Bladder Prolapse

Causes of Bladder Prolapse

There are several potential causes of cystocele, but all center on stretching and straining the muscles separating the vagina and pelvis. Indeed, straining muscles during childbirth, straining during heavy lifting, straining due to chronic coughing (or other lung-related problems), and repeated straining during bowel movements can all be causes of bladder prolapse, as can weakened vaginal muscles caused by a lack of estrogen after menopause.
