Oh dear... that embarrasing?

hiddenID Thu 12-May-05 12:02:24

ok,

when i need a number 2 i get a big bulge hanging out of my vagina and i cant go unless i press on it with my thumb.

am v. embarassed, any ideas what it could be?

If you've been through childbirth then NOTHING is embarrasing IMO

SPARKLER1 Thu 12-May-05 12:03:11

sounds like a vaginal prolapse. Have heard of them but not medical qualified to give to much information.

i'm guessing it's a vaginal prolapse - not unusual for women who have given birth. you really do need to go and see your gp, who will then refer you to a specialist. there have been a couple of threads on this recently - search on "prolapse".

don't worry, i understand it can be sorted out.

hth and good luck.

Agree with sparkler re. nothing's impossible after childbirth. However, so says the person who can't go for her smear test. Does it hurt? How long has this been going on?

Does it sound anything like this?

go to your gp - they have dealt with that lots of times before - it is quite common after childbirth - and it is not your fault.

Chandra Thu 12-May-05 12:06:54

Can't offer much help but believe me, GPs should have seen things far more embarrasing than that. The other day I was reading about the finalists of the Darwin Prize and one of them had a Hamster stuck in his anus... So don't be afraid, it will be fine.

SPARKLER1 Thu 12-May-05 12:08:09

Please don't feel embarassed it's very common and the GP will have seen this problem many times before. Go get it checked out and you will feel so much better and comfortable.

Go, they will not be surprised. These things happpen quite naturaly and they are trained to sort it out for you. You have nothing to be ashamed about.

Mate of miine is a doc in a @ e and once had to removed a brut bottle from someones rectum! Trust me they have see it all

hiddenID Thu 12-May-05 12:15:52

thank you

yes it does sound exactly like that link that sparkler1 put up - thanks

it doesnt hurt at all but is horrible.

been going on since the birth of my 2nd child

at hamster and beer bottles

Cant advise you hiddenID but my baby sis is a GP & your problem is nothing compared to some of the stuff she has to deal with. Please, please go & see your doctor - that shouldn't be happening.
