What causes a prolapse of the bladder and what are the options

Customer Question

What causes a prolapse of the bladder and what are the options to put it right?

Bladder prolapse is caused by tissues weakness in the pelvic floor region due to child birth as well as aging. To fix this, you need to see a urogynecologist for an exam and they may be able to correct this with a surgery to repair the pelvic organ prolapse. This is called a cystocele repair. Hope this helps.
