Ask A Doctor Question:
I have never had a problem with my pelvic floor after having 4 children while in upright positions. However, I gave birth to a 5th baby and was forced to lay on my back and it made my perineum strain. The OB cut my perineum and it weakened the muscle and tendons that support the pelvic floor. I did not give her permission to do it and it was not necessary for her to do it. Anyway, my vagina is twice the opening. When I walk I hear pop sounds from air being pushed out. I absolutely hate how it was left. To everyone out there; You can't deliver on your back! It closes the opening by 30% and immobilizes your tail bone. Horrible for the pelvic muscles. Learned the hard way, Can this be corrected? I also have some bladder prolapse and uterine prolapse. Thank you!
