Bladder prolapse is a condition in which the wall between the bladder and vagina weakens enough that the bladder begins encroaching on the vaginal canal.

Symptoms associated with prolapse include: frequent urination or urge to urinate; stress incontinence; not feeling bladder relief immediately after urinating; frequent urinary tract infections; discomfort or pain in the vagina, pelvis, lower abdomen, groin or lower back; heaviness or pressure in the vaginal area; painful intercourse; or tissue protruding from the vagina that may be tender and/or bleeding. Mild cases of prolapse may not cause any symptoms.
