    Default Vaginal prolapse

    I'm a 37 year old mum of two with vaginal propose, all the prolapses. I'm having such a hard time getting a referral for a urogynecologist, my gp has told me to find one i'd like to see and she'll refer me but I can't find any? I'm in Sydney Australia and was hoping someone on here may be able to recommend one. Google just brings up gynocologists, even if the site mentions prolopses, but I can't seem to actually find a urogynecologist which apparently is the dr to see for prolapses? I've been on other other forums and everyone says not to see a gynocologist, as they don't have as much experience with prolopses? I'd appreciate any help with this.

    Maybe see a gynae to get a referral to the appropriate person?

    Thanks, I guess I could. It's a bit frustrating though since I'll have to pay a lot to see one specialist to get a referral for another and then pay him too lol

    Go see a pelvic floor physio first, or you will probably just end up paying to see a urogyn or gyn, just to be referred straight back to a physio anyway. Also, they might be able to tell you about a good urogynocologist. Good luck.

    Maybe try a women's health physio? They may be able to give you the name of a urogyne and some exercises to do while you're waiting too see them?

    I saw a continence nurse with mine. She checked to make sure I was exercising correctly, then I saw a gyno who diagnosed it as a stage 2. And just said to keep doing the exercises. So far so good.
