      No I didn't have the mesh but had posterior and anterior repairs. I had a hysterectomy a long time ago.

    Hi I had hysterectomy and anterior repair last october. Fibroids were causing prolapse and stress incontinence.

    Wish I had been told more about prolapse and consequences. I had looked on internet but wish I had found out more.

    Had lots of help after op and took it easy.

    But about 13 weeks after prolapse came back both front and back. Too soon for another op and Dr has explained in detail probs with mesh.

    Tried ring pessary but they fell out. Shelf pessary sore. So now have gelhorn pessary. I am only 55 and you cannot have intercource with it in. And they norm kept in for 4-6 months at a time and taken out for cleaning and checking by a professional.

    But my gynaecologist has suggested I learn to do it myself so hubby and I can maintain sexual relations.

    Hubby now away for 3 weeks so I am trying to practice. Managed to take out once leave out overnight and put back it. But it us fiddly and major passion killer!

    Yes wish I had not had hysterectomy as I feel fibroids may have been shrunk medically. Though the gynae surgeon I had then was keen to operate. Also smaller prolapse that I had then might have been managed by ring pessary which are much easier to put in and out yourself.

      Ruth I am so sorry to hear about your experience. When you leave the pessary out, does your prolapse work its way down to the opening of your vagina area or does it stay up? Can to the bathroom normally without the pessary?
