Bladder prolapse is a common condition whereby weakened and/or stretched vaginal supports cause the bladder to drop. Women with bladder prolapse will usually note a bulge in the vagina. In more severe cases, the bladder can sometimes be fully visible or seen dropping through the vaginal opening. Other symptoms of bladder prolapse may be incontinence, pain, vaginal pressure, and frequent UTIs. While childbirth is the most common risk factor for bladder prolapse, many other factors can also lead to prolapse of the bladder, including chronic constipation, weight gain, menopause, heavy lifting, and age.
