Cystocele

Specialty of Andrology

Cystocele hernia is a protrusion or bladder into the vaginal canal. It occurs when the muscle that supports the bladder wall is so weak that it is unable to maintain its normal position, so the bladder tends to move down. This weakness can cause urine leakage from the bladder when abdominal pressure increases, which is what happens when you cough or sneeze, for example. Cystocele is relatively common in women after age 40 disorder, and the likelihood increases with age at menopause, after a particularly difficult birth and when obesity, among other reasons. In mild cases, treatment consists in performing Kegel exercises, which strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Surgery is needed in severe cases or when they fail those years.
