I am three months post partum and my cervix is still low - at my vaginal opening
. Did anyone else experience this and if so, any helpful hints as to how to get it to go back up?
For the first month post partum, my cervix felt heavy and low (to be expected). The second month I couldn't really feel it and it felt like everything was healing just fine. But, during month three, I can feel the heaviness again and sometimes it really feels like it might hang outside of me. When I sneeze or cough, I either have to clench super tight or hold myself there. So far, I have been doing what I call "extreme kegels," but what's funny is that it actually seems to be making it feel heavier - what?! And when I don't do the kegels, most of the time it feels better. I am in the process of trying to see a physical therapist whose specialty is the pelvic floor, but until then, I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts. I mostly feel like it's just going to take some time to go back to where it was and I did have a low cervix to begin with (but definitely not this low - I could never feel it before). But, a part of me does worry about what options I have if it doesn't go back.
P.S. Also, any tips for a stubborn hemmorhoid? Do these go away by themselves? I feel like the only way mine is going to leave is if I never go #2 again... EVER.
I can't stand feeling like I'm broken with all this stuff going on
But I do forget about it all when I look at my beautiful babe
Thanks for you help!!
