What Should You Look For To Know If Your Uterus Is Healthy?

Not knowing the signs and symptoms of a healthy uterus can be a dangerous game. But this doesn’t mean that you should give up and just try to ignore any pain or discomfort you might feel.

What Are the Symptoms of a Uterine Prolapse?

Though many women experience the symptoms of a uterine prolapse at some point in their lives, it’s important to be aware of the signs so you can quickly seek medical attention if necessary. The most common symptom is an abnormal vaginal bleeding, but it’s possible for a woman to experience other symptoms as well.

Signs of a Uterine Prolapse in Pregnancy

There are many signs of a uterine prolapse, but the most common is a feeling of “spinning and pulling.” Other signs to watch for include the following: Urinary Tract Infection: If after urination you notice that urine comes out with blood or mucus, it could be an indication that your urethra is pinched. Bleeding in Between Periods: If you have any bleeding not related to your period, that may be a sign of an underlying cause. Pain: Pain during sex can be another sign of uterine prolapse, especially if it’s accompanied by a vaginal discharge.

When Should You See A Doctor?

You should see a doctor when you experience the following:

· Pain during menstruation and cramps

· LBD (Lower Back Discomfort)

· Uterine Contractions that feel like they are coming more often than they used to

· Shortening of your menstrual cycle

How Do I Know If My Uterus Is Healthy?

A healthy uterus is one that can be felt easily when pressure is applied to the abdomen. It’s also a healthy, firm feeling, not a hard or hard to squeeze sensation. The uterus should feel like a full, round, heavy ball that hangs down from the pelvis. Some people may experience uterine contractions during their period which can be felt by pressing between their legs and then releasing. If your uterus is healthy you will feel these contractions at regular intervals during your menstrual cycle.

When to Take Action

The symptoms of a healthy uterus are often subtle and suggested by other signs, but there are some identifiable indicators that you should watch for.
