Aunt Vadge: is my womb falling out?

Aunt Vadge, I’m 48-years-old, and am worried as I have noticed that I have something hanging out of the entrance to my vagina at the top! It moves back if I push it in, but comes straight back out again! It’s pretty ugly! Is my womb falling out?

Yours,
Falling

Hi Falling,

You really do need to be examined. Anything dangling or hanging out of your vagina needs to be inspected ASAP. I don’t know if your womb is falling out, but you should know if it is!

You could be suffering from low oestrogen conditions that cause your vaginal or pelvic tissue, which is really responsive to oestrogen, to start to collapse a little bit. You may be suffering a prolapse. Either way, you definitely need to be examined as soon as possible.

You want to preserve your insides!

Write anytime.

Warmest regards,
Aunt Vadge
