Yes: It's not uncommon to have lower abdominal and back pain and discomfort with vaginal prolapse. This usually worsens as the day progresses and the tissues herniated more into the vagina, much like herniated tissue in other parts of the body cause discomfort at times. See a Urogynecologist for an evaluation.
