What Is A Rectocele?
A rectocele also known as a prolapsed rectume is a condition that causes your rectum to bulge out through your vagina. A rectocele can happen when the thin layer of muscles separating your rectum from your vagina becomes weak. Stool may stay in your rectum because the rectocele makes it harder to push stool out.
What Is A Cystocele?
A cystocele, also called a prolapsed or dropped bladder, is the bulging or dropping of the bladder, usually into the vagina. The bladder, located in the pelvis between the pelvic bones, is a hollow, muscular, balloon-shaped organ that expands as it fills with urine. During urination, also called voiding, the bladder empties through the urethra, located at the bottom of the bladder. The urethra is the tube that carries urine outside of the body. The vagina is the tube in a woman’s body that runs beside the urethra and connects the womb, or uterus, to the outside of the body.
