    Collapsed/Prolapsed Uterus
    An_193299 posted:
    In 2000 I had surgery to remove uterine fibroids. My doctor told me that she discovered during the surgery that my uterus had collapsed - perhaps from the weight/size of the fibroids. She went on to tell me that the ligaments that normally held the uterus in place were no longer there so they had suspended mine in place by attaching it to my other organs. I had never heard of anything like this before. I was 24 years old at the time and had one child.
    My husband & I would now like to have another child. I am concerned about how 'secure' my uterus may be 'hanging in there'. I have a preconception appt coming up but this has been on my mind & want to make sure my new gyn takes this seriously since it's been 10 years.
    Comments... suggestions?
