Cystocele occurs when the supportive tissue between a balder and vaginal wall weakens and stretches allowing the bladder to bulge into the vagina, it is also called as Anterior Prolapsed or Prolapsed Bladder.

Straining during vaginal childbirth or chronic constipation, violent coughing or heavy lifting tends to cause the Cystocele.

Symptoms include discomfort when strain, coughing or lifting, feeling fullness or pressure in pelvic and vaginal, repeated bladder infection feeling like sitting on an egg as a bulge of tissue protrudes through vaginal opening.


It depends upon the severity of prolapsed in mild cases the urologist will provide a measure to prevent worsening of the condition by advising to perform kegal exercise. A supportive device or pessary made up of plastic or rubber inserted into the vagina to support the bladder.

Surgical Management:
when the symptoms are too uncomfortable the urologist advises for surgery which is performed vaginally by lifting the prolapsed bladder back into its place, removing extra tissue and tightening the ligament and muscles of pelvic floor.
