prolapsed uterus

clairdo2October 14, 2012

I think I have a prolapsed uterus. I feel something when i go to bathroom ,it feels like something coming out. I coulnt get to see the doctor but his nurse told me if i have no pain and no infections i should just leave it. Does anyone here have that problem and does it ever go away by itself?

Go to the doctor. It will not go away by itself and will get worse. If the doctor doesn't want to treat it I would get a second opinion. I had it and had surgery and everything is fine. Recovery from surgery was quick.

start doing lots of Kegel exercises. There are also kegel weights that can be used. And a pessary device can be placed in to help push it back up.

As a retired RN who worked for a couple of gynecologists....you need to be seen.
There are things that could be done.....insertion of a pessary might do the trick and it is not invasive.
Also, you could be at risk for getting an infection.
I know no woman likes to have a pelvic exam but it is necessary. Let the doc decide if something needs to be done, not a nurse who hasn't examined you.

What does the nurse mean just leave it?? I had it and found it very uncomfortable~~I had a Hysterectomy (sp) My dr tried to fit me with a pessary it just kept falling out once it shot clear out LOL!! For years I suffered with this for no reason, my Dr said alot of women have it no big deal, I got a new GYN that took one look at me and said no way, having surgery was the best thing for me~~~as Carol said you need to see and dr and be informed of your options not just leave it.

Why are you accepting an over the phone diagnosis and no need for treatment from a nurse?
Is this a GP doctor's office ?

It could also be your bladder. I'm told some cases resolve spontaneously, but it's highly unlikely.

Here's a good message board devoted to prolapse.
