magnesium glycinate

what magnesium glycinate would you recommend for facilitating BM? (suffering from constipation since I'm pregnant again with rectocele grade 2).

What a journey...

Hello all - I am new to the forum and to the whole prolapse reality.
It has been a very painful, shocking, emotional, distressing and, at the same time, empowering and healing journey for me!

Stress is distracting

i have noticed that stress can definitely distract me from being mindful about my breath, and my posture.

supplement - placebo?

Around the same time that I made enough progress to actually feel better, I had begun taking a supplement. There were a 100 tablets, which I'm out of now. (Just realized that I wasn't even taking the recommended dose, 3/day - now that I have my reading glasses on). I bought it at a local health food store, because it said that it's a "unique support formula for healthy ligaments and tendons".
Some of it's standard Vitamins - Vit C, Vit B6, VitB12, Calcium, Zinc, and Manganese.
The other items are L-Proline, Shark Cartilage, Bromelain, Glycine, and Papain.

On the horizon.......

I am assuming that sometime soon Menopause will strike me.... She looms just on the horizon - Getting ever closer, lol

I have a Cystocele and likely other POPs that I do not really know about as the main problem noticed way back then was always the Cystocele... Which in the beginning was totally peeking out, and after the Posture work etc was back inside and only having a peek every now and then.....

Maybe my life isn't over?


This week I self-diagnosed in terror, realizing I have bulges coming from every direction.

Fears were confirmed when my GYN told me I have cystocele and rectocele. I am a 38-year-old mother of two.

This week I felt like my life is over... my vagina is destroyed... and it's doomed to get worse. I feel like I have a dislodged tampon sitting in my vagina and fear it will get worse with time.

Straddling a stool while sitting at desk


Hello -

I need to find different ways of sitting at my desk in an office. I've read many posts about straddling a stool while sitting at a desk. I can see how it would keep the upper part of the body in posture, however I thought the feet had to be flat on the floor and the legs at right angles. Can someone explain how this works?

Heavy bleeding & clots after sex

I'm new here, and have an urgent concern. I've had what I believe is a cystocele and rectocele to varying degrees for almost 8 years {diagnosed about 6 years ago but lots has changed since then}.

After multiple doctors telling me my only option was surgery I stopped seeing medical doctors and learned to manage things on my own {sort of}.

My prolapses have gotten significantly worse this summer, as I have become increasingly active. Tonight I played competitive sports for 2 hours. I felt great at the gym...

Secondary issues about to do me in...

It's been awhile since I've posted here because my significant prolapse issues without a uterus are not much effected by the usual WW approach, at least not for me, but I'm still managing with an ever present rectocele bulge that most of the time feels like a water balloon crowning a bit beyond my vaginal opening. I wear a V2 supporter all the time except when I'm sleeping at night. Anyway, this summer some secondary issues have reared their heads and are about to do me in. These include some significant hemorrhoids that are about to itch me to death!

Moment of Positivity

I am new to forum today. I am 6 years post-hysterectomy, low on estrogen, osteopenia, scoliosis, hip pain, and a month ago discovered cystouretroceles. Went to pelvic floor PT twice over a couple of weeks, did her Kegel exercises, which I now see may have made things worse - also rode my bicycle which enlarged the prolapses, and then again, they enlarged, possibly after my weight routine. Then I found this site. I am so grateful, but have been all-consumed with the emotional turmoil, shock of this all, and been researching online 24/7.
