How do you feel for bulging in vagina from prolapse??

I am sure I am driving you all crazy with my list of posts, but who better to ask then my sisters here? I have read some posts that talked about feeling a bulge in the vagina and bulge from the rectum. I do not really feel a bulge in my vagina, or at least far enough down to feel it. And as far a rectal bulging I have some really large protruding hemmeroids and can barley pass stools, so I dont think ANYTHING could possibly fit past them. How can I tell besides having a Dr check?

I also read a few posts that some of you have to press on the back wall of your vagina to have a BM, how exactly do you do that and where do you push at?? I am really

I get really when I have to strain to get ANYTHING out.

What specialist should I see for bowel problems?? I have to be referred out so I need a recomendation..

Thanks to you all!!! You are all my 's

How do you feel for bulging in vagina from prolapse??

(((Pam)))) ask away: that's what we're here for... to offer and support and to provide what information we can pass on, thanks to our experience

I'm one of those who's first hint of a rectocele was feeling a bulge in the vagina. In my case, I felt it while showering. It was right at the entrance of the vagina and really freaked me out

From all the research I did on prolapse when I was pre-hyst, I found out that there are several stages of prolapse. Stage 3, which is what I had, and Stage 4, which is when the organs are actually protruding out of the vagina, are easy enough to diagnose. However, for Stage 1 and Stage 2, the doctor might need to do further tests to see if there is a prolapse in existance. One thing I remember seeing is that if a doctor can't feel a prolapse while examining you lying down, you can insist on being examined while standing up, which will often bring "down" the prolapse.

That's why you really need to have a doctor address these issues because they're really the only ones who can effectively diagnose what is going on. My experience has been that doctors appreciate it when you go to them informed about your symptoms, so don't be afraid to make suggestions as to possible causes for your symptoms.

Sending tons of your way. Please keep us posted.

There you are, at my rescue once again!!!
I am posting in response to my last 2 posts so I dont have to sit here very long. I dont feel anything protruding YET. My GYN told me my bladder was a little low but it seemed like he was more concerned with getting my thyroid leveled out and my back taken care of at that point. Since those 2 issues have been addressed, I am now on a mission to find out what is NEXT.

I have seen some people say they had to press on the back of their vaginal wall to have a bowel movement and I was wondering how and where to push to see if that may help.

My lower left pain is a really strong pain at times and I also am cramping like I am on my period, which is IMPOSSIBLE, there is nothing left there.. I just wish I knew where it was coming from. The cramping is all across my lower abdomen but the left side is a bigger pain that is contained by itself.

So when they said you had a spastic colon, was the pain from that only on your right side?? I am a HUGE mass of confusion with everything right now.. I feel so helpless, not to mention useless.

Thanks for being there once again... I hope you are doing OK today. I am going to go and

Hi Pam

Since I never had to "splint" as you describe, I can't shed any on that subject.

Where my spastic colon pain is concerned, it really is only in the lower right abs. Very specific area and no cramping. However, I've since noticed that when I get the going, it relieves that pain.

Hope the does you good.
