Retroverted uterus, retocele, and hemorrhoids

Hi everyone,

Rectocele Traps Mensus

My question is one I haven't found in searching. So I hope I am in the right forum section.

Quickly my question: Is it normal with pelvic prolapses to have mensus flow stopped and pooled causing clots when a rectocele is present? Or do I have other things that I don't know about probably going on too?

Now for my background:

I am 42 with a long history of pelvic organ problems and am overweight and trying to lose weight.

Menopause Maybe

I wanted to share a recent experience that I had last year, and especially the end of the year, my peri-menopausal symptoms seemed to be getting out of control again. I admit that part of it was a little backsliding with my diet and a return to some pretty serious constipation. My breasts hurt all the time, I bled heavily and spotted for several days afterwards, had serious side pain from ovulating, high anxiety, and constant hemorrhoids.

Incontinence & Prolapse

Hello WW friends,
I'm having incontinence and I'm doing Christine's program. Recently I read that it's helpful to urinate "teaspoonful by teaspoonful" to gain awareness of the muscle that needs to be trained.
I'd love to hear your opinion on that.
Thank you for your support,

Correct Breathing

Hi, wonderful ladies,
I'me doing the WW Exercise Bundle and I'm a bit confused about 2 different breathing instructions. In the Fire Breathing we're breathing in moving the belly out and we're breathing out pulling the belly up.
In the first wheel exercise program the instruction for the pelvis circle exercise (knees and arms on the floor) I understood to breath out when we move the pelvic down (which would be also out) and breath in when we move up.
So my question is what the correct breathing is.
Thank you for helping me out here.

What may the future hold

Hello, I’m fairly new to this whole scenario, I’m 38 and was diagnosed with a ‘moderately large’ cystocele in September 2018. Since then I have found myself a WW practitioner and purchased some of the learning material, exercises and 101 first aid. I’ve applied many WW protocols to my daily life and am slowly reaping the benefits of these. In fact this past month was my most comfortable since diagnosis. Some days, I feel 99% symptom free which is very encouraging.


Hello I have been diagnosed with atrophy . I can’t and don’t wish to use prescribed remedies that contain hormones etc and find that whatever I use in the way of moisturisation irritates . The only thing that seems to give me any relief and comfort is the honey and acv. The only trouble is that it frequently gives me a fungal infection . Something like jock itch . The acv helps but doesn’t seem to do much until I cease using the honey which I have to do until the infection clears up but not long after I go back on the honey it seems to start all over again .

Hi! Can POP mimic UTI symptoms? -(Newbie) :)

Thankful to have found this site yesterday; I truly appreciate this kind of approach, and have been reading around on the posts and am looking forward to the videos.

Bladder prolapse worsening?

Hi, I am pre-menopausal and had a bladder prolapse diagnosed a year ago. My doctor referred me to a physiotherapist but of course this was simply to train me to do Kegels which did not help. I have been doing the WW First Aid for Prolapse exercises on and off last year and then every day for the last 2 months, as well as consciously working on my posture all the time. I had a bad cough for several weeks in December and this worsened the prolapse and it hasn't really gone back to where it was.

Recent prolapse

The prolapse seemed to happen all at once about two weeks ago.

I’ve watched the very helpful video course “First Aid for Prolapse” and will now watch it again. I’ve sent for the 2008 book.

I don’t know if the slick “ball” that protrudes from time to time is bladder or uterus. I’m not sure it makes a difference to know. Some days are worse than others it seems.

I have changed my posture, do lots of pelvic tilts and some yoga, push everything back”up” and back from time to time, and got small pillows for the now beloved curve in my back for the car.
