Cystocele (Bladder Prolapse)

Womens_Health

Cystocele happens when the bladder sags or presses into the vagina. It is also called bladder prolapse.

Pregnancy, pelvic surgery, or being overweight may damage the muscles and other support tissues in your pelvis. Or the muscles and tissues may get weaker as you age. These can make the bladder sag. This may cause uncomfortable pressure in your vagina.

A cystocele usually does not cause serious health problems. You may find relief by making lifestyle changes and doing exercises to make the pelvic muscles stronger. Talk to your doctor about steps you can take to reduce symptoms. If your symptoms go on, you may want to talk to your doctor about surgery.
