I have a uterine prolapse. I can feel my cervix in my vaginal entrance when I walk. It's horrible & painful, & I'm terrified it'll get worse. I'm almost 4wks PP, my GP said to hold off on anything until my 6wk checkup (which is at 7wks because the Drs are apparently booked up..) He told me to do pelvic floor exercises and lots of walking.. Except walking makes it worse, so I feel like he didn't really listen.

When I lie down, my cervix goes to about 3cm deep inside me, and then obviously drops when I stand up.

I've asked for a referral to physio & if it's the same at my checkup then I'll ask to see a specialist. After everything I've been through, this will be my only baby.

But, did anyone suffer with vaginal wall prolapse after giving birth, and if so what did you do about it?

I wanted to update about myself. I am 12 weeks pp tomorrow and have noticed definite improvement in this last week! It does take time. 6 weeks pp is only a short amount of time don't expect to be back to normal then because you'll panic if you're not like me. Give yourself at least 4 months! X

I wouldn't worry too much this early, it can take a lot longer than 6 weeks for everything to go back to normal. Not saying there's definitely no problem but mention it at your 6 week check and go from there

I noticed a bladder prolapse whilst I was pregnant (about 34 weeks) with no.2. It doesn't bother me very often though occasionally I feel slightly uncomfortable down there for a few minutes when walking etc. this is rare though. my OB told me that it is very very common and not to worry about it too much. Apparently the surgery is way worse than just doing physio and I saw on BBC news that people were suing for the side effects of corrective surgery which are awful.

I didn't mention it at my check up today cos I felt a bit rushed so I'm just gonna see how things go. It feels a little better, I suppose. But it's def not back to normal, I had a feel earlier today in the shower and it's all squishy inside but not painful when I push on it.. (Sorry, tmi) haha

I'll give it another month before talking to a doctor if I've no improvement

Here's a link to the thing I mentioned about lawsuits women are bringing for the mesh surgeries in prolapse cases:

So I think I have this. At my 5 week check up I was all clear but I noticed today at 8 weeks me cervix is right at the entrance. If I walk a lot it may come out a cm or two. I'm freaking out. I'm calling dr tomorrow but if I didn't have anything but now suddenly do 2 months pp its most likely a prolapse right?

I found pelvic floor exercises really helped with mine. Definitely still get in touch with your gp, but get on those exercises while you wait! x
