Hi, I'm a 45 year old mother of two adult daughters. Just yesterday I discovered I had something bulging from my vagina which was completely freaky. After putting several things together in my head and doing some research, I'm certain I have a prolapsed uterus. It's mild to moderate with no problems urinating or having bowel movements...yet. I believe I aggravated this condition about a week ago by straining WAY to hard to have a bowel movement at work. I was in a hurry...wish I hadn't done that. Anyway, now I wonder if the exercises will do anything at all and if I should look forward to having problems with my periods. I have already decided not to attempt sexual intercourse and my hubby is very supportive and sweet. I have made an appointment with the local clinic to get checked out, but since we are very rural, the Doc. is only in town once a month so I will have to wait awhile for that. Since this is very new to me, I'm very emotional and scared. I have contacted my boss at work and told her about my problem since I'm a cashier and lifting is an every day occurrence. She was very sweet and told me I don't have to lift heavy objects and if my problems get worse, she will try and place me in a different job.
What will my periods be like? Also, would it help to have orgasms without sexual intercourse if I'm using a back massager not inserted?
Right now I just feel fullness and I'm achy because I've been doing exercises. I have had a little bladder leaking, but nothing serious and no problems with bowel movements. A little low back pain as well.
Thanks in advance for any support and answers you can give me. I didn't know where else to turn.
