What are the Symptoms of Bladder Prolapse?

The most common symptom is the feeling of a vaginal bulge. A bulge in the vagina is something you can see or feel.

Other signs and symptoms that may be related to prolapse are:

  • frequent voiding or the urge to pass urine
  • urinary incontinence (unwanted loss of urine)
  • not feeling relief right after voiding
  • frequent urinary tract infections
  • pain in the vagina, pelvis, lower abdomen, groin or lower back
  • heaviness or pressure in the vaginal area
  • sex that is painful
  • tissue sticking out of the vagina that may be tender and/or bleeding

Some cases of prolapse may not cause any symptoms.
