I strained my muscles trying to pass gas and a large amount of urine came out of my vagina - is this a sure symptom of prolapse?

Prolapse: I am wondering if you hadn't use the bathroom for a number of hours and your bladder was just very full. Compared to the male, the female urethra is much shorter, but has to control a similar bladder volume. The strain you mentioned was just too much and made your bladder overflow. ...Read more

Will a anterior repair of vagina, actually make the vagina bigger? As you are lifting the prolapse?

Will a anterior repair of vagina, actually make the vagina bigger? As you are lifting the prolapse?

No: In an anterior repair the tissue that normally supports the bladder/anterior wall of the vagina is pulled back in to the midline to rebuild the support. Since tissue that has stretched out is brought in from the sides, it does not make the vagina bigger. If anything, it makes it smaller. Hope this helps. ...Read more

For prolapse when they say "feel a bulge" at end of day is it meaning feeling it outside the vagina?

Maybe: Vaginal prolapse can cause feelings of pressure and fullness before the bulge comes outside the vagina. If you have prolapse, it's usually worse at the end of the day because gravity and straining, etc. may put downward pressure in the herniated areas (bladder bulging is the most common), resulting in the fullness and aching that may occur. See a urogynecologic specialist for and evaluation. ...Read more

Since having my third baby a year ago yesterday, can't wear tampons and looking at my vagina all i see is mass of tissue. Very heavy. Prolapse?

Gynecology: I would also worry about cervical cancer. The worst day of my career was doing a pap smear on a patient of mine who had avoided her gyn care for a year after a baby. There was tissue that did not belong there. So, yes, prolapse is possible. But so is cancer. Please get to your gynecologist urgently. ...Read more
