The first symptom that women with a prolapsed bladder usually notice is a feeling of pressure in the vagina or bladder.

Other symptoms of a prolapsed bladder include: 

  • Discomfort or pain in the pelvis
  • Tissue protruding from the vagina (The tissue may be tender and may bleed.)
  • Difficulty urinating
  • A feeling that the bladder is not empty immediately after urinating (incomplete voiding)
  • Stress incontinence (urine leakage during sneezing, coughing, exertion, etc)
  • More frequent bladder infections
  • Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Incontinence during intercourse
  • Low back pain

Some women may not experience or notice symptoms from a mild (grade 1) prolapsed bladder.
