Prolapse?!

Really worried i have some sort of prolapse. How would I know?

Tmi alert...

Ive had a look and when I 'open' the vag I can see something..so difficult to describe. Could be vaginal walls, I'm not sure. Freaking out that it's a uterine prolapse and I will need a hysterectomy?! Nothing is hanging out but I have pain when walking. When I do pelvic floor exercise I can see the hole closing but this thing behind it remains there and doesn't seem to move. When I push the thing doesn't protrude any more . Don't know if anything to be worries about or normal at 6 wks post delivery?!

Help :'( was meant to have 6 wk check on Wed but will move to mon. Xx

Meant to say I have been doing heavy lifting as my pushchair and car seat weigh a tonne but surely every mum does this...

Prolapses are incredibly common, and there's no need to panic. Go to the doctor, and do your pelvic floor exercises.

You are only 6 weeks postpartum and things take a long while to move back into place.

Seriously, don't panic, its not that big a deal flowers

Thank you flowers only worried it's uterine and have scared myself googling as it keeps mentioning hysterectomy - am only mid 20s with 1 dc! X

They wouldn't give you a hysterectomy unless your cervix was below your knees, and even then they'd probably try and pin everything back in place first...
