Full Feeling in Vagina

Has anyone ever had a full feeling in in their vagina? It feels like there is a ball inside. It has bothered me all day long. (And no, there isn't anything inside). Also, I can feel something that is hard, and above that, it feels like the bottom of a water balloon. I just had my period..this is my first day over it. I have given birth twice, the first time with difficulty. At my last annual, the doctor said my uterus was tipped back instead of forward. Has this happened to anyone else?

Re: Full Feeling in Vagina

and when you walk does it feel like something is ready to drop out???? i had a prolasped uterus, which is not uncommon after the birth of 3 children...the feelings i had was not an everyday thing but enough to worry me...i would go to the gyn and he would check me and say everything is fine...finally one day got a mirror and checked it when the feeling was there...went back to the gyn who checked again and said all was fine and i told him now way as i saw something with the mirror...so then he agreed the next time i had the feeling to get to his office immediately...so at the next feeling and visit he checked me and sure enough he could feel the uterus suspended very low...said that the uterus apparently was moving up and down due to contractions, gravity, etc, etc...options were the use of a pessary to push and hold it back into position or a hysterectomy as i was also exhibiting signs of endometriosis again (been treated in the past for that)...so i chose the hysterectomy and a bladder tack up at the same time...i also had a tilted uterus but i really do not remember if that was a causative factor as pregnancies will usually bring the uterus back into the correct position...best wishes and i hope you have a gyn that is patient with you like mine was and did not charge me for the visits when he checked and could not find anything...

Re: Full Feeling in Vagina

It could be a uterine fibroid tumor. These are fairly common and easily diagnosed with an ultrasound. High estrogen levels stimulate the growth of these tumors and certain birth control pills can be a causative factor. These tumors are rarely cancerous. They also grow slowly, so if this is something that changed in a rather short time, it is likely due to something else. The reason I know a little about these is that my 36 y/o g/f has two fibroid tumors, one the size of a golf ball and one the size of a tennis ball. Fibroid tumors are the most common reason for performing a hysterectomy. For more info on uterine fibroid tumors, just do a search using <A HREF="http://www.***********" TARGET=_blank>www.***********</A>

Re: Full Feeling in Vagina

Thank you both so much. I thought that the prolapsed uterus was a possibility, and it does seem to come and go, it has happened once before, several months ago. I didn't realize, though, that they could go up and down, so thank you for lettting me know about that. I have never heard of the tumors, but thank you for the heads up about that. Take care <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: Full Feeling in Vagina

Having a uterus that tips back (retroverted) is a variation of normal. It is nothing to worry about.

As others have said, Prolapse seems like it fits with your description. Prolapse can happen to women that have given birth....

Good luck!
