Rectocele - Reassurance needed

Hello everyone,

Red Clover Tea

Hi folks. Seven years ago when I was 55, Christine and this website turned my life around after losing my husband to glioblastoma and being drop-kicked into menopause. The Whole Woman re-education about my body and implementation of the exercise program in my daily routine ended hot flashes and incontinence. I have been using red clover tea since the beginning of this journey and swear by its phytoestrogen power. I will be backpacking the Grand Canyon in December where boiling water and carrying a quart of tea will not be possible.

Clarification on Back Exercises (Goddess Belly)


I am working on the goddess belly work out and some of the yoga. Having to move slowly due to real muscle weakness. I also had to start working with a chiropractor to re-align everything. I had so many ribs and my hip out of place that trying to adjust my posture was very painful.
Anyway, back to the point. When Christine does the exercises on her back, like scissors or lifting the knees toward chest, is the lumbar curved? My back tends to flatten and i cannot tell if I am doing them correctly.


I haven't posted in forever as have gotten sidetracked dealing with cdiff for nearly 2 years now...
I have both a cystocele and rectocyle and since cdiff the hemorrhoids are prolapsed...
I have A constant feeling of fullness in my rectum..relieved only by bearing down and passing gas or any stool that might be left in there..I cant function as it is so debilitating. anyone else experience this or have any advice? thank you. susan

hard surface chairs


I recently discovered that sitting on hard surface chairs which I do because of the whole woman posture but, if I am sitting on them for long periods of time it will irritate my urethra, don't know if anyone else has experienced this but just putting it out there. I know this to be true cause I had keeping a log of what I was doing and when the irritation was coming on.

magnesium glycinate

what magnesium glycinate would you recommend for facilitating BM? (suffering from constipation since I'm pregnant again with rectocele grade 2).

What a journey...

Hello all - I am new to the forum and to the whole prolapse reality.
It has been a very painful, shocking, emotional, distressing and, at the same time, empowering and healing journey for me!

Stress is distracting

i have noticed that stress can definitely distract me from being mindful about my breath, and my posture.

supplement - placebo?

Around the same time that I made enough progress to actually feel better, I had begun taking a supplement. There were a 100 tablets, which I'm out of now. (Just realized that I wasn't even taking the recommended dose, 3/day - now that I have my reading glasses on). I bought it at a local health food store, because it said that it's a "unique support formula for healthy ligaments and tendons".
Some of it's standard Vitamins - Vit C, Vit B6, VitB12, Calcium, Zinc, and Manganese.
The other items are L-Proline, Shark Cartilage, Bromelain, Glycine, and Papain.

On the horizon.......

I am assuming that sometime soon Menopause will strike me.... She looms just on the horizon - Getting ever closer, lol

I have a Cystocele and likely other POPs that I do not really know about as the main problem noticed way back then was always the Cystocele... Which in the beginning was totally peeking out, and after the Posture work etc was back inside and only having a peek every now and then.....
