Prolapsed Bladder In Children
Postmenopause and no children. I have bladder prolapse and given estrace cream. How fast is progression? Afraid it will drop out one day w/o warning.
Not so fast: The prolapse is a gradual process. Your bladder will not fall out without warning. You may try pelvic floor exercises, though if prolapse has occurred, the exercises may not help.

Many options: The best option depends on the severity of the prolapse. Also, age and medical problems can affect choices, as patients with serious medical issues may not tolerate surgery.

Best to see a urologist specializing in female urology. ...Read more

I have a very prolapsed bladder. Today, after no intercourse, I had a tiny blood at my vaginal opening, not in my urine. Is this serious. ?
Ab vaginal bleeding: I gather that your question is whether a tiny bit of vaginal bleeding is serious. That depends on your age, you hormonal cycle, and where exactly does the blood come from. Bladder bleeding will show up in your urine, but could be microscopic. In the vaginal opening, someone with training needs to look up there to sort out exactly where it's coming from to answer your quesiton properly. ...Read more
