I have had a mild bladder prolapse for a few years now, and have been able to mostly keep it under control. I believe that muscles in the pelvic area can weaken in menopause due to lack of oestrogen and collagen - this is what I have read. Recently I've experienced some quite bad lumbar back pain, and am getting worried that the prolapse may be getting worse. I get quite bloated sometimes even though I dont eat much, and my diet is very healthy - I'm very strict on that.
I am in menopause now. I was on HRT but came of it as I didnt like some of the side effects, but maybe its a better idea to be on it if lowered oestrogen levels are a problem.
I am seeing the Dr for an examination next week. I did have a check for ovarian cancer just over a year ago, and everything was fine. I was feeling better off the HRT but now I'm not sure what to do.
