Cystocele pp / Lifting and breathing

I’m 29 with my first baby. I had natural birth, no tears and only 2,5kg baby. I thought I was all clear. 2 months pp I realized I was not ok. I had mild pelvic inflammatory disease (uterus infection) for 2 months. I was too tired to notice the symptoms. I ate lots of antibiotics with no help.

Urinary incontinence

When I need to quickly get to the bathroom, a feeling comes into my vagina like the feeling of a climax is building. Why is that?

Is sitting this way WW approved?


I've found that when I'm working (office job) I want to shift positions as the hours go by (as well as get up every hour or so!)
but I find myself falling into this sitting position often and I *hope hope hope* this position is ww approved.
I want to say that my pelvis is tilted forward, i'm not sitting back on my tailbone, lumbar curve is in place and chest stays lifted... so far so good.
but i'll try to describe it - i sit with my right leg down, foot on the floor or heel hooked onto the bottom part of the office chair, toe pointed into the floor.

Cystocele or pubic bone 28

hello please somebody help I am very confused. I am sure that I have a rectocele, no I cannot feel any bulge of it but there’s definitely fullness and tightness in my vagina which came after the day I strained on toilet and felt a lot of pain and preassure in my vagina and anus. Also since then I haven’t been able to evacuate all at once muscles of the anus contract before I am done and I am having to thrice a day

True Whole Woman shape of cervical spine ?


I realize that medical books teach that the human spine is to be an “S” shape whereas Whole Woman teaches that the true anatomical shape of the spine has less of a thoracic curvature and more of a lumbar curvature, especially in females, due to the greater number of wedged vertebra.

My question is in regards to the cervival spine. Are there any differences in what the medical literature would teach as normal cervival spinal shape as opposed to what Whole Woman would teach is the true anatomically correct shape of the human cervical spine?

what am I doing wrong?

Hello, I am happy that I have found this wonderful pages...I live according to WW for 3-4 months (I bought book and have 3 online courses). I have cystocele (now 2nd stage) and now also for 4 months uterus prolaps, everything is getting worse . I am 13 months post partum (prolaps occure 6 week after delivery - 1st stage of cystocele, hypermobile urethra). My baby is heavier and heavier and I have to lift her up, carry, squat....

Sleeping positions, sneeze


Hi everyone,
Is there any specifications to how we should sleep as in can we sleep on our right, left side, on or stomach, or should we only sleep on our back?pillow or no pillow?
Also I have nasal allergies so lot of sneezing but I massage my nose a little when I feel like it and it stops. Is there anything wrong with that?

Tilted uterus or prolapse

I just typed out a long question on my phone, and lost it somehow. So I am going to make this post short. Is it possible that I really have a prolapsed uterus when my OB/GYN said that I have a tilted uterus? I am three years past menopause and I know I have a prolapsed bladder.

New line of work


In my job as a hospital housekeeper, it is hard to avoid lifting, pushing, pulling, bending, squatting, etc... My goal at this point is to move ahead and find a new line of work. There is a lot of pressure to rush when the hospital is full up. My least favorite phrase is "stat discharge." For me staying hopeful is hardest at the end of a busy work day.
I cancelled my scheduled prolapse surgery.
