Bladder Prolapse (Cystocele)
Prolapse of the bladder is the most common type of pelvic organ prolapse. It is a condition where the bladder falls down into the vagina causing pain, urinary problems and other complications. It should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible as leaving it alone will most likely worsen the condition.
- Tissue protruding from vaginal opening
- Pain and discomfort
- Urinary leakage
- Difficulty urinating
- Bladder infections
- Bleeding / spotting
- Low back pain
- Painful intercourse
- Strain from lifting heavy objects
- Standing for long periods of time
Treatment methods for bladder prolapse differ from woman to woman and depend on many factors. Factors include prolapse type, severity of the prolapse, age, health status, lifestyle, treatment preference, and whether or not you want to have a baby. However, they all boil down to two categories: surgical or non-surgical.
Since pelvic organ prolapse is not a life-threatening condition, you should consider all treatment options before deciding on surgery. There are many prolapse surgery pros and cons, including that it is expensive and is not guaranteed long term.
Non-surgical options include Kegel exercises, pessary for prolapse, and estrogen replacement therapy. Kegel exercises and estrogen replacement therapy are more suitable for mild cases or for bladder prolapse. These may take much time and commitment before you see results, and not all women can take estrogen (for example certain cancer patients). A prolapse pessary has varying success rates, not everyone can be fitted for a pessary, and the device must be replaced often.
