Customer Question

I just pulled out a dry tampon. Ouch:( I already have a cystocele. Did I make my cystocele worse? Thank you. I am 59 years old and in menopause. However, I recently started wearing the CombiPatch. I have been having periods every 15 days. It was heavy enough to put in a tampon, I thought. I wanted to take out the tampon before I peed (after 4 hours). It was dry with almost no blood, and I am worried I made my cystocele worse??

This is Dr. David

it would be very very unlikely you worsened your cystocele.

after menopause, you shouldn't be bleeding, even if you are using the combipatch.

you should see your doctor and get an ultrasound of your uterus.

you don't have to worry about your cystocele.

are you doing kegel exercises? this can help your cystocele.
