get up, this way your bits have not had time to come down (due to gravity). I have used my Kegel8 ultra for about 7 months now (since the first EB programme) and I am noticing a real difference. I didn't want surgery, but I certainly didn't want my prolapse to get any worse. The heaviness has gone away, together with the discomfort, I also changed my posture and tackled my constipation - major major problems with a weak pelvic floor. I found the advice line at kegel8 very helpful, but there is no quick fix, but I wish you luck because mine is so improved, Well done to the EB programme for tackling such difficult issues, I am sure some people watch to look at the genitalia on show, but my friends are now talking about it and many just didn't know about prolapse and how horrible it is - so I think this has been really helpful for a lot of women.

    Hi all, I am 44, have a vaginal prolapse and am trying desperately to lose weight so that I can have surgery. I wondered if anyone knows if using one of the pelvic floor devices featured on the show would still work for me despite the prolapse? Thanks, Heather.

    I have recently ecome aware of what I believe is a vaginal prolapse. I have a feeling of heaviness and am able to feel something in my vagina. When I looked into the mirror to inspect I found a bulging area inside the vagina and slight bulging on the outside, slightly more on one side than the other, although the prolapse itself does not buldge outside the vagina and vaginal tissue remains clearly visible. I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and planning a home birth. Will this interfer with my delivery?

    I had a baby 3months ago and I've been advised that I have a slight bladder prolapse. Since then I have checked my vagina and there seems to be more lumps towards the back. Is it possible to feel your stools through your vaginal wall, as I'm sure that's what I am feeling. Does this mean I have a rectal prolapse now?

    I found this video on vaginal prolapse so informative. I noticed a bulging about an 1 1/2 inches up into my vagina when I stand and was scared it was something very serious. I thought it was my uterus falling. After reviewing the Internet, I came upon your Web Site and noticed other women with the same problem. I have vaginal prolapse! It is milder than those in the video and I have begun the kegel exercises which have helped so much. I also stopped doing crunches. I really had no idea about my condition. My GYN never mentioned it. I guess it is not bad enough yet. I have an appointment soon and I am going to ask her about it. Thank you SO much for this Web Site!`

    Hi all Saw the programme the other night about the lady with vaginal and rectal prolapse. I too have a diagnosed vaginal prolapse after having a forceps delivery a year ago. After many trips to the doctors being told "it was normal and would rectify itself" they eventually refrred me to a gynaecologist who diagnosed the prolapse. I've been seeing a urotherapist who's basically against the surgery saying it only has a shelf life of 10 years and would need to be repeated quite a few times as i'm in my late 30's. She suggested pelvic floor excercises - which have done no good as i have absolutely no muscle tone downstairs. I'm having no joy with this department and have asked to be referred back to the gynaecologist as i would like to feel "normal" again and resume relations with my partner, who has been very very patient! To me, 10 years is a very long time and it is only a "maybe" that it would need to be repeated!

    I am 40 weeks pregnant and worried that I have a vaginal prolapse, which I have only just noticed. Will this cause a problem or get worse if I give birth naturally? Could this then result in me needing surgery to correct the prolapse and if so, would a C-section be a safer option?

    I'm 55 years old and have been diagnosed with grade 2 vaginal prolapse. On watching the video related to this the patient had her vaginal walls tightened with complete success. I realise the patient was younger than me but I can't understand why my gynaecologist has recommended a vaginal hysterectomy. If I have to have this done, will I find sex interesting again?

    Thank you for your comment, Becky! I had my third baby 2 years ago and developed an anterior vaginal prolapse while pregnant. It has been totally fine until recently. I have been doing heavy weightlifting at the gym for 2 years with no problems until now. My vagina doesn't look any worse (and is not as bad as the pictures above, but I can see some prolapsed vaginal wall), it just feels full. I have started pelvic floor exercises daily (wasn't doing them before). How long did it take you with the exercises before your prolapse got better? I don't want to stop powerlifting and I also ordered a myofascial release tool that may help with my tight PF muscles. Any advice?

    im 30 yrs old and have a 2nd degree vaginal prolapse,over the yrs iv started gaining weight,could the prolapse be the reason for this as iv always bin under weight even after having 2 children
