This is my first time posting and I really need some help and advice. I am a 27 year old female with no children or known medical conditions.
Basically it all started a couple of weeks ago, I went to the loo and it felt like something was stuck! Never had this sensation before so I had a look down there and could feel the inside of my vagina and my pereneum bulging with poo (excuse the graphic ness). I ended up having to push again my vaginal wall and my pereneum to be able to go and since then I have suffered the same problem.
It's not so bad some days as I have started taking fibre supplements and laxative, but I have had a few days where I feel like I really need to go but can't. I have never suffered badly from constipation but I'm pretty sure this isn't it! It just doesn't feel normal to me.
Anyway a few days after ribs initially happened I was due some swabs down there and asked the nurse to check my vagina and she said that everything seemed normal and was possibly constipation.
I have just been for a rectal exam today and the doctor again said everything feels normal.
So what the hell is happening?
I am so scared to eat anything that may make it worse and am constantly dreading going to the toilet or straining while I'm there in case I make it worse.
Or course I have done the worst thing you could do and looked it up in the Internet and everything seems to be pointing to rectocele or some sort of prolapse but the doctors didn't seem to be concerns.
So now I am not sure what to do. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. If it is the start of something I want to know so I can do everything I can to minimise the effects. It scares me that these symptoms seem to be very common in people who are older and have had children!
