  • "A vaginal prolapse is a condition in which structures such as the uterus, rectum, bladder, urethra, small bowel, or the vagina itself may begin to prolapse, or fall, out of their normal positions. Without medical treatment or surgery, these structures may eventually prolapse farther and farther into the vagina or even through the vaginal opening if their supports weaken enough."

  • I have a patient who has this. I am not a 100% sure but I think it's when the vaginal muscles become very weak and the vagina kinda turns itself inside out where the cervix is sticking out of the vaginal opening. I think that's what it is.

  • That could be vaginal vericose veins. I developed them when I was pregnant, but they don't bother me now. When I was pregnant they would shoot pains through them. Very embarrassing when I would double over and grab my crotch!

  • Thanks Mishelly but I don't have any vericose veins and when I googled it it shows you would have them on the legs as well. Now I'm getting more worried.
