A prolapsed bladder, or cystocele, occurs when the bladder drops into the vagina.
Prolapsed bladders are caused by a weakening in the muscles that form a wall between the vagina and the bladder. This can cause the bladder to drop down into the vagina or through the opening in the vagina.
Prolapsed bladders are commonly caused by childbirth, chronic coughing, persistent constipation and straining bowl movements, obesity, and heavy lifting. Risk of prolapsed bladders increases with age.
