Symptoms of a falling of the vagina:

This process develops slowly. Though swelling of a wall of a vagina sometimes makes a frightening impression, it not a dangerous state. It just creates considerable inconveniences, preventing the normal sexual intercourses, and it is difficult to adapt to it.

The falling of the vagina, depending on localization of the dropping-out site and degree of swelling, can be followed also by a prolapse of a bladder, rectum and uterus. Loss of a front wall of a vagina is most often observed. At the same time there is a feeling as though in anticipation of a vagina there is an egg. The size of the bulked-up or fallen wall can reach the size of a fist or even grapefruit.

Sometimes because of a falling of the vagina it is difficult to hold urine during sneezing, laughter or cough. At a prolapse of the rectum there can be disturbances at removal of contents of intestines.

Use pessaries. In the absence of indications for surgical interventions the doctor can appoint to you use of a pessary - the device manufactured of plastic or rubber and reminding by the form a diaphragm. It is located in a vagina to prevent loss of fabrics. Pessaries can be changed in each several months. They are safe though at their use there can sometimes be an unpleasant smell or small sores.
