Long but i need help/advice BADLY. 7 years ago at 21 i was told I had a minor pelvic prolapse due to a trumatic labor and delivery. No treatment or advice was given and i was sent on my way. About 3 years and 2nd child after that the pain during sex and everyday pressur and buldging became unbarable. They put me on antidepressents saying i just didnt want to have sex and was exaggerating. 1.5 year ago things got really bad for me and something very small and painful was protruding from my vagina at all times. They sent me to phsyical therapy and said it was my urethra. They did not tell me what type or degree of prolapse. I see online there is multiple. They did tell me after months of therapy it wasnt working, i had nerve damage and loss of feeling which is probably why i often do kegales incorrectly i cant feel or control the muscle. Sent me on my way. Now, i am pregnant with 3rd child. The pain is extreme. Sorry to be graphic but all of these things are hanging out of my vagina, i cry every day and i havent been able to have intercourse in almost 2 months. I dont know whats hanging out, but its like strings/loops and a buldge. It is all so raw. Im scared somehow the loop will tear (like when you rip an earring down ) in half. I dread bowel movments and hold them in because more and more things fall out and it becomers more and more painful. I can shove some back inside , the rest remains. (Mostly its these strings and loops that remain) but after walking and standing all day it all shifts out and i have to reinsert it.
Obgyn has not given me any internal exams. I asked them to at 33 weeks because the prolapse pain and he refused and joked about old women that come in swaying between the knees , basically said its not that bad, and there is no help for pregnant women anyway just do kegals. I do kegals. Hundrends and hundreads of effing Keagles. And i dont find any of this funny. Im actually incredibly embarrassed, depressed, worried, and in pain but glad you think its an effing riot!!!! I need to know whats hanging out of me , any ideas ???????? Are there any support groups for this ???? I think this may be a uk group and i am in usa , not sure if it matters. How do you get a dr to listen ????? Am i at risk to infection with all of this hanging out of me (very concerning being pregnant)? Can/should i still have a vaginal birth??? All questions for a dr that no dr will give me. I dont have the option of changing drs until after delivery due to having a small HMO network and needing local hospital for giving birth next month.
