Kindly reply with few questions so that I can guide you further: 1)Along with pain do you have any associated symptoms like mass per vaginum or any bowel or urinary disturbances? 2)Are you married ? do you have kids? if yes, how many and how were they delivered vaginal or caesarean? 3)are you sexually active? do you use any contraception presently? 4)how are your menstrual periods?

Brief Answer: Unlikely to be uterine prolapse. Detailed Answer: Hello, I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons. Coming back to your question, I have analyzed your query. Considering your nulligravida (no kids) status and history it is unlikely to be uterine prolapse. It could be anything related to CERVICAL ELONGATION. I think you have been treated with pessary for the same. Other differential diagnosis could be RECTAL PROLAPSE. For confirmation of diagnosis you need a clinical examination, especially a per-speculum examination to know the exact pathology and also to take PAP smear. Your doctor might even do a per-vaginum and per-rectal examination, also a scan is beneficial. Depending on the findings treatment can be planned. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Brief Answer: Lengethening of cervix could be a cause. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. Coming back to your questions: not uterine prolapse? From your history its Unlikely to be uterine prolapse. what is cervical elongation? It is lengthening of cervix, could be congenital or due to uterine fibroids. what is per speculum? This is a clinical examination done by a doctor, using a speculum the vagina is retracted to see the cervix and if they is any problem is looked for. And a PAP smear (cervical cytology) is taken. ive never had a pap smear test whats per vaginum? Two gloved fingers are inserted into the vagina and looked for any uterine or any other pelvis problem which can be palpated. per rectal too? Same clinical examination where a single finger is inserted into the anus to look for any rectal problems. what type of scan the only one hes done is a pelvic us that said deviated to the left----As you have not given complete information about the scan it is difficult to comment on it. If possible scan and send me the report. i have yet to know if i will need a posible future colonoscopy? You may require, it had be decided after clinical examination by a surgeon or proctologist. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Brief Answer: previous history of pelvic infection. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons. Coming back to your question, your uterus is absolutely normal, the deviation could be due to pelvic adhesion formation (adhesion means adhering of uterus to pelvic side walls) which might be the cause for deviation of uterus. The adhesions could be due to any previous history of pelvic infection. your endometrial thickness is also normal. I personally feel there is no need to get any further investigations, if in doubt you can always go for further investigation like CT scan. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Brief Answer: Your scan is normal Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thank you for the follow up question. Your previous 2004 scan report is also normal except for retroverted uterus. I asked you to go for CT(computerised tomography) scan if you are not convinced by the ultrasound report. Usually ultrasound is enough for diagnosing basic pelvic pathologies. I personally feel there is nothing active intervention required in your case. You can follow my previous advise to go for clinical examination. Kindly do not worry. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
