Has anyone been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse after a vaginal delivery? I got diagnosed after my first child when I was only 27! Now I am 34 and pregnant with my second baby. I was just wondering if a vaginal birth was still possible or wise after POP. I don't see my doc for another month and I forgot to ask about it.
Yes ladies of all ages get prolapse and this can happen after delivery as well. Ladies do go on to have further children when they have prolapse.
Remember to tell your Dr about this and nurse plus Gyne. Urogynes are prolapse Drs but you will probably want to see a Gyne since you are pregnant. Learn as much as you can about prolapse and ask lots of questions as well. Your GP may not know a lot about prolapse so make sure you see all your pregnancy care staff including your nurse and Gyne to let them know about your concerns and for them to be aware you have prolapse etc., Some ladies with Uternine prolapse are given a pessary to support the cervix but this may not be necessary for you.
Congratulations on your second pregnancy. Come back to us with any further questions that you have
As far as I have heard from other ladies there are differing opinions on this. I would speak to your Urogynecologist about this as they are POP specialists, especially if it is really important for you to have a vaginal delivery. Also you could speak to a womens physiotherapist and get help with PT at a suitable time after the birth as well. If you get all the information now, early on in your pregnancy this could help you to make the decision as you go along rather than feel rushed.
I hope all goes well with your pregnancy.
