First-timer w/a question about squatting

Hello everyone! This is my first message. I have been inspired and encouraged by all the messages I've read on this site. Thank you all for sharing your feelings and experiences.

I had a TVH on November 29, 2004. I'm healing well and, thanks to this site, apparently everything I've been feeling is perfectly normal. However, I did have a question for which I just can't seem to find an answer. My doctor told me that I should always avoid squatting. Not just post-op, but forever. He said that my vagina could turn inside out as I get older (I'm 34), if I'm not careful. He said he always reminds his patients at their annual exams not to squat. I tried to look this up online, but couldn't find anything. Has anyone heard of this before and is it true?

I look forward to hearing from you whether you have an answer or not.

INSIDE OUT?????

That sounds very painful! Never heard of this before. How could our vagina's turn inside out?

I hope, too, that someone can shed some light on this. Weird stuff.....

YIKES!!! Is that possible? I was having some fears about that yesterday because of pain I was experiencing. I had an abdominal hys., but I was wondering if the vaginal cuff could turn inside out, but the vagina is an organ in the body, not a tube that can come out!

Anybody?

Yikes! That would be horrible! I've been told not to bend ( LAVH with right oopherectomy Jan 6th 05 ) and so I squat. My chyropractor has also said I should squat - It's better for the back. Hmmm I'll have to ask my Gyn.

OK, now I don't want to offend anyone, and I KNOW that women aren't animals, however, I have heard just recently of a cow that was in labor and her vagina popped out of her body. So maybe it can come unattached or something? Blech! I don't even wanna think about it...

this may also sound biased, but someone needs to ask a female doctor about this.

Often when a person actually has the organ themselves, they know more about how they work...

I will ask my Gyn today as I have my 6 week follow up with her at 4 pm.

I know that sometimes during a BM, you can strain your rectal tissues to push themselves outside, but I've not heard of that same thing with a vagina.
