If it’s mild, which usually means that it’s just a small posterior vaginal prolapse, then affected females may have no symptoms. However, some females do experience certain symptoms such as: Difficulty having a bowel movement, a soft bulge of tissue in your vagina that might protrude through the vaginal opening, sensation of rectal pressure or fullness, a feeling that the rectum has not completely emptied after a bowel movement, sexual concerns (feeling embarrassed or sensing looseness in the tone of your vaginal tissue). In some cases, patients also report prolapse of other pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus or — for women who have had surgery to remove the uterus (hysterectomy) — the top of the vagina.
Many women do not experience any symptoms. Those that have symptoms may note a fullness or discomfort in the vagina, a sensation of heaviness or pulling in the pelvis and/or low backache that is relieved when lying down. Some may suffer from more symptoms such as urinary frequency and/or stress incontinence – passing urine when laughing, coughing or exercising. Difficulty with bowel movements is also a common symptom. Moreover, intercourse may be difficult or painful.
How to be diagnosed? I’m so worried about my current condition!
Hey, what happens? Can you brief more on your symptoms? Not sure if you need a test for this disease. A gynecologist is whom you can ask for help!
Don’t worry. You should first get yourself an appointment for routine gynecological examinations. Gynecologists will help identify if you have this disease. They may ask about your medical history and then conduct certain tests which include pelvic floor strength test and bladder function test. Better check it out ASAP!
