What is Cystocele?

A cystocele occurs when the wall (made of supportive tissue) between a female's bladder and her vagina weakens and stretches. This allows the bladder to droop or bulge into the vagina, causing pain and bladder problems. It more commonly occurs during a pregnancy when the pelvic muscles are strained.

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, insomnia, fatigue, and pain) regardless of condition.
