      @DoctorStrangeS1mp too young for symptoms?! I STARTED developing pelvic organ prolapse at 13! (It's gotten worse as the years went on) Nobody is too young. Advocate for yourself and literally tell them that you wish to see someone else because you deserve care for your symptoms no matter your age

      Too young to have symptoms??? Sorry you went through that nonsense. Did you get an official diagnosis later?

      They didn’t even tell me about my prolapse at the urologist when I was there for my bladder issues. He wrote that I was too young to have symptoms (I have loads of symptoms) I didn’t want surgery I just wanted people to tell me I wasn’t crazy.

        @DoctorStrangeS1mp have you seen a urogyn? I can believe a dr would dismiss your symptoms. I am heading into surgery on the 30 th because of my stage 4 cystocele. Having some other things fixed too as a result of a difficult and natural 1st childbirth. I love my son but wow did he rip me apart

      Have you had an official diagnosis and surgery consult? At my consult, she said I would need to wait a full year postpartum to even discuss surgery, so I'll be going back in May. I have a friend who apparently doesn't even have prolapse per se, but the doctor described "a pocket" which sounded like a rectocele to me. Anyway, she's not eligible for surgery even though she has fecal incontinence. I've heard they don't like to do this surgery on non-elderly women because it doesn't last long, half of women have new pain with sex, and with each repeat surgery, the risk of incontinence goes up. What type of prolapse do you have?

      I’m 28 and I had 2 vaginal births. I’m not planning on another one right now. If I will, it’ll be a caesarean for sure. What about you?

      Same here. I developed a rectocele and possibly a hypermobile urethra (I had two different evals) as a result of my shitty delivery in April. How old are you and how many vaginal births have you had? Do you plan to have more kids?

      You nailed it(: I suffer from vaginal prolapse as a result of a long and hard birth. Thinking about having a surgery soon, still too scared though
