    WOOPS!
    Allison Henry isn't the first to suffer from a horrifying medical condition that few women talk about. But her case was particularly bad, and she's just one of the few brave souls willing to come forward so that others will have the courage to seek help.

    To put it bluntly, as Henry does: "My vagina fell out of my body."

    ....""I was referred to a pelvic floor specialist. She took a look and said, 'Holy crap -- your vagina is falling out of your body, and it's dragging your bladder and your rectum along with it!'"...........

    And I the engineering school.

    This is like reading about getting kicked in the balls but worse. At the very least getting kicked in the balls doesn't involved protrusion.

    Wow.

    30% of women will suffer some degree of prolapse in their lifetime? Yikes. Perhaps this should be moved to Women's Issues.

    Ditto. I know a woman who had a bad case of bronchitis a few years ago and during a particularly bad coughing fit dislodged her uterus. She ended up having an emergency hysterectomy.:eek::frown1:
