Urge incontinence


Hi all
I sometimes struggle to get to toilet in time to urinate. Sometimes fine, other times just make it.
I do whole woman kegels, just wondering if squats & lunges would help? Any other suggestions welcomed. Thanks

Kneeling Chairs

Hello everyone. I'm new here and happened to come across this forum while looking up the different ways people who sit for extended hours deal with persistent lower back pain issues.

I'd be happy for anyone to tell me their personal experience with a kneeling chair. I've been hearing all this buzz about them lately and not sure if it's all hype or if they can really help with lower back pain.

Your help is more than appreciated!

How to blow up a balloon without worsening prolapse?

Hi, I did a search on this topic and found a mention of somebody having trouble after blowing up many balloons, but the topic wasn't really the focus of the thread. Since using WW posture, I have trouble blowing up balloons and when I do manage to blow up a balloon I can feel my prolapse worsen. Is there a safe way to brace or position to hold while blowing up a balloon? It is something that comes up every so often when you have kids, so I'd love to know how I might do it safely. Thanks!


I'm confused! Do I always draw air into my body through my nose? And always let air out through my mouth. Why?
Do I sometimes point my tail up away from my body? Or sometimes tuck it back under my body.
Could I do the Elder Prolapse video more than once a day/ Maybe 3 or 4 times a day? I wish I had seen this group of women sooner than I did. If I had started a couple of years ago my body would be so much better. Well, on the other hand, I am thankful we met when we did.

Vaginal honey and chemo induced vulva inflammation

I started chemo 3 days ago and last night found I had inflamed vulva and looks like yeast, although mild. I bought local honey from church with their own hives and started using it as well as spray of grocery store acv and filtered water. How often is safe to apply this? I have uterine prolapse and normally get great support from a cube pessary but I did not wish to try to wear it today. I had no issue with vulva health prior to chemo. Never needed anything and was secreting normally. Please let me know if I should apply the honey more often.

Waterpill creates insontinence

First of all this is a wonderful informational site. I have learned so much. Thank you all for listening. I have prolapse and with help here and with information and videos I am doing better. My problem with incontinence is that I do pretty well and plan to buy the Incontinence video next but when l I have to take a water pill it is awful. Does anyone know how to get water from out of your system without taking a water pill? It is so harsh and I have accidents when I take the pill. Otherwise I do pretty well, as I said. Thanks for any suggestions.

Watch your e-mails!

Hello Whole Women - This morning I had two new WW e-mails, and one of them went to my Spam folder. If you've read "April Whole Woman Announcements", you know that WW has made some changes in their system recently.

Please check your Spam folder and if you see any WW e-mails there, PLEASE be sure to mark them as "not spam". The web is very sensitive to these things, and if the powers that be think that Lanny and Christine are spammers, it can make life very difficult for them. Thanks!! - Surviving

PPH Surgery for hemorrhoids?

Hello, I have been living with grade 3 prolapsed internal hemorrhoids for a while now. When I have a bowel movement the prolapse comes out of my rectum at least an inch in a circular shape. I have had banding done twice and had over 9 treatments by a naturopathic Doctor at a Hemorrhoid clinic with the Keesey treatment. These treatments helped some immediately but lasted only a few days, then the prolapse came back. I have had rectal bleeding from this problem for over 10 years. A year ago I saw a surgeon who said I need a PPH surgery (Procedure for Prolapse of Hemorrhoids).

Getting worse

Hello Friends,
After several months of doing the exercises (3-4 X/week) from the streaming video “First Aid for Prolapse”, going for long Fibonacci walks (3-4 X/week), and discontinuing oblique postures/exercises in my yoga and weight lifting (2X/week), my POP is worse. It’s always hanging out now, even in the mornings.
