Hello,
I would recommend seeing an ob/gyn - why - you probably have what is known as POP - Pelvic Organ Prolapse - this occurs from your uterus and other pelvic organ pressure causing your cervix/uterus 'prolapse' through and into the vagina. Also, your bladder can prolapse through and this is called a cystocele, and your rectum can also fall through the vagina and this is called a rectocele. There are many non-surgical things you can do such as kegel exercises, physical therapy and even using a pessary. There are also surgical procedures that you can do too. Your ob/gyn will do a complete pelvic exam to find out exactly what is going on. PLus, your doctor might do cystometrics to check your bladder out along with a urinanalysis and a urine culture.
I hope this helps, please click on ACCEPT and thank you for your question.

what is a pessary?
Hello,
A pessoary is an object that comes in various shapes such as a cube, a donut, or 20 other different sizes and shapes and this is placed in the vagina to hold your bladder and other organs 'up'. I hope this helps and if satisfied, please click on ACCEPT. Thank you

cant they tell if i have pop through the cat scan? that my organs have fallen and which ones?
Hello,
Scans such as ultrasound, MRI, or CT scan (cat scan) will NOT help - you need a physical/ pelvic exam by an ob/gyn.
