If the ligaments and muscles which support your uterus become weak, the uterus can sag and fall into the vaginal canal, causing a uterine prolapse. This can cause a feeling of heaviness or pressure in your vagina or pelvis. Your uterus may also bulge out and, in some cases, may protrude from the vaginal opening. Look out for pain in the lower back, discomfort during sex, urinary problems, and excess vaginal discharge.
Prolapsed uterus is common among women after a certain age. Age, race, and genetics could put you at risk for uterine prolapse. Repeated pregnancies and vaginal births are other causes. Various stressors and injuries to the pelvic muscles and even obesity are found to increase the chances of uterine prolapse.
Squatting isn’t the modern way to poop, but it's something that's second nature to people in some parts of the world for centuries. With your body positioned more ergonomically for bowel movement, you may be able to strain less, finish pooping faster, and empty bowels completely. You may even be able to prevent constipation, hemorrhoids, and a host of colorectal problems if you squat instead of sit.
Unexpected spotting or bleeding between periods can be worrying besides being most annoying. It is important to pin down the problem quickly – especially if you’re pregnant or you’re at risk of problems like sexually transmitted infections, PCOS, or even cancer. You may also just experience spotting due to an intrauterine device, birth control pills, or an implantation of a pregnancy. But it is better to put your mind at rest and get treated if it is something more serious.
