Prolapse womb and bladder

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all,

I have a prolapsed womb and bladder.  A couple of years ago my dr felt this whilst I was having a checkup.

I went back to the dr about two weeks ago as I had that dragging feeling and keep needing to urinate a lot very often.

When my dr examined me she said the prolapse was a bit worse from the time before but she also noticed two bumps on my cervic, she had a good look and said they were mucus filled cysts.

She has referred me to a gyneocholigist.  I also informed her that on a few different occasions I have bled abit (not heavy) after sex, usually I haven't bled after sex but these times were when I have been sitting on top of my partner and penetration was deep and abit rougher.   All the other times I don't bleed.

Today when I had the smear it was really painful and there was blood on the swab, I asked the nurse if this was normal and she said yes, it's because we use a plastic brush to get the cells off.

Since then I have been feign tender and have pain in my lower abdomin, but I have had that on and off before but seems to have agree ares it since I had the smear.

Could anyone to me if my symptoms are usual for someone with a prolapse ?

I am 50 yrs old and going through the menopause.

I am worried in case it's cervical cancer 😔

    Hello Tina. It sounds very much like it's all connected with your prolapses. Most of us on this forum discussion have mentioned having had dull dragging pains in our back or lower stomach; a bit like period pains. I shouldn't worry too much. Your gynaecologist will check everything including where the spotting is coming from and will know will advise you of the best course of action, I guess we all worry about the  'Big C' it's only natural but smears will probably be done too. In any case if if you did show cancerous cells they can easily be zapped with laser treatment these days.  I had prolapses to the both the rectal wall and bladder - but not the uterus - which were repaired a year ago. The recovery is slow so you have to be prepared to REST, for 7-10 weeks which can be extremely frustrating when you're feeling raring to go, therefore help around the home is a must during that time - but 12 months down the line I can tell you that everything is now excellent and so delighted I had it done. I am now fully fit and functioning in 'every department' even at 70yrs - so go for it and get it all put right. You'll feel as good as new. Best wishes, LadyPink

    Hi Tina I have a prolapse (Rectocle) and am also suffering with problems with my bladder frequent urination and Im sure the prolapse is pressing and afecting my bladder function. I had a smear taken recently despit having vaginitis it was very uncomfortable and a cyto brush had to be used. I feared it may come back abnormal but had the results at weekend and its normal, Im sure will be be the same. Take care.
