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.
