Looking back, the reason for my vaginal prolapse was obvious, but I tend to ignore what I can't explain until it takes over. Four babies in 5 years, a hysterectomy 15 years ago, no estrogen, about two years ago hair stopped growing under my arms, frequent constipation, incontinence, and pain when standing or walking very long. I didn't see a doctor until I saw a golf ball size mound of flesh where it shouldn't have been.

My symptoms of vaginal prolapse included urinary incontinence and a feeling of everything falling out when I went to the bathroom. Sometimes I would have shocking pain while having a bowel movement. Intercourse was also very painful. It felt like he was hitting a wall or my ovaries. It wasn't very comfortable at all.

I have had every symptom listed for vaginal prolapse. I had UTI (urinary tract infection) after UTI, pain, cramping and constipation. Not really one for doctor's visits, I do have my annual exam and went to my doctor, Planned Parenthood and the emergency room. So far, they just can't seem to work out what the problem is. The only thing anyone has said (the obstetrician) is that lovely word, prolapse.

With my vaginal prolapse, it protrudes whenever I am walking around, and do a lot bending and stooping or lifting. However, I wind up having back pain, and one morning I tried to stand up straight and couldn't because it felt like all my (hamstrings) or muscles were pulling in my lower back of upper legs and hips connecting to my back. I had to stretch and sit and do a little walking in the house (bent over) before it cleared up.

I just found out I have vaginal prolapse. I am at a loss as to what caused it. I have a 3 year old, by any means it was an easy birth and normal sized baby, 7 pounds. My partner is well-endowed and we have a healthy sex life. My doctor recommends Kegel exercises 10 times a day and I have to go back in a month to see if any improvement; fingers crossed.

Just recently discovered I have a stage three uterine prolapse which seems to have happened rather suddenly. I had a baby via vaginal birth with no drugs when I was 17. I'm now 29 and facing a hysterectomy. I'm struggling with this and feel as though I'm freakishly young to be going through this.

I am looking for suggestions on how to get relief from surgery to repair my vaginal prolapse. It feels like the 'baby' is going to fall out every time I do any activity that involves standing which means I can't exercise.

I've had dryness, feeling of pressure below, and I've been urinating more. I just found out that I have this and I also have a cervical prolapse (now that I have insurance).
