How exactly does this work?

I have been reading everything and anything. I am trying to understand how the prolapse works, to ease my mind. What I am afraid of is that the prolapse will always progress. I have a stage 2 Rectocele and I don't really understand how it works still. When you prolapse, does the degree happen in one instance, or has this gradually gotten worse until I finally noticed it. Do most people end up needing surgery? My gyn seemed really uninformed on the subject and I just want to understand so I can move on with my life. I noticed my prolapse 4 years after my last child was born.

Frequent urination, is it a uti?

Hi, I'm new here. I have to urinate two times in an hour and it has lasted for a month, i also feel a mild pain in my urethra during urination, is this a uti?

Am i doing this right?

I don't quite know where to start. I have so many questions but I have to start somewhere!!! Sorry for the long post.

Anatomy help please

I know the vagina is not a "black hole" but when I look with mirror standing, I see tissue (like rolls of fat or balls) that fills up the space. I know what my rectocele looks like and I can see it but these are above that . If I use finger to push a little seems like the tissue moves to the front towards bladder. I can also kegel this extra tissue up but it comes right back down…I have used my finger to see if it moves and it does. Seems to be bigger standing and gets smaller in different positions but it is always there. Is this a true prolapse or is this tissue visible for everyone?

New here, placenta didn't fully detach, confused, disappointed.

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I'm 14 months postpartum, to my second child. I've had two planned homebirths, my first an 8hr labour, 9lb13.5oz baby born in water. Was told by GP in UK I had a very slight prolapse following, that would no doubt reverse itself. Second child, fast delivery, 2hr labour, 9lb2oz, but my placenta didn't deliver. I wanted natural births so used various encouraging methods, eventually nearly 2hrs later it delivered, but hadn't detached and pulled out some other part of me. Fairly traumatic. Experienced midwife hadn't ever seen that happen.

Closed vagina with bleeding

Had surgery about 10 yrs ago...
Had a lot of scar tissue, did not have Dr repair again because we are not sexully active.
I was told the bleeding woul stop with hormones, then do not use it will stop on it's own.!It did not I have to use pads 24/7. I cannot use the pad that goes inside because the vagina has a one inch opening. So now there is no Gynurologist on my plan. What the heck do I do?

Honey and pain

I found this site a little over a year ago and have read the book and watched a couple of the DVDs. I did do the posture at first, and then got out of the habit, and now I am trying to do the posture again.

What is going on?

Could i have prolapse? What is going on with my body? I am a 43 year old woman who has had 3 children, regular cycles that I was grateful lasted only 3 days. For the last 5 years quite often I feel as though I have a uti (frequency, aching) but test results are negavtive. My gyn put me on macrobid to use after intercourse, but that did not help the bladder pressure symptoms
