What is a Prolapse? Does it need surgery? Will it get worse?
Do you have symptoms of heaviness, dragging, a feeling like something is falling out, low abdominal or back pain? Are you feeling a bulge or change in the shape of your vagina or anus? Have you been diagnosed with a prolapse already but are not sure what that means, or how much it really will effect your life? Have you been told, or have you read, that you must never lift, run or jump again?
