Did your tipped uterus lead to a prolapse?

I think this is a very interesting poll. I have known I've had a tipped uterus since my first GYN appointment as a teenager. The doctor who was actually pretty good- said they use to say you had problems with bearing children with a tipped uterus, but that was untrue. I had no problems, but my second daughter was 9 lbs. 14 ounces which was very difficult for me. Considering I need help with my first daughter who was only about 7 pounds 2 ounces (forceps, vacuum). I will follow this thread and see what other people have to say. I had no fibroids, etc. just a uterus that felt like I was ready to "deliver". For this reason- I opted to have a hysterectomy and because of my family history and age (46) said take the ovaries, too.

Did your tipped uterus lead to a prolapse?

I've known I had a "tilted" uterus (as my dr. calls it) since I was about 12 years old but never put the two together. I'd be curious to see more about this.

Did your tipped uterus lead to a prolapse?

I had a "tipped" uterus. Extremly hard back labor!! Ouch. 2 miscarriages, then prolapsed. Fibroids. Had a vaginal hyster. with spinal, heck it was almost out anyway. The fibroids were so big that I was dialating and having contractions. Couldn't walk for 3 days!
So happy to have the dang thing out!

Did your tipped uterus lead to a prolapse?

I had a severely tipped uterus, had no prolapse, no problems getting pregnant, no problems delivering the babies, no back labor. But about 6 months to a year before I found out I had to have a hysterectomy I started having a lot of lower back pain....happy to say since the hysterectomy those are gone too!!

yes indeed

I, too, have had a tipped uterus as long as I can recall. Am 48 years old. They always have trouble find it at all, I've been told it's inverted.

Have five children, no miscarriages but had one tubal pregnancy - obviously "tipped" didn't hinder my ability to conceive or bear. But terrific "back labor". And I have a lot of pain in my back when I have cramping from heavy periods and passing clots.

My doc warned me a year and a half ago, that I was in imminent danger of prolapse and that everything was very "low" in the vaginal space.

I also have a number of fibroids (they've come and gone over the years and right now are numerous and large) and also am suffering severe anemia and either endometrial hyperplasia or adeno and have uterus the size of a 13-15 week pregnancy.

Can't wait to have it out! Four weeks from today.

My middle daughter (19 yrs, never been pregnant) just told me that her doc said her uterus was severely tipped.

I'll keep an eye on this poll.

I amazed at what might be an apparent link of a tipped uterus leading to a prolapsed one. Keep posting your experiences with this girls.
P.S. I had very severe cramps before having children. After kids they were still strong enough to take medication for but not as bad. Definantly had NO problems at all getting pregnant. Had a 27 hour labor vaginally that had to be delivered with forceps and vaccum to save another estimated 4 hours pushing. I said, "BRING IT ON!!!!" Wonder if the tipping severity changes a little after each birth? They told me also it was tipped at age 20 and also mentioned it again a week and 1/2 ago.

tipped uterus

Yes, I have had a tipped uterus forever and I have a prolapsed uterus that will be removed June 11. I did not think there was a connection between the two, but now that the responses are comming in, it seems there might be a link. I now have a new pre-op question for my doctor. I have given birth to 4 children and had pretty quick labors. I never had back labor with any of them. When I get my period I don't cramp in my back either. Interesting!!!!

Did your tipped uterus lead to a prolapse?

There's no "NO" in the poll. I had a retroflexed uterus (almost folded in half backwards) but no prolapse. (No kids, either, and that's probably the bigger factor). My hyst was for unresolved menstrual pain after laparoscopy and it turned out I had adenomyosis. But there was no prolapse AT ALL.

why not a no in the poll?

There is no "no" in the poll because this is strictly for women with tipped uterus or prolapse. Other female conditions that a hysterectomy is indicated for do not apply here. Thank-you for your interest in the poll! I am trying to add a question that will say Yes, I have a tipped uterus but my hysterectomy is indicated for other reasons. Thanks again for your interest.
