symptoms can include but are not limited too;

~ feeling like you can feel 'something' in your vagina or rectum (like there is a tampon low in the vagina or ball or other object)
~ feeling like something is digging into the vagina or rectum
~ feeling like you are sitting on an object, like a small ball
~ a dragging feeling, pain or discomfort in the pelvic region, rectum or vagina
~ feeling a bulge in the vagina or rectum
~ discomfort or pain during sexual intercourse
~ issues with peeing, feeling like your bladder is not empty, needing to pee frequently
~ leaking pee at anytime (randomly, cough, sneeze, laugh, jump etc)
~ leaking poop, or poop smearing in underwear
~ feeling like you cannot fully empty your bowels, or like there is poop there you are to able to pass (stool trapping)
~ faecal incontinence, leaking poop at any time
~ seeing a bulge at the entrance to the vagina, or seeing something protruding from the vagina or anus (a lump, tissue coloured)
