I had a three way vaginal prolapse and surgery was the only option. I experienced pressure, protrusion, problems urinating and eliminating and urinary tract infections every 3 to 4 months for about 2 years. I had also been experiencing unexplained leg and foot pain, for about 6 months, prior to surgery, which have all gone away since the surgery.

I have had no treatment yet, only found out today for certain that I have vaginal prolapse. I have to go back to the general physician for examination to determine exactly which kind, but all muscles around my cervix are loose. I found this purely looking for advice. I am 32 years old and my youngest is now 2 and a half. I knew something wasn't right but honestly had no idea. I've read through a lot of these and their comments and it's given me a lot of hope and reassurance, huge thank you.

I have had no treatment yet for vaginal prolapse, I just feel pressure. I knew long ago it felt like something just fell down from inside. I would not dream of having sex, it protrudes outward, feels like a tampon half way in. Weird. Thank you for all the information and sharing. I will now seek a doctor. I have twice before, but they missed it. Never asked me to sit up, and you cannot tell when lying down. I feel when I need bowel movements, it protrudes even more, and pressure is forcing it downward. Once done, I feel it goes back up some. Oh lucky me, 6I years old. Welcome to the golden years!

After examining me, my gynecologist said I have vaginal wall prolapse and that no treatment was necessary. After reading a lot about this condition, I am concerned with the no treatment plan. As there is visible tissue seen in the vaginal opening seems to me it won't go away or get better with no treatment.

I had a vaginal prolapse due to bowels pushing outward. I had surgery to fix the problem and doctors found a 12 cm cyst between the vaginal wall and bowels. Surgery was the only option.
