    Hello, Martina, I to felt like you, but now have found a lovel lady on NHS, who has the time to Listen to me, and after examination, she said I had a small rectocele , with i continence, and  is now going to try me fiirst on a device, that you use to imitate the pelvic floor  exercises , as I do find them hard to do, especially after a year of doing it the wrong way (from Internet ) so I am willing to give this a try, I will buy it after the next visit , to make sure when she tries it on me again there is a  any improvement .

    Hi Martina push to see a urogynaecologist! I saw my gp and they diagnosed a mild cystocele and referred me to physio which took months then I done a course of physio still no help, wasn't getting referred to anyone else so after a year (not including the two years previous I'd been going not even diagnosed with mild!) I went to see a urogynae private and she couldn't understand that they thought I had a mild cystocele, she graded a grade 2/3 rectocele and recommended surgery which was found to be a grade 3 rectoenterocele which I had repairs for and a grade 1 uterus prolapse. Confusing and physio said I only had mild cystocele and didn't need to see a urogynae, I knew it seemed more than mild so push to see the right people to diagnose properly and good luck.

    Demand a referral to a Urogynaecologist as pelvic floors are their specialty & doubt they will fob you off. They have done 3yrs extra training than regular Gynaecologists, in pelvic floor prolapses and surgeries.

    Physio's are not trained to diagnose, & it is outside their field and should not be allowed. You need a fully trained medical Doctor for that.
