I thought I would share my experience in order to help other women who may have the same problem.
I've had to deal with the pain and discomfort of having a prolapsed bladder since last summer (I'm 64 and have no health insurance). I had heard a doctor on TV say that tampons can help women with incontinence (I don't have that because of Kegal exercises) due to prolapsed bladder. So I decided to try it. It was so painful trying to get the tampon in (due to dryness) and then out that I gave it up until I went for my blood test for thyroid medicine and my doctor suggested Premarin vaginal cream to allefiate the dryness. It is helping but also I'm able to use the applicator to put K-y gel up the vagina to insert the tapon without pain. Also lubricating the tampon itself with bagbalm to heal the sensitive area helps tremendously. The tampon holds the bladder in place, hopefully to cause the surrounding tissue to attach itself to the bladder and eventially not have to use the tampons. It is wonderful not to be in that pain anymore. Perhaps the tampon can help women with prolapsed uteruses too.
