Vaginal prolapse, can I have sex and children??

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this topic, but here it goes...

I gave birth to DS 6 weeks ago and his absolutely gorgeous and I'm really enjoying motherhood. However, last week I saw what looks like a vaginal prolapse. I saw an episode of Embarrassing Bodies on the telly with a lady who had quite a bad case of it and I went straight to check my bits and saw that I had something similar but on a smaller scale. I'm due to have my 6-weeks-check next week and will discuss this with the GP, but in the interim I'm panicking about this and quite tearful and depressedsad.. I've been googleing around (probably the last thing to do, I know!) and I saw that this condition might mean that sex is really painful and you might have to have a hysterectomy!!

I'm not that keen on sex, but I'd really want to have another baby.. I just wanted to know if anyone else has this condition and how it has affected their lives and what treatment was offered.

Many thanks!
