Vaginal prolapse, commonly known as a cystocele or a rectocele, occurs when vaginal tissue drops beyond the vaginal opening. Women may experience a bulge, pelvic pain or heaviness, discomfort with intercourse, or difficulty with urination and bowel movements. When the above symptoms start to interfere with a woman’s daily life, she will need to consider treatment. Initial treatment options often include non-surgical techniques, such as pelvic physical therapy to help strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. However, when symptoms persist, vaginal colporrhaphy is often curative. Colporrhaphy involves using a women’s own tissue to strengthen and tuck bulging tissue back into place.
