Toileting

This question is embarrassing and rather gross. Nevertheless I'm asking it and would appreciate any input from other ladies facing something similar. Due to my rather profound prolapse, I find it difficult to wipe properly after a bowel movement, as the prolapse seems to get in the way. Any suggested remedies? I also have to wear panty liners due to discharge (mucus) from the prolapse, with occasional spotting, probably from the prolapse tissue chaffing against my underwear. I have not had surgery, nor do I wish to have any.

hip turnout - bending

I'm going to put this in the hip forum since I have a specific question about hip turnout....
I got the Hips program recently (yay!!) and I admit I've only watched the first few modules so far but I have a question and don't want to wait until I have time to finish the videos.
I'm just starting to learn about the hip joint - it's been enlightening. I don't have hip pain (yet) but I do have a left hip that clicks so I thought I might as well benefit from Christine's knowledge to keep any future problems at bay.

If i don't notice my moms prolapse while toiletting her, does this indicate an improvement

Forum:

Hello
This is a technical question.
I don't feel my moms prolapsed bladder at the moment while i am toiletting her. If the dropped bladder is not exposed, does this mean the muscles are getting stronger and the body is doing better to pulling the pevlic organs back to where they need to be? At least a little? Or does it mean that her bowels or her intestines aren't filled up yet and pushing everything downward yet.

MeganP27 - immediate results with prolapse!

I have only been doing Christine's exercises consistently for about a week so far. And you know what? It has made the difference between me wearing a pessary and not!!! You see, I recently went to the OB/gyn because my prolapse had gotten bad enough to where I felt I now needed a pessary. : ( Years ago my (very prominent and well respected) OB/gyn told me there was nothing I could do to stop my prolapse from progressing. I believed her. Years and years go by and yes, my prolapse does indeed worsen.

Pee On/Pee Off Exercise

Could someone explain to me what the Pee On/Pee Off exercise supposed to do for you? I don't see what it has to do with peeing and just don't get it. What is it supposed to be changing? Has anyone had success in doing this exercise?

Thanks.

miscarriage

currently going through a natural miscarriage (4th pregnancy in 5 years, 2nd miscarriage). I also have a rectocele grade 2 and was wondering how much time is recommended to let the body heal from a first trimester miscarriage before trying to conceive again?

Second Pregnancy & Prolapse

Good Morning All,

Umbilical Hernia & Diastasis recti

Hello everyone,

I have just been diagnosed with a umbilical hernia after experinecing sudden pain & a lump while carrying something heavy.
I'm also currently receiving treatment from a physiotherapist for my diastasis recti. I have a stage 2 uterine prolapse.
I have had 8 children. (I need to update my username!)
I'm wondering what the current belief is surrounding umbilcal hernia repair & also the use of mesh to complete the repair. Is it as dangererous as the mesh used in prolapse surgery? Are there dangers that the medical team may not tell me about?

Advil subsitute

Forum:

Not sure if this is the Forum Topic that this should be in but I figured it was a good guess as I'm looking for a natural food/tea to use instead of Advil.

Halloween Sale

ATTENTION...

Scary Savings!

Holidays like Halloween come around every year and companies everywhere, in the US anyway, see a great excuse to hold a sale.

Corny as it may be, who are we at Whole Woman to fight this time honored business practice?

This year though, I have decided to do something I have never done before.
