What is Bladder Prolapse?

Prolapsed Bladder is a condition where the wall of the vagina, which supports the bladder, can weaken causing the bladder to prolapse or bulge into the vagina. There are 4 stages of a prolapsed bladder from 1 which is mild, up to a 4 which is severe. Only a diagnosis from a doctor can determine how severe the prolapse is and a proper plan of treatment.

What Causes Bladder Prolapse?

Factors commonly associated with causing a prolapsed bladder are those that weaken the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments such as:

  • Childbirth
  • Menopause
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Prolonged straining from constipation
