i have been reading a old thread on here about prolapse and am now very worried!! every1 has been saying how painfull sex is with a prolapse and i was worried about not being able to have another child if my womb is in the rong place??? tho other people had said they had a prolapse after their 1st and then it got worse with the next child? :S so im abit confused, did they just suffer through the pain?? or is it not allways painfull. i am singal as my babys father left us a few months ago so obviously im very worried bout what sex is going to be like when i get a new partner!!

  • Hi, I know it has been a very long time since you posted your question but I thought maybe I can be of some help. I am 36 yrs old. I was a completely healthy woman at 32 yrs old when I was pregnant with my 1st child who is now my 4 yr. old daughter. The entire pregnancy went fine until labor. My (Ex-doctor) was in a terriable rush after my baby came out & said he snipped a couple things (ligaments) under his breath but would not repeat himself when I questioned him. To my understanding through my own research, I believe during stiching he snipped 2 ligaments. These hold your uterus up in your vagina. Anyhow, 6 weeks after delivery my cervix slipped out of my vagina during a shower & has never gone back in. My cervix is out an average 2 to 3 inches all day long everyday of my life. This has been for 4 years now. You can do all the pelvic exercises and therapy you want, it is a waste of time ( I did 6 months of very expensive therapy 4 days a week). Once it slips out it's not going to stay in for longer than a few seconds if you push it back in. Anyhow, I can have sex and have no pain at all. I went through another pregnancy after that with my 2nd daughter, that went full term with no bed rest at the beginning or the end. The cervix did not go back into my vagina until my 17th week of pregancy though. You just need to be causcious at the beginning. My labor & delivery went super fast so your doctor needs to be ready. I was induced for both preganacies, especially the 2nd one though, due to the prolapsed uterus. The doctor knew she would come out fast. Extra nurses were in place incase there were any delivery complications, but there was not. Everything went very smooth. I only pushed 1x and the baby was out & I didn't even push hard. I was in labor, pushed delivered & stiched in 15 minutes. My prolapse is not any worse then it was after the 1st baby. I am starting to get a lil' bit of discolored discharge daily since the 2nd delivery, but my doctor believes this is because the prolapse is over 4 yrs old now & just gets a little irritaion from time to time. I have a lil' bit more pain right before my period and the 1st day or so of my period. Not a lot though, just a little. Very tolerable withour pain relievers. If I were you I would keep your prolapse & try for another pregancy. I live in Ohio. If your anywhere near here I'd be happy to share my Doctors name with you. He is absolutely EXCELLENT. He is a doctor I started seeing after the 1st pregancy. I hope this has helped in some way.
