For many women, diagnosing a prolapse is not always as straightforward or speedy as it can be. This also means that recovery is delayed and discomfort and embarrassment continue for far longer than they need to.
Here at The Pelvic Clinic, we want to give as many women as possible the fast and effective relief from uterus problems that will allow them to enjoy their freedom again.
Because of its many and various symptoms, a uterine prolapse can at first appear to be a different problem entirely, with uterus problems being the last on a long list of things most women would want to consider as the culprit.
For example, one of the common symptoms of uterine prolapse bleeding is the kind of bleeding or spotting from the vagina, which can also be mistaken for an irregular or regular period.
There may also be a feeling of pulling or stretching in the groin, which may be mistaken for the strain from exercise. Painful intercourse, too, may be put down to stress or psychological problems.
Constipation and incontinence which can also result from severe uterine prolapse may be self diagnosed as signs of stress, ageing or dietary problems.
With each of these symptoms, seeking medical help can be the last thing on a woman’s mind, and instead she may continue to believe she has several minor physical or mental health problems rather than one more severe – but treatable – uterus problem.
To discover that each of these symptoms can be caused by a severe uterine prolapse may at first be an intimidating thought, but this is not the sentence it once was.
