I have had every symptom listed for vaginal prolapse. I had UTI (urinary tract infection) after UTI, pain, cramping and constipation. Not really one for doctor's visits, I do have my annual exam and went to my doctor, Planned Parenthood and the emergency room. So far, they just can't seem to work out what the problem is. The only thing anyone has said (the obstetrician) is that lovely word, prolapse.

With my vaginal prolapse, it protrudes whenever I am walking around, and do a lot bending and stooping or lifting. However, I wind up having back pain, and one morning I tried to stand up straight and couldn't because it felt like all my (hamstrings) or muscles were pulling in my lower back of upper legs and hips connecting to my back. I had to stretch and sit and do a little walking in the house (bent over) before it cleared up.

I am looking for suggestions on how to get relief from surgery to repair my vaginal prolapse. It feels like the 'baby' is going to fall out every time I do any activity that involves standing which means I can't exercise.

I've had dryness, feeling of pressure below, and I've been urinating more. I just found out that I have this and I also have a cervical prolapse (now that I have insurance).
