Closing of the forum

I just got the email about the closing of the forum...

I do not post on here much but I was very saddened to hear that it will be closing as I do still come here to read every now and then and I know what a great suport this forum has been to so many people over the years.

When I got here my youngest was about 2 or 3 years old - And is now over 17yrs old.....

Hysterectomy story

Hi everyone,

Bad prolapse

Hi, I have posted before. My prolapse is so bad. Uterus is out, cervix down. I tried two different pessaries but was very uncomfortable. Is anyone familiar with the gelhorn pessary. Because my prolapse is so heavy, I was wondering if this would do better. I am 70 years old and do not want surgery, but am very miserable. Any users if the gelhorn pessary? Many thanks.

Been feeling great lately

Hi lovely ladies of Whole Woman - it's been a little over 2 years since my last baby and my prolapse and I've been feeling so great that I went ahead and got pregnant again!
I had been wanting a 3rd child and thinking about it and since I have been pretty symptom free, and 2 years had passed post baby, I felt confident in going forward...
and then as soon as I peed on the stick and saw that second line - fear!!! what have I done? can we handle a 3rd (at 40)? will my body be ok??



I've done 3 years of physiotherapy with little to no results. I am so excited to report just one month in with the exercises and whole woman posture stress incontinence is almost not a problem at all anymore. I am thrilled! I also just love standing tall, I feel more confident being given this permission to carry myself in such a loving, strong, empowered way! Hooray for WWP!

Not sure what to do next

Hi ladies, I've posted before about a developing hip pain and I'm really at a point now where I dont know where to turn next. I have been doing the posture for nearly three years and over the last year have been noticing a pain in my left hip. Not a pain that stops me doing things but an ache that has certainly become more frequent. It is a pain that moves. I believe it began in my low back but that has all but gone but I just cannot shift it from my hip. I finally gave in and saw a GP recently.

Possible Prolapse

I honestly had no idea this issue existed until I saw it with my own eyes. I believe I have a Prolapsed Uterus and my mind is all over the place. I am in my early 40s not in menopause.. but this is my situation. A little while ago I felt the need to lay down a bit too much and had some abdominal discomfort brushed it off until I saw unusual spotting.. a large dot when I had wiped. My period wasn't due for another 3 weeks and I thought perhaps I cut myself from or something. I decided to check and saw nothing on my inner thigh area and something told me check my vagina..

Getting started


I stumbled upon the Ww after diagnosis of pop in uterine, anterior and posterior. Suddenly I could not walk or sit without feeling as though my uterus was coming down and very heavy uncomfortable feel. The only comfortable position is lying down flat and swim/floating.

Tired nana

I have been on this forum for just over 4 years and have kept my prolapse under control.... till now. I have been babysitting my 1 1/2 year old granddaughter and picking her out of the cot and putting her in six times a day has put a big strain on me. I have constant heaviness and bulging daily. I try and get down on all fours, do the legs shaking while bending etc, having trouble with posture, so tired all the time. I am 60 next month and this babysitting is exhausting. Any suggestions please?

PelGrip Exerciser?

Hello everyone. Been awhile since I've been on here.....just trying to stay healthy and exercise. I was on Facebook this morning and saw this exerciser and wanted to see if anyone has used it. It's called PelGrip Exerciser. It's a round circle (sort of like a pilates circle) that you squeeze between your legs. It's supposed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. I'm kind of scared to try new things unless someone else has used it and got good results. Thanks.
