Cervix - Prolapse

Hi - I used this site extensively back in 2011 before my supracervical hysterectomy. The doctor removed my uterus and left ovary/tube.

I have been feeling pressure in my vaginal area and something is peaking out. I went for my annual Pap yesterday and mentioned it to the nurse practitioner. I asked if it could be my cervix and she said I hope not. During the Pap, she had me cough before and after and it appears it is my cervix.

She prescribed a vaginal hormone cream (not sure what yet because I haven't picked it up from the pharmacy) and wants to try Kegels 4x per day for the next 3 months. She mentioned that she feels things are too far along for either to help and that I will need to see the gynecologist at that point.

To be honest, I do not know much about any of this and am wondering your thoughts. I imagine there could more involved than my cervix. I am not leaking urine and nor am I dealing with constipation although the "peaking" does get worse after a bowel movement.

The pap smear has definitely aggravated things today.

Any suggestions? Thank you.

HI, I would urge you to make an appointment with a urogynecologist. They typically do pelvic floor repairs. I would also recommend that you ask for a referral to a pelvic floor PT to see if you can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles before any surgery.

Re: Cervix - Prolapse

I had my total Hysterectomy with prolapsed bladder and bowel repair on January 28. I had several months of bladder issues and was advised to try Pelvic Floor PT. My therapist was my hero! She understood my issues and encouraged me all the while giving me some great advice and pelvic floor exercises. I don't have appointments any longer but continue with the exercises and kegels. She told me that it's a lot of hard work and she was right! I still have some leaks but very manageable.
Hope that you have access to this type of therapy! I highly advise it.

Re: Cervix - Prolapse

Speaking from experience I would ask to see a urogynecologist now. I don't think I would wait 3 months. I've had prolapse surgeries twice now. About 8 years after the first prolapse surgery I started prolapsing again. So I was sent to physical therapy. I had bladder, vaginal, and rectal prolapse. Physical therapy did help me locate the muscles but it didn't fix the prolapse. Everyone is different though.

Thank you. I have an appointment on Aug 26 to see the urogyn. I will have a vaginal ultrasound and Urodynamics test to evaluate what all is involved. I know know that at a minimum I have a vaginal vault prolapse. My cervix is really coming out of my vagina - stage 3 prolapse. I feel a lot of pressure and just uncomfortable. I have also started a vaginal estrogen compounded cream for atrophy and dryness.
