Pre op Uterine polapse

This is my first post and I am not even sure if I am doing this correctly.
anyway.....I have been diagnosed with Uterine prolapse and an op is advised.
As yet it is not tooooo bad (well not hanging out yet!).
I am exploring alternatives or just some support should I decided to have a
vaginal op to removed the uterus. My uterus is retrograde into the bargain and
that isn't helping.'
My Gyn/Ob has prescribed Ovestrin (?) oestrogen cream to use daily for 3 weeks and then
once a week leading up to the operation. I suspect there may be side effects to
this cream and am vehemently anti HRT.

Hi Denise,

I also had a prolapsed uterus that was retro. I had a TVH on 4-22-02 and I believe it was one of the best things I have ever done. I can already tell a difference internally--the pain and pressure is lifted. Kept my ovaries. I feel great!
What have your symptoms been?
I was never advised to use any cream. What is it suppose to help with? I was given a low dose birth control pill to help control my pain (swelling and bleeding) they (bc pill) just made me NUTS!
Anyway, there are a lot of wonderful women here. Good luck making your decision.

Blessed be,

Hi Denise!
You may also want to try the search feature on 'prolapse' and see if you can find some posts on the subject.

I am not sure what other alternatives may be available to you! All the best to you in your searches....asking questions and getting informed is one of the best things you can do in making your decision. Looks like you have a good start!!!

Good luck to you!
