Q. i am 21 years old and have been told i have a prolasped bladder. i have one child and was asked by my GP if i had finished having my family, i am not. i was told nothing could be done for me as i want to have more children, i am in extream pain after weeing and can not laugh or cough without leaking. can u give me any advice? after giving birth to my daughter i had a caphiter to drain my bladder and was wondering if that could have anything to do with my problem now?,
A. Thanks. The chances are that your pelvic floor was “damaged” during childbirth, I dont think it is the catheter you had put in, itself but having the catheter could be a reflection of difficulty in passing urine at the time. At 21 yrs, you may have to find a way of achieving a stronger pelvic floor muscle, possibly through pelvic floor exercises. If you choose to have surgery now, you may then have to have your further childbirth by Caesarean Section and the risk of it happenign is there, just because you are pregnant. If it is realy bad, you can use alternative options to surgery – like vaginal pessaries for prolapse.
