A posterior vaginal prolapse, or rectocele, occurs when the rectum bulges against the wall of the vagina, causing the vagina wall to move. 

Rectoceles are common following childbirth, and the risk increases with age. 

Symptoms include: a visual protruding of bowl tissue in the vagina; constipation; feeling of fullness in the rectum, even following a bowel movement; and looseness in the vagina.
