heaviness in the vagina and leaking urine, not sure about the 1st one. just said a prolapse

Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort.

Well, these symptoms are indicative of Uterine prolapse.
Mild uterine prolapse that doesn't cause any symptoms usually does not need any treatment.

Sometimes, with moderate prolapse one may have symptoms such as back pain, problems having a bowel movement or urinating or even sexual problems.

Yes, associated Mild Vaginal bleeding and Increased vaginal discharge is normal. In case, bleeding is heavy, then you should be immediately seen by doctor.

Your doctor may suggest a vaginal pessary , It is a device that goes in the vagina and helps hold your uterus in place. Sometimes surgery can be done to fix weak pelvic muscles.

Only in severe cases, hysterectomy is required.
Mild bleeding is normal.

I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for clinical evaluation and get it managed.

Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

I am Doctor Thomas, double board certified US doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will start by asking you a question or by giving you an answer based on your information provided so far. I will be here to follow up with any further questions or concerns you might have.

In fact new bleeding needs an immediate exam.
you have had a change, so go in now.
Not simply if the bleeding gets heavy.

You need to follow up with your doctor as more bleeding than usual can be from multiple factors.

If you have been menopausal, this can also account for this.

So can thyroid, liver , kidney problems.....

Fibroids, etc....

An ultrasound needs to be done if not done.
