    I was told the same. You can wear it all through the pregnancy, but I was also told that my doctor found most women felt better in pregnancy as the uterus pulled every thing up as it grew. Mine felt worse with DD2, but I didn't have a pessary in at that time as I wasn't seeing my doctor back then.

    OP... My doctor also said that you keep it in during sex and that you don't have to take it out when TTC. Did your doctor tell you to have it out while TTC or do you prefer to have it out?

    Red face Recovering from Prolapse !!!

    Hi Girls

    What a journey since I was last online!!!

    I bought a pelvic floor exerciser device online out of the UK - best $200 I have EVER spent!!! I also bought a Pelvic Floor exercises DVD online too. Lets just say I have been only using it for 2 weeks (every day both device and doing the pelvic floor video exercises) and have gone from feeling my prolapse bulging right at my entrance and really having no connection/feeling between my entrance/pelvic floor right through to my navel/stomach) to barely noticing I have a prolapse at all - it is truly UNBELIEVABLE. On top of that I did a really full on strict detox for the whole month of May and so ate incredibly healthy too. I just did my first private pilates class this morning - have not been for a year and my instructor was pretty surprised as what has also happened since I am gaining pelvic floor + core strength is my separated stomach muscles seem to have improved too as I can engage my whole pelvic floor through to my navel i.e. I have sensation where I have had nothing for around 3yrs

    I am just absolutely gob smacked - I joined another website / forum and all the woman were raving about this device and video and I thought I have nothing to lose and I have gained so much. I cannot believe no health professional I have seen has ever recommended these treatment pathways...I know I have a long way to go and may never fully fully recover from the prolapse but I am about 60 - 80% improved for the 1st time since birthing 3 yrs ago!

    I am not wearing a pesary ring at present and feeling pretty good.

    Would love to hear from anyone and happy to chat!

    Anga, great to hear u are doing so well.

    Just quickly do u just have a prolapsed bladder? I have a grade 2 prolapse of uterus and bladder and partial bowel prolapse and am in constant pain and looking at needing surgery. Wondered if the product u used would help me, apparently my case is pretty rare tho as I went into early labour as my muscles just have no strength :-(

    YAY Ayla! I am so glad you have had success with the hab-it dvd and kegel8 exerciser!!

    I am still waiting for my dvd, it seems to have gotten lost or something!(ordered it through amazon) but am looking so forward to using it after your success!

    I have a different estim and am using that occasionally too, under the guidance of my physio!

    look forward to hearing more from you!

    Hi there

    I pretty much have a prolapsed bladder but maybe other bits prolapsed too.

    Went for a run this morning - not good - dont think high impact does any favours to a prolapse - i was feeling so good and wanted a good workout and oopppss...can feel my prolapse oh well will just have to stick to my walking whoich I love anyway...

    Not too sure about whether this device can help you mumwannabe??? Worth emailing Kegel8 directly - they were great with my questions.

    Cheers

    Default prolapse recovery

    Hi I am just new to this site. Just wondering how you were going with everything now? I have had four children, and after the birth of my first baby ended up with both a cystocele and rectocele, so bladder and bowel prolapse. I was devestated. I work in womens health and although was aware of the problem never thought it would happen to me and because i had never experienced it myself did not really understand what women with a prolapse went through on both emotional and physical levels. My ob aslo said "oh dont worry it should be fine in a few months" I knew from my work in gynaecological surgery that this was crap but also new exactly where i could go for extra help. I am so suprised by the big cloud that covers this issue and how hard it was to get information regarding prolapse and ways of overcoming the impact it has on daily life. I work in the industry so resources and access to specialists was readily available, I would have hated to try and navigate everything without that help.

    I hope you are feeling alot better and if you have any questions or need to chat I will be available. I have a pessary ring in at the moment and it has been a lifesaver for me. It comes with minor problems but nothing compared to that awful dragging/falling out sensation.

    Take care

    Rachel

    Hi ladies
    I've just found out I have a prolapsed bladder too, after the difficult birth of my first bubba last year. Apparently it is a moderate prolapse, my doc said quite a significant prolapse for someone my age Surgery is apparently almost cetainly on the agenda, but I want to have at least 1 more bub first. Got a referral for physio and will see how that goes. I'm glad to hear of your success Anga, gives me hope. Thank-you everyone for sharing, it helps to not feel so yuck when you know you're not the only one!
