I'm wondering if u can give birth with a prolapse cervix can u still dilate and everything?

Yes: Having a prolapsed uterus will not affect one’s ability to dilate while in labor. If you feel you have uterine prolapse make sure your obgyn is aware and has done an exam to confirm it. Depending on the obgyn’s findings there may be ways to fix it before or after pregnancy. ...Read more

Could a young woman with no kids nor pregnancies have a prolapsed bladder?

Could a young woman with no kids nor pregnancies have a prolapsed bladder?

Possible: It is possible, but not overly likely - you should have a thorough exam if you are concerned. If you have not had an exam then I wonder why you are concerned over this - symptoms of urinary bladder prolapse may include recurrent bladder infections, pressure in the pelvic region and even prolapsed tissue into the vaginal opening - it should be checked. ...Read more

Never had kids but need hysterectomy. If I keep my cervix does that help to provide support so that I don't get prolapse?

Possibly: There is some evidence that keeping the cervix might have some benefits in preventing prolapse in some patients. Since you have never been pregnant your risk of prolapse is low. You will need to discuss your specific case with your surgeon. ...Read more

I'm in my early stages of pregnancy with my 5th child, but I feel like I have prolapsed, do I need to seek help?

I'm in my early stages of pregnancy with my 5th child, but I feel like I have prolapsed, do I need to seek help?

Yes: Increased progesterone, early in pregnancy can cause, in very rare cases, uterine prolapse. Combined with 4 deliveries, it certainly could happen. Your uterus will grow out of your pelvis as your pregnancy progresses, and the problem will resolve. Until then you might need a pessary to lift the uterus up so it doesn't get stuck low down as it grows. ...Read more

Common 2 feel ur own cervix or uncommon? I doubt prolapse, what am I feeling if not cervix? Found 2 bumps on what I thought was my cervix, if vaginal tumors wouldn't recent colonoscopy catch this?

Common 2 feel ur own cervix or uncommon? I doubt prolapse, what am I feeling if not cervix? Found 2 bumps on what I thought was my cervix, if vaginal tumors wouldn't recent colonoscopy catch this?

Probably normal: It is possible to feel your cervix, even without prolapse. If you've had vaginal deliveries, that will change the shape of your cervix. Also, you can have benign mucous cysts, called nabothian cysts, on the cervix. If you've recently had a colposcopy then whatever your feeling is likely benign. Hope this helps. ...Read more

What to do if I noticed a part of my cervix neck is swollen into my vaginal cavity, is it a prolapse?

What to do if I noticed a part of my cervix neck is swollen into my vaginal cavity, is it a prolapse?

Likely Yes: Prolapse is relative to the degree or extent of the falling of or failure of support for the pelvic organs. Feeling the cervix low down into the cervical cavity is suggestive of early to mid level prolapse. This is common after vagginal delivery and is more pronounced with strain or heavy lifting. Check with your doctor or make an appointment with your gyno who can easily assess. ...Read more
