fear factor

Please, everyone, be careful about what you hear.

We don't need to be very afraid all of the time!!! The current political administration likes to keep the sheep in order with fear-mongering. It seems to invade every aspect of our lives - including women's health. Use your common sense, find a doctor that you think knows what she/he is doing. Don't fall for the "sky is falling!!!" factor. Do your homework.

First-timer w/a question about squatting

Like it was mentioned earlier, women who have/are suffering with prolapse, be it bladder, rectal, vaginal, etc are advised to limit their squatting. Squatting puts excess pressure on the pelvic floor and could possibly contribute to future prolapse.
I was informed of this by my GYN and thought he was a bit on the nutty side. A year later, as I was going through physical therapy for the pelvic floor, the therapist (a female who has birthed 3 children) also advised me to limit squatting and continued to elaborate on how pressure is placed on the pelvic floor. Another thing women who suffer from prolapse need to avoid is jogging as the pounding on the pavement causes excess strain on the pelvic floor.
Like someone else mentioned people need to take advice with a grain of salt and go with what they believe.

I apologize if I offended anyone by my earlier post about the difference between he and she doctors.

doctors are doctors and they are all trained professionals.

yes, I do have a bias, but will keep it to myself!

thanks for the reminder.

I Really want to know the answer to this. I had my final exam at 4 weeks and complained about my huge, hanging stomach. My MD told me I was free to begin sit ups and squats!!!! Oh my God, he must hate me. Either that or he wants me as a return customer but I find that hard to believe. Please let us know what the doctor says. My MD must be nuts to recommend this at 4 weeks.

Are you princesses talking about squatting while urinating (as in public potties) or squatting to pick up things from the floor? I'm totally confused. I was taught to squat so I wouldn't touch the seat in a public bathroom. If this is the squatting that you are talking about, I guess I'm stopping. Will look for more posts on this subject.

Thanks for clearing that up for us, Sharon! What a relief!

Here's something real to be afraid of now: Doctors (who are treating women) being so misinformed in the first place!!!!

Things that make you go hmmmmm, indeed.

Lions and tigers and GYNs who think vaginas can turn inside out, OH MY! It is indeed a hormone jungle out there!
