My Child was born 6 months ago, since then Ive had a cervix prolapse, severe back ache & for the past 2 weeks a bloated stomach, Ive got to have a full repair on my cervix and wondered if all these symptoms are related to my prolapse and also if a natural child birth is possible if I do get pregnant again, I would appreciate any input as I am very nervous about the operation.

That's all doctors want to do is surgery! There are other options to try before you let them cut you open! Have you tried the Fembrace V-Brace? [website link deleted by moderator]
and look at it. It works, it really does, it doesn't fix the problem, but it eases the painful backaches and stomach aches and leg aches. Try everything you can before surgery. Good luck to you!

Cervical prolapse often happens in women who have had children. Have you been referred to a urologist? A urologist may recommend fitting you with a pessary (a disc that the doctor inserts that holds the cervix and uterus in place). The surgery you are talking about is also an option. Here is the Mayo Clinic's page on uterine prolapse. Be sure to click on the links down the side that include symptoms, causes, tests and treatment:


Here's a direct link to their treatments page:


Here is a detailed page on the use of pessaries, from the American Academy of Family Physicians:


And here are diagrams of two kinds of passaries in their place in the body:

This is an article from one of EmpowHer's sponsors (Ethicon, which is a Johnson & Johnson company) that discusses some of their products used to repair prolapse and what to expect (note, the links on this page are also theirs):


And here's a good explanation of pregnancy with cervical prolapse:


Does this information help?

Why does your doctor think surgery is the best option for you?

Please do not have surgery I have had a cervical prolapse matter of fact I've had several try vaginal exercises they'll help you try pelvis tilts x 10 to 30 a day/ try sitting on your toilet and stopping the flow of urine if you can do this exercise that's good. you can do these exercises standing/lying down and sitting. Just please take it from me, I've had so many surgeries including female weakness surgeries which are rectoceles, cystoceles and Enteroceles...someone who cares christiangurl
