Hernia from vagina ?

After I gave birth to my daughter I noticed this lump of tissue that just protudes from my vagina. Since then (7 years September) I have 2 more children. I was told by my doctors that pelvic floor exercises will help but found no difference and it seems as time goes on to be getting a tiny bit bigger and on occasion quite dry and a little sore. I wanted to know if it sounded like it could be a hernia because I think after all this time my doctors might be wrong.

It sounds like you are experiencing a case of vaginal prolapse.
It is a condition that can develop after giving a childbirth, as a result of weakened muscles, ligaments, and skin in and around a vagina.
These structures keep the womb, rectum, bladder, urethra, small bowel, or the vagina itself at the right place, and when they are weakened or broken some of these organs can begin to prolapse, or fall, out of their normal position.
Without medical treatment or surgery, these structures may eventually prolapse farther and farther into the vagina or even through the vaginal opening.
Long, difficult labors and large babies are especially stressful to these structures. Childbirth is the risk factor most commonly associated with rectocele (prolapse of the rectum through the vaginal wall).

Me too!
I have the same thing I noticed a few days ago. It's up pretty high inside. If there is no pain can you just live with it? I can't go to the doc until I go back up to Canada. Sad

Vaginal Prolapse if asymptomatic-no pain, no pain during sex, and no urge and frequency in urination-is not usually treated.

I have a lump in my vaginal area. It is near the rectum. I am hoping that it is a hernia and nothing else. I think it's a hernia as it is only there when I sit down. When I stand it can't be felt. It gets larger as I sit down then disappears when I stand up. I have to make an appointment I guess but I am a little reticent as its in such a personal area and as I said before you cant feel the lump when I lie down or stand. Just by sitting and squatting. What a nightmare!
