Prolapsed Bladder (cont.)

Prolapsed Bladder Symptoms

The first symptom that women with a prolapsed bladder usually notice is the presence of tissue in the vagina that many women describe as something that feels like a ball.

Other symptoms of a prolapsed bladder include the following:

  • 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)
  • Low back pain

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