My name is Kristina, and I was inspired to create this site when I discovered I had cycstocele, rectocele, and severe uterine prolapse at age 27 after the birth of my first son.
What I have learned is that POP (Pelvic Organ Prolapse) can affect women of all ages and sizes. All though you might have some health factors or unusual vaginal births that might put you at a greater risk for having a POP, you might not have any of those risk factors in your life and still result in a POP. It is estimated that 75% of women will be affected by some degree of a POP at some point in their lives. Depending on the severity of your POP many woman have found them to be easily managed with some home care and education.
Currently I live on a small volcanic island. I love the idea of living on the land and being independently stable regardless of what society is doing around us. We grow our own herbs, vegetable and fruit in our gardens. I love studying the plant life around me and finding out how they can be used in treating skin rashes, upset stomachs, headaches, diabetes, blood pressure.
Again welcome to Prolapse Health! I look forward to getting to know you and I hope you find a place to connect and grow in confidence in yourself here.
