Cystocele Definition and Symptoms

Cystocele is when the supportive tissue between the bladder and vaginal wall weakens and stretches, which allows the bladder to bulge into the vagina. Common causes of this condition are chronic constipation, pregnancy, vaginal childbirth, being overweight/obese, chronic violent cough, and straining with bowel movements. Symptoms include a bulge of tissue that may feel like sitting on an egg, a feeling of not being able to empty the bladder completely, pain during sexual intercourse, repeated bladder inefctions, and a feeling of “fullness” in the pelvis.
