Fallen Bladder (Cystocele) Women's Health Symptoms

What is a Fallen Bladder?

A fallen bladder occurs when the wall between a woman’s bladder and her vagina becomes weak and the bladder then droops into the vagina.


  • Bladder prolapse (bladder coming out of the vagina)
  • Unwanted urine leakage
  • In some cases, when the woman coughs, sneezes, laughs, or moves in a way that puts pressure on her bladder.
  • Incomplete emptying of bladder


  • Weak pelvic floor
  • Muscle strained from giving birth
  • Repeated strain during bowel movement
  • Symptom of Menopause
