prolapse and sex?

Anon_11417 posted:
I have a prolapse, I don't know if it is a vaginal one or a bladder one. I have had this for about 6 months. It does not bother me, it is just there sticking out of my vagina a little. But, my main question is, is it possible to still have sex with this prolapse? I am a little afraid to try having any sex in the event that it could cause a problem or an injury. Please let me know. Thank you.

This should be checked out by your GYN ASAP that is not normal to have.Please get it checked because it could cause bigger problems if not.

Dear Anon: smjpain is correct you should get it checked out. I concur it does sound like some type of prolapse--possibly a cystocele. Any prolapse will appear at its largest when you are standing or bearing down. It will be at its least when you are lying down (eg as in a regular pelvic exam or intercourse position). It will not harm any thing to have intercourse with a prolapse if it is still comfortable for you to have sex. Most partners would not be aware of a small to moderate cystocele.

Yours,
Jane
