Hi Anonymous

You need to contact your doctor. What you have is called a cervical prolapse. Sometimes after childbirth the muscles that hold your uterus up in your abdomen become weak and it kind of slides down your vagina. There are treatments for this, and you don't want to let it go to long. It is a pretty common problem. We have an article that explains it pretty well: http://www.empowher.com/providers/article/understanding-pelvic-organ-prolapse.

Please let us know if you have further questions, and get in touch with your gynecologist. Good luck.
