prolapsed uterus

Can anyone tell me if a prolapsed uterus is the same as an everted uterus. I was at the GYN yesterday and he told me I have an everted uterus. It is not that it is a bad one, but that with my yeast problems he thinks it might be contributing to the yeast. Anyway, he hopes that if we can get the yeast under control with some prophylactic medicine, that it might help with the uterus because he says that with the everted uterus, it is harboring lots of mucous and is a wonderful breeding ground for the yeast. Just looking for any input. Thanks!

prolapsed uterus

Hi ((Bouquets)) & welcome
I'm sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis & the ongoing infections
A tipped/inverted or retroverted Uterus is not the same as a Prolapse. A prolapse is where the Uterus has *fell* down mostly due to support issues, lack of them...where a Retroverted/tipped Uterus is usually a condition your born with but can happen due to childbirth or disease. It *tips* or leans backwards...mine was described as being Tipped. It did cause some issues for me but not such as your experiencing

We have a directory that contains hundreds of very informative links. Click here to access our Option & Alternative Resources
In it there is some excellent links to info on both of the above conditions. Here is one that I found there... it describes this condition, in detail, along with lists the symptoms & any possible treatment(s):

Tipped Uterus or Retroverted Uterus Information:
A tipped uterus is the term used to describe a uterus that is tilted backwards away from the belly. The condition is also referred to as a retroverted uterus or tilted uterus. All three terms are interchangeable. The uterus is normally suspended in a straight up and down position or slightly forward toward the belly.
I hope this helps! Good Luck with everything....hopefully, that yeast infection will clear up soon
I do hope you will keep us posted on how things are going....((((hugs))))

prolapsed uterus

Hi (((Bouquets))) , everted is not a term we're used to hearing here because it's usually a veterinary term, although years back it was also used to describe a prolapse, so I think maybe your DR meant it to mean prolapse.

Usually 'everted' would mean the prolapse is fairly severe, with the cervix close to the vaginal opening or outside it (as mine was). But it sounds like your DR said your prolapse was not that severe.

Funny you should be having trouble with yeast infections. I never had a yeast infection in my life until the year before my prolapse diagnosis. I didn't know I was prolapsing, but apparently it had already moved down enough to make this an issue.

What sort of meds is your DR going to try to prevent the yeast infections? Taking some type of probiotic daily can help a lot, as can a little vaginal estrogen if you are perimenopausal or menopausal. Limiting your sugar intake will also reduce your likelihood of having recurrent yeast infections because sugars are what yeasts like to eat. There is an article with more information about yeast infections here:

I hope this helps! Good luck, I hope you are able to handle the yeast infections and delay or avoid having to have surgery.
