I am 6 months pp, had 3rd degree tear and now have anal fissures that I am currently going through treatment for. I have been suffering from a 'tickley' cough since the end of last week and on Sunday I had quite a few coughing fits. As I was coughing I pulled in on my pelvic floor muscles but since Sunday I have had that 'falling out' feeling. It doesn't feel as bad as that feeling for the first month or so after having DC. I can't actually see anything that has 'fallen out'. The feeling doesn't affect me going to the toilet and i can't feel anything falling out. I saw my physio yesterday but she just brushed it off and actually ended up discharging me from physio care. Didn't even do an examination. Just said the muscles are weak so you may get that feeling when you cough. Is my physio right or is it something more?

Hi, I've had two normal births and I've also had a slight prolapse, I got it when I had a chest infection , from coughing.It was surgically repaired when I had a an ovarian cyst removed. It does feel like something is falling out down below, like you haven't quite inserted a tampon in far enough. It can feel uncomfortable. I went to the GP when it first happened to me, I got referred to a gynae who examined me and told me to do my pelvic floor exercises. I did and it improved. See your GP if you're worried, I expect they'll tell you to do pelvic floor exercises x

Thanks for you reply. When I need to cough I have to sit down as I can't do it standing up, falling out feeling is worse. I'm so anxious about it.
