What is a Cystocele?

A cystocele occurs when the fibrous wall that separates a woman’s vagina from her bladder suffers a tear. This tear allows the bladder to bulge into the vagina.

What Are The Different Stages of Cystocele?

Grade 1

The bladder only moves a short distance down into the vaginal canal.

Grade 2

The bladder has dropped significantly into the vagina, reaching the point where it is visible at the vaginal opening.

Grade 3

The tear allows the bladder to bulge into the vagina.

What Causes Cystocele?

Many factors can cause a cystocele, here are a few:

  • Aging
  • Overweight
  • Childbirth
  • Heavy lifting
  • Chronic coughing
  • Repeated straining

What Are The Symptoms of Cystocele?

Common symptoms of a cystocele include urinary frequency, urgency, retention, and incontinence.

What is the Treatment for Cystocele

While more minor cystoceles can sometimes be managed with vaginal muscle strengthening exercises or by avoiding strenuous activities such as lifting, more severe cystoceles will require surgical repair. Your Urologist will surgically move the patient’s bladder back into a more normal position and repair the tear.
