(NSFW) What happens when something in you is prolapsed?

Asked by darkserenade (132 points ) May 12th, 2012

My doctor said a part of my rectum prolapsed—I have had no symptoms other than a small bulge on the inside wall of my vagina. He said it is very common but I never hear women talk about it so I’m embarrassed to discuss it.

Has anyone else experienced this? I haven’t had sex for a couple of years, but might soon. Does it change how you have sex?

Does it feel different for men when having sex with someone with a prolapse?

Does anyone know a way to fix it without surgery?

It depends on how much, where and what. Your doctor can give you specific answers. Can you feel it with your fingers? I am taking a guess here but to a penis, it might feel nice..a little extra grab or pressure.

Do you have a really close friend to tale a test drive?

Wiki says that in minor cases, it’ll fix itself eventually. For everything else, there’s SurgeryCard.
My advice: prioritize the fixing.

A prolapse is when something ends up in the wrong place. Wether or not it needs surgery depends on the symptoms it’s giving you. In the case of organs prolapsing into the vagina surgery can leave you very tight or unable to have sex useless the surgeon specifically arranges things correctly.
As to the question of sex I have known a woman who had her bladder prolapse into the vagina and it did not interfere with sex at all either before or after surgery.

I’ve experienced vaginal prolapse after I delivered my first child without contractions. Eventually, my vagina reorganized itself but it’s shaped differently now.

I spoke to someone who had this condition after childbirth and after many years decided to have a surgical repair. The surgery went well, but she said the recovery was long and very uncomfortable (read painful). She said if she had it to do over she would not have the surgery – 5 years later she still sits on a doughnut pillow at work.

A belated thank you all for your replies. I haven’t been back here in a while.
