Have you had children OP ? When you say exercise, do you mean pelvic floor exercises ? Most things can be fixed. It is possible, that you have a slight rectal prolapse, which presses against the vaginal wall.
If you make an appointment with your GP, he/she, will then make you an appointment at your local Continence Clinic. It'll be okay OP, you just need to see the right people. Pelvic floor exercises, over time, can work wonders. Sooner you go, sooner it can be sorted, try not to worry. 💐
I went through physio for vaginal prolapse, an NHS referral to specialist incontinence physio, it really worked. Saw them for about nine months, doing very specific pelvic floor exercises, it took time but now i have no issues. Ask your gp or search 'womens health' physio in your area, often you can self refer
With a prolapse don't do any exercise that involves sit ups or running, deep squats or lifting weights, as those can make it worse. The prolapse can be felt more in the evening time or following exercise such as the above.
sorry to hear this. I had stress incontinence for years and have had it fixed with surgery. I also have a rectocele which is sadly way beyond what could be helped with physio alone so awaiting further surgery. I'm trying to educate myself as much as possible and have bought a couple of Kindle books this week. This one has lots of info for treating with conservative measures. Appreciate it's early days for you as you've need seen your GP yet but if it is a prolapse then don't despair. There's also a very supportive group on Facebook.
