I am a 28 year old who gave birth to my first child 8 months ago. After a complicated delivery I am left with stage 2 to 3 uterine prolapse, rectocele, and cystocele. My symptoms are very mild and do not interfere with any of my daily activities, except that my cervix falls down when I do anything strenuous. I have an appointment with my gyno this week, but would like to have more information about treatment options before I see her. I have done some research and it looks like some of the options are: vaginal pessary, hysterectomy (not doing this!), and a surgery that can suspend your uterus using your own tissue, and/or with mesh. My main concern is that I want to have more children and don't know if this is possible in my current state or after a repair. I also can't find a lot of good information about pessaries or what it is like to wear one. Any help/advice/insight would be greatly appreciated.
