I have logged on to find out about pelvic prolapse, the information out there is rather vague and targeted at menopausal woman.
I am 36 years old and newly diagnosed. I knew something was wrong 4 months postpartum after my 4 th baby. I went to two female doctors who one said why waste tax payers money to look for my pain, and second I was told pain is what happens when you have 4 kids take birth control! Well finally I went to a walk in clinic and they gave me a referral to a urologist and did some clinical testing.
I am a dentist and I find it hard to sit and this was my genuine complaint, if I am working. But now that I know I have prolapse there is not a lot of info for a young mom, I have alot of groceries to buy and lift, little toddlers to lift, and household laundry to lift. All the info seems geared to near menopausal woman who can rearrange their activites to not to lift. My 3 and 1 year old have been having tantrums because I explain mommy can not lift. I try and sit on the floor to hold them but they scream? I then read about surgery and I hit one site that had tragic out comes of pain post surgery: during intimacy, urinating and chronic low back reffered pain.
Any other young mothers out their in a similar situation or advice.
