I saw my doctor because of rectal pain and constipation. Sometimes, an area of this wall gets weak, and part of the rectum bulges into the vagina. This bulge is called a rectocele. A rectocele usually develops after the vaginal wall is damaged when a baby is born in the normal way, without a cesarean section. But symptoms may not develop until later in life.
Rectocele Guide: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Options
Vaginal prolapse is a common condition with an estimated one in two women suffering from this condition. A vaginal prolapse occurs when the vaginal walls and tissues supporting the pelvic organs weaken and stretch. Bladder prolapse — bladder bulges into the front wall of the vagina. Rectocoele — bowel bulges int to the back wall of the vagina. Uterine prolapse — uterus moves down into the vagina. A vaginal prolapse can involve any one of these types of prolapse and they can also occur in combination with each other for example a woman may be diagnosed with a prolapse of both the front and back walls of the vagina bladder and rectal prolapse. Vaginal prolapse may present with a variety of different symptoms depending upon the type and severity of the prolapse.
