    Hi I had the same thing. Mine was a prolapse in the vagina. I had surgery in 2016 Things are better but my Dr used a sling and now there is a lot of controversy lately about the use of mesh which I am pretty sure he used. Check out exactly how your surgeon will do the surgery Ask lots of questions

    Is it on front or back wall? Sounds like rectocele (back wall prolapse) or cystocele (front wall) . Or possibly cervical descent if v high up. Lots of info on the APOPS website or join their private facebook group. D books by sherrie palm and muchelle kenway - try Googling them . I'm 57 and my rectocele was soft and sort of spongy and obscuring entrance. Not sure about hormones. I tried pelvic floor exercises for 6 mths and a pessary but neither helped. Also had grade 2 cystocele and cervical descent. Just had surgery without any mesh for all 3. 2 weeks later am tired but fine and hopefully all ok. Arm yourself with info so you can ask questions. Good luck! X

     I am on 52 years and have had four kids -I started noticing a kind of bulge inside the vagina- it didn't bother me with any sexual activities or when using the bathroom - (I just figured this was normal)until about six months ago when I started having problems urinating - it just seemed that I was not emptying my bladder completely .

     After consulting with a gynecologist she then referred me to a  urologist gynecologist.  He confirmed I had a prolapse and I would require surgery .

    I had a rectocele with a vaginal wall support reconstruction- it turns out I had some major work done and all without an  artificial mesh -

    The recovery Can last up to to 2-3 months- I am only four weeks postop and just had an appointment to confirm I am healing properly !  I don't believe exercises or Estrogen   will  help-

     Ask your doctor what your options are - and good luck !
